Are you interested in how to set up a karaoke system so you, your friends, and your family can have hours of fun singing your favorite songs? Here's what you need to set up your own karaoke system; one that's adequate for small events and won't send you to the poorhouse.
The first thing you've got to decide is what the media type is that you want to use. The karaoke CDG disc system is one of the most popular systems, but more and more professionals are turning towards MP3 and other digital formats. That's because these types of files can easily be stored and played right from a laptop using hosting software. Talk about convenience!
The karaoke system components you need include 2 speakers, 2 speaker stands, a mixer and amp, a Karaoke CDG player, 2 wireless microphones, RF converter, a Color TV that is a minimum of 19", a disk storage system, and all the necessary cables and accessories.
Choose a CDG player that's a name you can trust. Quality is worth a few extra dollars. Make sure it has the features you want, but don't pay for features you will never use.
When it comes to your mixer/amp, you don't need a huge mixing board. It's not a necessary item for karaoke. You need a mixer with separate channel controls and a minimum of a 7 band graphic equalizer, plus the power to drive your speakers.
When it comes to amps Fender, Berhringer, Peavey, Mackie, and Samson are just a few of the companies that make good quality affordable amps.
You need to pay attention to your speaker choices. They are what will be responsible for the quality of your sound. You can have the best components, but if your speakers are poor quality your sound quality will also be poor.
