Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this karaoke machine to upgrade a much older model I had from The Singing Machine line of karaoke products. I bought this particular model mainly because I liked the pedestal set-up and the iPod docking feature as well. Overall Pros: It looks very sleek and stylish. It is easy to perform because of the pedestal-style set-up which is very similar to anything you'll find at a karaoke bar. The color screen, although small, is bright, clear and the color is fantastic. The ability to play any CD (karaoke or standard) and have the ability to change the pitch higher or lower based on your vocal range is amazing and unlike anything I've ever seen on any other karaoke machine. The system is lightweight, easy to assemble/use, and has a good sound. Overall Cons: As I mentioned in my 'pros', being lightweight is good in some regards, but can be bad too. If you're hosting parties and there is any drinking, rowdiness, etc., I could easily see any number of things getting broken rather easily. The cordless microphone cuts out often and it has nothing to do with battery life. The feature to sing 'over' prerecorded CD's sounds great on paper, but it really breaks up. The quality is nothing close to what you get with a true karaoke CD, so my advice is to ante up and buy karaoke CDs. Finally, this unit does not fit iPhones in it. Now I was able to connect my iPhone to it, but it doesn't totally fit in the slot that is designed for an iPod. Any iPhones or iPod Touch models aren't going to fit in here perfectly and you've gotta jimmy the connecter built into the karaoke machine to get your iPhone to 'dock', but it works. Just make sure you turn it on Airplane mode to eliminate interference. Looking forward to using this more. It was used for 6 hours straight last Saturday at my son's 13th birthday party. All the boys and girls loved it and used it either for singing or listening to music all night. I'm also anxious to see how well the video feature works to record your own music videos.

Good and stylish

By peach from Seattle WA on 12/26/2008


Cons:

Poor Microphone Quality

Describe Yourself:

Novice

Pros:

Easy To Use

Best Uses:

Home Party, Events

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I got it for Christmas present for my boyfriend. He seems to love it. It is pretty easy to setup and use and has a stylish look comparing to other karaoke machines available. One thing that I noticed by playing with it only for one day is that the quality of microphone isn't good. We are thinking of replacing it with a better one. Otherwise, so far so good.
