Artisan Radio said “It was somewhat difficult to eliminate the hum from the AC power line, but I finally managed to get rid of most of it; the C Crane runs on batteries, so it does not have that particular problem (I can’t remember if it also has an external power connection – if it does and you use that, it would likely have the same problem as well….There was even discussion here about converting it to mono, but I personally wouldn’t touch that unless it’s for experimentation only.”
Geeze,if you really compared it to a CCrane,you would know it has an AC adapter and has absolutely no hum problems. Converting it to mono is super easy and causes no issue with its certification. I added a switch to a CCrane to switch between mono and stereo,works great!
However,I did not see that much difference in range so I use it in stereo,likely because most car radios switch to mono reception upon weak signal. I have 3 in service among several other brands…
