Selecting The Best Karaoke Machine For Your Home

Karaoke Player

A quick internet search for a Karaoke Player will produce a lot of different models and choices. The fact is, they can all perform the same functions, so it’s best to choose one based on how well it performs in certain sets of songs. The first thing to do is decide where you will be using your Karaoke System. Some karaoke players are meant to be used outside, on the porch or deck, whereas others are built to perform better inside, such as in the living room. A few of the karaoke players mentioned below are perfect for outdoor use, while others tend to do better indoors.

The first model we’ll look at is the Yamaha RV-powered unit. This portable unit plugs right into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter port and then connects via a standard 3.5 mm audio cable to your home-based karaoke system. While the unit itself is quite tiny and lightweight, if you like to have a larger speakers setup that can produce great bass, the lack of portability might put some people off. On the other hand, those looking for more portability will find that this makes their Karaoke player perfect for those who enjoy going to karaoke competitions or just want something easier to bring along.

Next up is the JVC Kiddoo Karaoke Player JV, which plugs into a USB port and is perfect for those with a smaller home entertainment system. The JV also features a microphone input for those that love to speak into the microphone, and it even doubles as a karaoke machine by enabling you to play music from your iPod or portable music device. For speakers, you can opt for the same two small speakers that power the JVC Kiddoo, or you can purchase a set of five or six. In my experience, the audio quality of the mini jukebox mode is very good, but you may have better luck with your speakers if you are looking for superior sound.

Finally, for those with home-based karaoke systems that need to be portable, the Logitech Karaoke Displays USB is perfect. This plug-n-play unit plugs right into your home theater system via a USB port and displays song lyrics and play lists on its small screen. The display is just about large enough for you to read, and it also includes an external volume control that makes it easy to lower the volume when needed.

If you’re considering buying one of these units, keep in mind that most do not include the microphone necessary for Karaoke. You will probably need to buy this separately from the karaoke machine. These days, however, many manufacturers offer microphone pre-packs sold along with their Karaoke systems. If you don’t want to buy the separate microphone, consider getting an extra one to use with your karaoke player. That way, you can practice singing and dancing without stressing out about missing a bad beat!

In short, there are a lot of great options available today in the types and features of the karaoke players on the market. Shop around, check out the various prices and narrow down your choices based on your specific needs. Then start shopping for a new home-based karaoke machine to set up in your home!
