Orion 323 is part of a wide range  of Népszupér (People's super) models and differs from the other ones for the aluminium case.

This set can receive two bands: medium waves and short waves.

The left knob operates the power switch / volume control and the right knob has two functions simultaneous: tuning and the band switch; the rotation drives the tuning dial pointer and the axial movement activates a switch that lets you choose between medium waves and short waves. By pulling the knob toward oneself is selected the short waves.

The metal case, for safety reasons, is insulated from the chassis, looking at the pictures you can see the bakelite ring spacers which separates the chassis from its mounting.
