The model of a memristor-based oscillator with cubic nonlinearity is studied. The considered system has infinitely many equilibrium points, which build a line of equilibria in the phase space. Numerical modeling of the dynamics is combined with bifurcational analysis. It is shown that oscillation excitation has distinctive features of the supercritical Andronov--Hopf bifurcation and can be achieved by changing of a parameter value as well as by variation of initial conditions. Therefore the considered bifurcation is called Andronov-Hopf bifurcation with and without parameter.
