This new 2E version is not on Amazon yet and the non 2e version is no longer available on the Amazon site:http://www.amazon.com/Crane-CC2B-Radio-2-Weather-2-Meter/dp/B002NU5RZS/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

From the description on C Crane's web site, the enhancement sounds as if it may concern audio quality, with the ability of the user to adjust the tone for either voice or music. The images they have are of the previous model, so you can't tell if there's an added control of some type.

Regardless, an improvement in the audio quality of this radio would be welcome. This model and the previous versions have always sounded muddled to me, even though I've liked this radio for years.

Maybe they've included wide and narrow AM filters, as the CCRadio-EP has, selectable via its Music/Voice control.

Hmm, but it says that the FM performance is "a full step up".... Maybe the front-end filtering has been tightened affecting FM bandwidth as well.

Tim

Will it really make a difference to the ears? That's all I want to know.

Gary

If they put in a wider AM IF filter, it should make a big difference in the clarity of the sound. I guess we'll have to wait for the first reviews to know for sure.

I briefly owned an original CCRadio in 1999, but I found the AM audio too muffled for my taste, so I returned it.

I'd be almost certain based on the phrase "audio can be accurately tuned for realistic human voice. It can also be adjusted for good musical performance" that it has a wide/narrow AM IF filter.

I had a conversation with a CCrane customer service person prior to placing an order for the 2E yesterday. The person told me the "enhancements" are an upgraded DSP chip (no details given ) and wider range bass and treble controls. All "enhancements" are internal. There is nothing in the way of external changes; no new switches, controls, buttons, etc.

I received the new CC Radio 2 Enhanced today and love it! This is my first CC Radio and so I don't have anything to compare it too, but the sound quality is excellent. FM is extremely selective and sensitive. AM id great, of course. No new buttons based on the pictures, but some upgrades in the production run is what Customer Service told me. FM does have a stereo light come on when the reception is very good and so maybe that's new. I read the reviews about the voice being better than the music, but I think that both are excellent. Another minor change is that weather alert can be turned on while in Ham mode which I think is something new. Box and manual are identical to prior CC Radio 2. Great radio and would highly recommend! Not really enough upgrades to warrant trading in an older CC Radio 2 version, but if you were on the fence because of music sound quality and FM performance, no need to be on the fence anymore.
