Comments: Zvezda is the Russian word meaning Star, playing fine, at night I like especially the illuminated . Operating this set is pretty strange like driving a car in UK: volume control is the right !! button, shifting the middle button switches the bands, rotating the middle button is the tuning, the left button controls the bandwidth/tone. Schematic available.

Jean-Luc Fradet has the French pendant the Excelsior 52 on his page - maybe the Russians were "inspired" by this French set.
