Best Audio for its Size

With the Gozo the FM, as well as AM, is superb when listening to a strong local station. You can also enjoy the full extent of your music library or smart phone tunes by connecting to the input jack on the back of the radio. The Gozo was specifically developed for high fidelity audio in a small package and is tuned for just these kinds of devices. The radio gives you an unbelievably cosmic blend of sound due to the additional passive radiator built in.

These radios are great! I own 2. Yes, they are retro-looking, but the sound they generate is so clear... there's a part on the back for bass to come out... the tuners are wonderful and the quality is high... also you can turn them up much higher that you would expect and the sound quality stays great. With all these features, the counter space used is minimal! There is a 1/8 inch aux input on the back as well. Great product!" P Harvey, Alpharetta GA.

A sturdy handle/stand and precise Vernier dial complete the picture for this radio's inspirational audio.

This is a great little radio. But if using it around the home use the A/C power adapter because the battery life is quite dismal.

This radio has excellent sound when used with the AUX input. However the AM reception is terrible even on strong local stations. I would not recommend this radio if you plan on using it for AM reception.

Worked okay for about a month, and then developed a "thumping sound" that makes it impossilbe to use.

While the FM reception and sound quality fully met my expectations, the AM reception and sound quality are totally inadequate. I will use the GOZO for FM, and will stream my favorite AM station on my laptop which has "Beats" audio and is much better sound quality than the GOZO.

I am so happy with this radion I keep a radio in my kitchen and listen to it all the time. When I got this radio, it was so amazing! The sound quality was exceptional. I will stick with Crane Radios in the future.

I pre-ordered the CC Gozo after talking with a factory rep in October. I probably received one of the first units to be delivered to consumers. I wanted to use this radio for a couple of months rather than post just a one-day comment. First, I have been a portable radio fan since the days of the RCA two-D cell AM radios of the 1960s. I have had five GE Super Radios over the years. Each has given acceptable service, but I have steadily watched the quality decline. I call the Gozo my new "mighty-mite." The sound quality rivals and I must say sometimes exceeds the best of the much-larger GE Supers. I keep the Gozo on my bedside stand and I listen to it each morning and night. The sound is crisp and concise. I listen to jazz, classical and some contemporary music. It is great for voice, too. As far as radio station pulling power, the rep was frank about its AM power. That is OK with me because our AM stations in the Schenectady NY area are not what I am interested in listening to anyway. I do find the Gozo is acceptable for AM. I find the FM pulling power of the Gozo to be more than adequate for my needs. I listen to a weak-power college FM station one mile away. There is no signal bleed. I also listen to a Vermont station about 100 miles away. The Gozo picks up WMHT and WAMC, our two public radio stations, loud and very clear. I can't ask for more than that. The cabinet quality appears good. I don't like the chrome-screw arrangement for the batteries. I think it spoils the clean look of the unit. That said, I am still running on the first set of batteries after many hours of use. Overall, the Gozo is a Little Giant of a radio. Great job to the folks at C.Crane.

Received mine today. I was tempted to give it a 5 star rating. But really now, how much in life is perfect? Sound is superb at this price point. For me the AM is better than on the CCRadio-EP, however, I find that AM is really dependent on a lot of variables and your mileage may vary. FM is full sounding and the tone control works well. Radio feels solid. I like the way the light on the dial comes on as your tuning. Tuning knob works properly for this kind of tuning, meaning that it works slowly and stiffly. Makes a fine AM/FM desktop radio for those of us with little space (I live in a studio apt.). My review must be tempered by the fact that my experience with the unit is one day. Controls are plastic & I prefer metal controls (I do not expect metal at this price point). I would have preferred that it was not manufactured in Red China. I understand it would have cost more if it was manufactured in the USA, Japan, Taiwan, or another USA ally, but I would be willing to pay more. My reasons for being suspicious of China is political and practical. Mechanically, will this unit stand the test of time? We will not know for a while. My initial reaction to the radio is I am pleased with my purchase.

I just got mine today and I have to say that I am AMAZED at the sound on this little thing! It sounds incredibly rich and full. I have my iPod Nano clipped on the side of the handle (it fits perfectly) and plugged into the input port and the clarity is incredible. I bought the CC Gozo to fill the gap between my larger radios, including my CCRadio Plus, which sound really good but are a little large to carry outside or put in my backpack and and my pocket radios which are very portable but I mainly use for talk radio because they sound too tinny for serious music listening. From what I can tell so far the CC Gozo fills the bill perfectly. In terms of sound quality it punches well above its' weight; it sounds Bose-like (which is high praise considering that Bose is widely considered to make some of the best compact audio equipment on the planet!) In terms of build quality it seem extremely well-made. When I took it out of the box I wasn't sure at first if it was made of plastic or metal! I also like the fact that the battery cover is screwed down so you know it won't come off (the battery cover bows out slightly in the middle once tightened down but it's not a major issue.) The backlit tuning dial is a very nice touch and the vernier tuning makes it easy to center the dial on even narrow band AM stations, which can be maddeningly difficult to tune accurately on tuners that are too touchy. The tuner is stiff to turn, which means once you put it on a station you know it's going to say there until you change it. The wire handle is a sweet design feature also, it gives it a sort of retro look. In terms of modern radios I think it compares favorably to radios of the past. I collect radios and one of my prized possessions is a 1953 Zenith Trans Oceanic portable shortwave radio I restored, so I know whereof I speak (I think). All in all I like the CC Gozo a lot and would recommend it to anyone!

They are not kidding about the audio quality! I have never heard music like this from a radio this size. It is about the size of the transistor radios from the 1960's but sounds like a boom box! I'd say it is incredible and worth owning.

Very poor AM long range reception. Difficult to tune. Suggest purchasers avoid this product and buy the CCRadio-2.

I received my new CCGOZO just a few days ago. I had some idea of what to expect as I was able to see a prototype when I visited the CC showroom a month or two ago.So far I am very pleased with my purchase. The cabinet has a nice solid feel. The controls all work smoothly although the main tuning is a bit stiff. The CCGOZO comes with a linear wall transformer power supply so there is no noise from the supply as there can be with switching supplies. There is also a short cable included for use with an iPod/MP3 player or other aux input device.Radio performance is better than I expected. AM and FM sensitivity and selectivity are almost as good as my original CC radio. (The CC2 radio would probably be a notch or two above in performance). The GOZO tuning dial calibration is very good. Speaking of the tuning dial, the LED backlight is a nice touch. When you first turn the radio on the dial light comes on for a short period and then goes out. As you tune to a new station the dial light comes on again.The best part of all is the outstanding audio quality from such a small radio. The audio is clear and bright. The tone control will fine tune the audio to individual tastes. Also, it has plenty of volume for its size

I just received my GOZO today. All I can say is WOW! It feels very solidly built. It has a nice quality feel to it. As far as the sound goes it is amazingly good given the size of the radio. The tuning dial is really neat, it lights up only when tuning then it fades out. It feels like it is geared so you can slowly tune in a station without zooming by it. I also like the metal handle on it. It is built to be used and carried. The handle makes you want to pick it up and bring it with you. There are only 2 things about this radio I noticed.1 - The stereo patch cord they include so that you can plug in an MP3 player is kind of poor quality. It causes static & dropped channel if you move cable around which will be the case if you are holding onto your mp3 player to select music. This is not a big deal since I plan to get a longer high quality cable so that I can set the radio on table and set back with player in hand.2 - I really like the industrial looking battery compartment door with its 2 big head screws used to hold 6 AA batteries. The only thing I noticed is that the door seems to be a little flimsy in the fact that when the screws are secured all the way down the center of the door bows out from the pressure of the batteries. This isn't a real big deal since it seems to hold the batteries secure enough, it is just a fit and finish thing that bothers me about it.So far I am very happy with this radio. It has only been a few hours and I plan on putting through it's paces. I will come back with an update on battery life and head phone use and anything else I can report on.Good job C.Crane! The wait for this radio so far seems to have been worth it.

What's in the Box
  • CC Gozo Radio
  • AC Power Adapter
  • 1/8" Audio Patch Cord
  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.
    — John A., Mill Valley, CA
  • This radio deserves five stars because it sounds great, the ease of use and preset stations. This radio will become your favorite radio, also backed by great customer service if ever needed, thank you very much.
    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
    — Robert S., Tabernacle, NJ
  • I just received my EP radio yesterday. I'm totally impressed with the old school simplicity and the modern day sound quality. Thank you, C.Crane!
