Product Description

The Premium Radio Designed for Long-Range AM Reception and Emergencies!

The AM reception has been boosted from C. Crane's patented built-in Twin-Coil Ferrite AM Antenna and other improvements. Thanks to audio that is optimized for voice clarity, your favorite stations sound just right.

The FM reception is excellent. The weather band on the CC Radio-2 will keep you informed of any government issued alerts. The 2- Meter Ham band can be a life saver in emergencies like Katrina where local Ham operators handle emergency coordination efforts.

It features a full backlight display with three levels of brightness. The display is sharp and easy to read. It also has an "off" setting. The display shows the station you are on and then automatically changes to the clock after 15 seconds.

Other radio features include: 5 memories per band, bass and treble control, clock, alarm, sleep timer, auto scan, headphone jack, line-in/line-output jack.

Runs on included AC power cord or 4 (optional) "D" batteries.

This radio is great with good sound and good reception.

I called the company and they did have me ship it back and fixed the problem (I'll even add that I was in about month 13 and they covered it under warranty).

FM reception on my CCR-2 has proven to be well above average and even my weak station 89.3 KPCC comes in loud and clear.

If you listen to AM a lot and want a digital radio with presets, you don't have a lot of options. You can spend about $75 on the Sangean PR-D5, a very good radio, or spend about $160 on the slightly better CCR-2. I find I like the bigger speaker on the CCR-2 than I do the small twin speakers on the PR-D5. Also the big presets on top of the CCR-2 are easy to find if you're toggling in a dark bedroom and you won't push the radio over. In contrast, the PR-D5 has tiny buttons on the front and it's very easy to tip it over.

FM reception on my CCR-2 has proven to be well above average and even my weak station 89.3 KPCC comes in loud and clear. However, there is hiss on 89.3 through my earbuds, but no hiss on the other, more strong FM stations I listen to on the buds.

As far as a clock radio goes, the CCR-2 is better than the PR-D5 simply for the tip-over factor. If you're not a big AM listener, you might want to look at the Boston Acoustics Horizon Solo, which costs about $90 and has far better fidelity, warmth, and richness of any other table radio I've had and/or tested.

I suspect most people will be happy with the CCR-2. Don't take the great AM reception for granted on this strong radio. Most ferrite antennas are only about 3.5 inches or so and deliver at best mediocre AM. The PR-D5 and the CCR-2 are the only digital radios you can buy now that I know of that have a 200mm (8 inch) ferrite internal AM antenna. If you listen to AM, as I do and are looking for a bedside radio, the CCR-2 is a strong choice.

If you are looking to get a top-of-the-line radio, this is the one to get. The only thing I can say negative about this radio is that the price is a little steep. Its not for everyone but for those serious radio people out there, get this radio. I heard there were some quality issues with the 1st Ccrane radio but they have all been resolved with this radio. It has weather, HAM, AM and FM. It also has an alarm, timer, sleep function and just about everything you need or can have in a radio except World Band. When I got this radio I was surprised how solid and heavy it feels, especially with the batteries in it (4-D cells) I got the black model (not silver) and was also surprised how good it looks. This radio also has a line out and line in jack and place for a external AM antenna. It has all the bells and whistles someone could possible want or ask for. I havent used the HAM radio function yet and probably wont too much but I hear it could come in handy if a natural disaster occurs and knocks out the local radio stations or other media. The weather channel works great and is a nice feature when you want to check the local weather. It also has a weather alert function that you can keep on and the radio will alert you if there is severe weather on the way. Again, probably not a feature you will use a lot but its great to have just in case. AM and FM work great and you probably wont find a radio that outperforms this radio or has all the features this radio has. It also has a built in light that you can keep on or turn off when you choose. I was debating on whether to purchase this radio because of the price but I am glad I did.Read more ›

Verified Purchase
The new C. Crane CC Radio-2 is a unique product - unique in that it provides exceptionally sensitive AM/FM reception, the 2 Meter VHF HAM band, Weather Band with Weather Alerting, full digital features such as memory presets, clock and timer functions and it can operate on its built in AC power supply or 4 D cells. And specifically, as of this writing, the CC Radio-2 is the most sensitive digitally tuned AM portable you can buy. It is well made and feels solid and natural to use. As an AM radio junkie I find it an especially fun radio to band scan with knowing that it will hear anything that is there to be heard plus it adds digital tuning accuracy.
I believe users of the previous CC Radio models will be well pleased with the changes and improvements incorporated into the CCR2. Those unfamiliar with the CC Radio line will find this to be an attractive quality product that provides them with excellent reception and clock/alarm/timer functions that provide them with a lot of flexibility.

I like talk radio which is on the AM part of the dial, so I figured that I would spend the considerably extra money to get this special radio. I am very gentle with tools, so I figured that it would last a long time (and I was not planning to let anybody but me use it). A few (like 3)months later, it stopped working. Didn't drop it or anything. I was crazy busy with work, so I put it on the back burner. Finally, about 6 months later I called CCradio and told them the situation. I explained that it had happened a while ago. Their response was that there was nothing they would do about it. I could send it in (and pay for the shipping) and they would TRY to repair it, charging me a minimum of $59.95 to see if they could see what the problem was. There was no promise to fix it, just to look at it. The actual cost to repair would be whatever it turned out to be. My hundred and some dollar radio could turn out to be a two hundred and some dollar radio. No thanks.
If I buy a $30 radio, I don't expect too much if it fails in 3 months. When the radio costs $150 or so, I expect a high level of service to match the high level of pricing. They and their radio failed. I would never buy from them again.

PRODUCT UPDATE!!!!!
I recently had some free(er) time and decided to see if I could find out what was wrong with the CCR radio. It turned out that the perfectly APPEARING speaker was defective (no torn speaker cone - nothing). I replaced the speaker and - voila! - now works again. The company still rates low with me. Poor product support is a deal breaker.
