My Ccrane was purchased in 2000 and recently returned from its third trip from Ca. The first when I bought it and the second for the lcd repair. Finally this week the high maintenance radio with noisy preselects returned from a speaker problem repair and I find the battery box (I hope this is the problem) is not working. I have not recommended this radio for many years and this year have bought a standby radio that is so far good. It is the Sangean PR-D5.
Too bad I paid so much for the CCrane and two repairs. If I return it one more time it will be a $400 radio!

A few days ago I purchased the Aussie version of this radio, the Sangean PR-D3L. I bought it because of the supposedly great sounding speaker, but was disappointed when I turned it on. It was as though they had filtered off the upper midrange on the AM, leaving it sounding really awful. Add to that a terrible hiss with the volume at zero. I returned it that day.

Adam, I wonder what you would think of the Boston Acoustics Horizon Solo or Duo models. Their speaker sound is superb. And the reception is excellent generally speaking.
