Safar Radio Roma was manufactured in two versions which differs only for the type of tubes used: European tubes, American tubes.

The left knob operates the power switch / volume control and the right knob has two simultaneous functions: tuning and the sensitivity;  the rotation drives the tuning dial pointer and the axial movement activates a switch that lets you choose between local broadcaster and far broadcaster. By pulling the knob toward oneself is selected the lower sensitivity and the radio is set to receive the local broadcasters.

The set published in this page has the American series tubes and is in original conditions.
