Even though the CCRadio-2E is built in China by Sangean, it's true that C. Crane oversees the design. It took them four generations to get crisp AM sound (CCRadio, CCRadio Plus, CCRadio-2 and CCRadio-2E). I suspect Jay Allen's reviews and his discussions with Bob Crane have a lot to with the improvements found in the CCRadio-2E. It's good that C. Crane is listening and upgrading their designs accordingly.

It's too bad, and somewhat surprising, that the sound on AM of the Sangean PR-D15 isn't similarly improved over the PR-D5. I've heard that the PR-D15 is still very muffled sounding on AM.

Interesting looking radio:

To give an idea of the size of the radio:

Actually Sangean is listening and the PR-D15 added bass and treble controls that the PR-D5 didn't have. That was due to Universal Radios feedback to Sangean, who asks for their input on their radios.

That's true, but unfortunately the PR-D15 still has very muffled sound on AM, unlike the CCRadio-2E.

Funny how this radio is not listed by Sangean as an own product. They are still selling the original PRD-3L here in Australia albeit without DSP, Wx, 2m, etc (doesn't even have a signal meter - c'mon people!).

That tells me that C.Crane would have paid a bob or two for getting Sangean to develop the unit specifically for them especially with their engineering input.
