Introduced around 1908 at a price of $17.50, the Victor O was an inexpensive machine with a mahogany finish, although the cabinet was constructed out of a base wood stained mahogany, rather than true mahogany.

The special small embossed peach colored horn with red shadowing was unique to the machine. At least one Victor O horn has been discovered in a nickel plated version.

Most versions of the O employed a universal joint type tone arm in the style of Victor's Zonophone, although variations with more traditional tone arms have appeared. The O variation depicted in the lower picture makes use of a combination brake and speed control extending out the side of the case.
