Granny’s AdvicE: 7 Things to Consider when buying a Karaoke Machine

Are you looking for a new Karaoke Machine? Not sure what to look out for?

Choosing a good Karaoke Machine for yourself can be a little tricky if you aren’t aware of the components that are needed to make a Karaoke fun and entertaining.

You might think that song list, microphones, and speakers are the only important thing but a monitor plays an equally huge part in a Karaoke machine.

So, to help you out, we have compiled a list of things that you should consider when selecting the right Karaoke Machine for yourself.


One of the most important factors to consider when buying a karaoke machine is the portability. If you are going to be picking your machine a lot and are planning to take it to different places then make sure it is easily portable.

Song Source and Player Compatibility

Another important factor to consider is the karaoke format that your machine will use and if you can connect to your smart devices like iPod, laptop, mp3 players, etc.

Nowadays more and more people use these smart devices to play their favorite songs and if your karaoke machine can connect to these devices easily then you would find that you have a larger song database. Also, it makes it easy to connect to different devices and makes it more useful.

Ease of Setting up

Most of the home karaoke machines are easy to assemble and disassemble and can be easily set up in just a few minutes. However, make sure that you buy a karaoke machine whose instructions you understand and who won’t take too much time to be properly set up.

Built-in Screen

A lot of karaoke machines also come with a built-in screen which makes it easier to see the song lyrics and eliminates the need to attach your karaoke system to a TV or a separate monitor. Make sure you go through a lot of karaoke machine reviews to ensure that the one you’re getting is fitted with one.

Some karaoke systems come with TFT LCD screen which helps in better image contrast and allows a user to see the lyrics more clearly.


A microphone is an important part of a Karaoke system and many systems provide you with one or two microphones which can be helpful when there is more than one person singing a song. Having two microphones is important if you want to sing duets but if you have an input jack that can take another microphone then this is not a compulsory feature.


Another essential feature that you must consider when buying a Karaoke machine is the speakers. A powerful and strong speaker will determine how much fun everyone is having, if you have a low power speaker then you won’t enjoy the Karaoke much.

Recording Options

This is another feature that you should consider when selecting a Karaoke machine. If you want to record a song, just connect your USB, sing and record the song and then play that USB on a music system. Not all karaoke systems offer this feature so check and choose the one which offers it to you.
