How to choose karaoke machines
• The best karaoke system for you will depend on the space you have at your home, studio or office. It will also depend on how serious you take your karaoke hobby – are you throwing a one-off party or do you plan to sing every weekend?
• Perhaps the most convenient option is an all-in-one karaoke machine, which offers a mixer, amplifier, player and cables in a single package. Some are more complete than others, so always check to see if features like a microphone and speakers are included.
• If you’re working with limited space, you can choose magic microphones that connect to your laptop or HD television. These come preloaded with a song library, and you can upload more of your favourites with a USB port.
• Additional features to look for include personalised video displays, recording and playback modes, and echo features, among others. These are available at all price points.
