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 ›

The C Crane Co CC2B radio receiver is the best I have ever used. The reception is exceptional for all bandwidths. The quality is top of the line. The operation of the different functions is staight forward easy to understand and perform. In all this radio is an engineering work of art. I recommend this radio to anyone. I live in an area that is rural where reception is not consistent, and my house tends to inhibit good radio frequency reception. This radio is consistently picking up everything I want even without an added external antenna. Absolutely great product all around.
A very satisfied customer,

I had been toying with purchasing this radio for several months. Awaiting a price drop, which never happened, I figured this would pretty much be the standing price on this radio. Even the older model that has the TV band on it sells for only $10.00 less than this one. In any event, here I go. The main reason I purchased this radio was for AM DX'ing. C Crane sells itself on this radio for that feature. I have been listening to the radio for several nights now and have found that the AM performance meets or exceed other models; however, not by any larger margain. The daytime monitoring of distant stations did actually appear better than other AM models for certain stations. In general I would have to say that I do see an improvement in AM reception. The FM quality is actually pretty good as well. The addition of the Ham Band is a great idea as I am also a Ham radio Operator. The weather band works well as long as the antenna is raised, which I found I have to do with all my WX radios anyway. The radio is solid and heavy and does not draw much power on the D batteries. The AC plug that goes directly into tha back of the unit, beats the AC adpater type plus that are bulky and usually do not fit into a power strip. Pro's, Good AM DX with minimal fade. Heavy and sturdy radio, well made. Nice and bright LCD backlight that can be adjusted. Con's Only 5 memories per band. I used all the AM ones and needed 5 more. Price is more than expected for a radio with these these features. C Crane will not warranty the unit unless you purchase directly from them. Fortunately Smarthome will cover the one year warranty of the radio.
Other than that it appears to be a good radio. I will provide updates as necessary.
