Just what I wanted!
Hoping the EP Pro would finally allow me to retire my 14 year old GE Superadio III. The EP Pro does the job and has some notable improvements. There is greatly improved tuning sensitivity, a longer telescoping antenna, and separate bass/treble controls. Thank you, C. Crane!
PROS
Simple analog tuning, multiple sensitivity controls, sturdy construction, very good reception from distant signals

EP PRO is really different from the original EP
This radio looks almost identical to its predecessor, but is totally different. This new one has a different feel when tuning - go slow to reap the rewards of the radio's sensitivity - but the tuning is much more accurate than before, and the AM sound is surprisingly clear. The FM is a huge improvement, and with headphones sounds quite spectacular with no loss in selectivity. I'm glad I bought it, even though I have hundreds of radios and found it hard to justfy my purchase in the beginning.
PROS
FM tuning, sound, and selectivityGood for AM DX receptionUnusually clear AM toneEasy to use antenna fine tuning for AM


CONS
A bit large and heavy with batteries , but forgiveable to accommodate a good internal antenna, and nice built-in speaker.AM tuning takes some time to get used to. It looks like an analog radio, but tunes like a digital, so you can miss weaker stations if you proceed too quickly


BEST USES
AM or FM DX, or general broadcast band listening.A good gift for someone who prefers a more traditional style radio

Super Sensitive Selective!
No, it doesn't tune like an analog radio but it zeros in on a weak signal and makes it listenable. Both AM FM is super sensitive selective. Performs better than my Panasonic RF2200. A real bargain!
PROS
Simple to use. Tunes like an analog but receives like a state-of-the-art digital radio it is DSP!. Full-time lighted dial is great! The sound from the large speaker is excellent! Twin coil antenna nulls out locals and brings in DX.


CONS
None, once you get used to how it tunes into a station.


BEST USES
It's a DX machine, but it's great for everyday use provides excellent sound! The 21st century version of the GE Super Radio!

Fantastic Radio
Radio is well above my expectations. Even though am radio in Australia is in 9khz this radio pulls in all the am stations loud and amazingly clear. On FM it pulls in stations I could never receive on other radios. Station selecting is easy if done slowly. Sound is terrific. Thank you CCrane
PROS
Easy to tune. Clear sound. Exterior FM antenna connection helps with distant and weak stations. Looks Great.


CONS
None


BEST USES
Great for around the home and when travelling the outback it receives stations other radios cannot pick up

Works great
At first I was not sure it was better then my older one. Then one day there was a click and it seemed to work better, and it is better then older model. I find it to work better for FM especially. I added a small AM antenna and it improved reception. I must mention we are in a dead zone for reception so this radio is great as I get AM stations.
PROS
Works much better then old model. Nice size Even though power supple is larger it does not get hot.


CONS
Only that power supply that plugs into receptacle is larger then older one. But again it does not get hot.12857

Great Radio and Superb Quality!
Reminiscent of the days when I had a GE SuperRadio, this CCRadio-EP PRO is a real gem, excellent tuning ability, compact size with great sound.
PROS
Ability to tune in those distant AM Stations with great clarity. FM band is wonderful too, but I'm mainly an AM Radio listener. Lighted band is a nice addition.


CONS
None that I have found, the ac adapter is a bit wonky, but absolutely something I'm willing to deal with to have a radio of this quality.


BEST USES
Indoors, Outdoors, on the porch relaxing, great to have dual power so you can use it anywhere.... Well pleased!

Great radio! Great price!
As if I needed another radio from CCrane, This one caught my eye so I just had to have it. I'm very pleased with my purchase and it works Great. Stations on AM and FM come in great and all I have to do to get good reception is either turn the radio or antenna and they come in. Tuning and volume work great and I've put 4D batteries in it and leave it on all night to a quiet music FM station and the light makes a great nightlight. Easy to carry and not heavy for me at all even with batteries. I'm not sorry for buying and will keep my eye on your site to see what else I can get someday.
PROS
all I can think of is it's a great radio and works great for me. Glad I bought it.


CONS
The only Con I can think of is the power supply is kind of big and heavy. Would like to see a built in one on the radio and just a power cord to connect it to AC. This is a minor issue and doesn't take away from the radio's greatness.


BEST USES
Just about anything. Camping, household, travel, gift, etc.

Excellent Radio
I purchased this radio to use at a remote mountain cabin in the Sierras and it has not disappointed! I was amazed at how many more stations were out there that my old radio could not pull in. I have read some complaints about the tuning but haven't had any issues thus far. The fine tuning knob really makes a difference on distant or weak stations. So far I can listen to local stations in addition to some of the big boomers from Los Angeles and San Francisco during the daytime. At night there is a whole new universe out there. the most distant station I have received in the short time I have been using the radio is KOA, 850 in Denver Colorado.
PROS
Very sensitive radio, great for pulling in weak or distant radio stations. Has very good FM reception as well


CONS
Regarding the radio itself there are only two features I would have preferred. The ability to receive NOAA weather forecasts and alerts would have been helpful. Also I really like a digital reading of each station so that I could return to weaker stations with greater ease. But this is one heck of a radio!


BEST USES
Anywhere you need a good radio, especially if you spend time in remote areas with poor reception.

Back to Basics
This is a basic AM/FM radio with two add- ons that really make a difference with AM reception. C Crane's adjustable Twin Coil AM antenna and a wide/narrow switch helps bring in distant stations especially at night. It's new DSP tuning is quirky until you understand the trick in tuning AM stations, tune slowly! When the radio finds the station it locks on to it. FM tuning is spot on. If you use headphones or connect the Pro by the headphone jack to amplified speakers stereo reception is available. Sound is very good using the separate bass and treble controls.
PROS
Great DXer on AM stationsGreat soundSimple controlsNice dial light for low light tuningBatteries and AC wall wart power supplyFM tuning is spot on plus stereoExternal antenna connections on back


CONS
Quirky DSP tuning on AMPopping noise on startup my GE Superadio II also does this

Improved
The mish-mash of mixing products that plagued the original EP on the upper half of the dial has been fixed with the chip that the set is based upon. This is in reality, an analog dial tuning digitally 10 KHz at a time across the dial...there is no off tuning capability. This set will not receive properly in countries that use 9Khz separation of stations. A quirk of the chip is soft muting that is not as forgiving as the soft muting on the Crane Skywave radio. The radio is very sensitive, as sensitive as the rest of the 100mm antenna sets, but weak stations are muted. The result is that weak stations cannot be turned up to a comfortable volume. This is especially true on headphones...the speaker delivers a slightly greater volume. On headphones, listening to a weak station with ordinary ambient noise such as would be found outdoors would be problematic. That said, the set is a much better performer in an urban setting with a number of local am radio stations than the original EP.
PROS
Sensitivity, selectivity, tone controls, immunity to mixing products. Good antenna peaking with the provided control.


CONS
Soft muting not sufficiently forgiving.


BEST USES
Long distance am reception

ANALOG TUNING
CCRadio - EP PRO AM FM
PROS
NICE LOOKING RADIO, REALLY LIKE THE LIGHTED DISPLAY ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT AND THE FINE TUNING FOR AM IS GREAT. SOUND OF THE UNIT IS VERY RESPECTABLE. RECEPTION ON FM SUPER. A QUALITY BUILT RADIO.


CONS
AM TUNING IS NOT SUPPOSE TO BE MUTED. I REALLY ENJOY THE MANUAL TUNING OF AM STATIONS. THE ORIGINAL EP RADIO WAS MUCH BETTER THAN THE NEW UNIT IN SO FAR AS THE TUNING GOES. I AM AN OLD TIMER RADIO DXER AND THE MOST OF THE FUN OF TUNING AM IS BEING ABLE TO HEAR WHEN YOU ARE APPROACHING A STATION.


BEST USES
GENERAL LISTENING AROUND THE HOUSE AND GARAGE. GREAT FOR BEDSIDE TUNING WITH THE LIGHTED DIAL.

Disappointed in this radio
Big disappointment compared to my first two cranes. Tuning for distant am signals is practically impossible to move your hand that small amount. When you finally zero in on signal they fade and disappear unless you re tune and after a few mins it's back to fading. Oh my power cord plug seems to be separating where the two pieces fit together.
PROS
Sound quality on nearby fm. stations


CONS
Does a pretty poor job of pulling in distant am signals at night which is when I use it and when am signals are easiest to get


BEST USES
Close by fm listening

High Current Use by this radio?
I ordered the latest C Crane EP Pro only to find that it would only run on brand new fullpower batteries or the AC supply. Batteries that would power any of my analog radios would not work in the EP PRO. I tested the EP Pro current use with an ammeter current draw was very high.... much higher than a true analog radio. I returned my EP Pro radio and I'll stick with myC Crane EP .version.
PROS
Not any given the issue i noted


CONS
Bad design? Poor Quality Control?


BEST USES
As an ACoowered plug-in radio

Very hard to tune with soft muting and false images. Not as sensitive as other radios I own in the same price range
PROS
Unit can be returned


CONS
Poor tuning. Stations appear above and below desired frequency.


BEST USES
Leave on one strong channel and don't tune around.
