Introduced in early 1913, the Amberola V employed well made, heavy duty components, in contrast to the series of Amberolas produced after the great factory fire of 1914.

A large flywheel on the mandrel shaft helped to stabilize rotation. Pinning for an automatic stop was threaded into the carriage rod. A telescoping arm connected to a Diamond A reproducer.
