I understand that the sound of the CCR-2 is muffled on AM compared to the CCR-SW and SR III. How is the sound on FM compared to these two radios? Does the CCR-2 have good bass and treble response on FM?

Gary, there is no muffled sound at all on the CCR-2. It's the CCR-SW that offers harsh, mediocre AM, not even close to the great AM on the CCR-2. The CCR-2 has above average FM performance but it's not an FM powerhouse like the SR II or the CCR-SW or the Eton/Grundig S350.

The SR III is not a powerhouse either but delivers above average FM reception.

So, does the CCR-2 have good, full-range sound on FM, with solid bass and crisp treble? One of the reviews you posted said the speaker is not good for music, which is why I'm asking.

I find the CCR-SW sounds very good for music on FM. I don't notice the harshness on AM. Maybe it's sample-to-sample variation.

Gary, sound is so subjective, I'm reluctant to offer absolutes on radio sound. I hated the sound of my CCR-SW and sold it (again) and find that music sound on the CCR-2 more than adequate but lacking the warmth and richness of the BA Horizon Solo and Duo. For music listening, get a Solo or Duo. For AM listening and talk radio in general, get a CCR-2. There is no one-size-fits-all radio.
