I have a Redsun version. I've always loved it and was a bit puzzled that some reviewers rated it as crap. I kind of figured they must have a lot of variation in quality. Looks like you confirmed this.

Jeff - I've had two CCR-SW units, and they both sounded the same. One of them -- a C. Crane "orphan" -- did have a lot of play in the AM/FM knob, so I returned it and bought a second one from Amazon.

I bought 2 broken radios one was a CCRADIO SW and the other one was a TECSUN RP-2100 I fixed one with parts of the other and the sound of this radio is very pleasant, deep bass and good treble. They both had the same componentes and were easy interchangeable, same speaker and ferrite antenna also.

Mine has some play on the AM/FM selector knob as well. Is this normal or should i get it replaced? It's a Refurb from C. Crane and has a 1 yr warranty.

Dan - I think they all have some play in the AM/FM and SW selector knobs, but on the one I returned, it had maybe three times the play in the AM/FM knob than there is on the one I kept. One way to reduce the play is to pull the knob off and put some tape around the "inner" portion of the knob (try blue painter's tape; teflon tape may work as well). This will take up some of the slack between the inner portion of the knob and the hole in the front panel of the radio.

@Gary: Thank you for the tip. I will try that!
