Introduced in 1909, the Fireside was intended as a slightly lower priced replacement for the Edison Standard, but was sold concurrently with it. It employed the motor of the Edison Standard mated to a a slightly different, compact upperworks.
Rather than support the mandrel shaft in a mandrel bearing, the Fireside mandrel itself spun on a shaft, much in the style of the later Amberola machines. The upperworks featured two-four gearing, and a maroon baby morning glory horn. A K reproducer is commonly seen.
