There was a time when karaoke machines for home users lacked a lot of the features commonly seen in pub or professional units. Technological advancements thankfully have helped bridge this gap and a decent home karaoke machine today can perform at par with any professional machine.
The Features To Look For In A Home Karaoke Machine
Component Vs Self SufficientPriceAdditional Capabilities
Because the home karaoke category includes a wide range of products, you can’t simply tag all plug and play machines as home users only or all component machines as professional only. However, most top end plug and play units and lower to moderate component units usually fall under this bracket that is governed mostly by the price range.
Anything that is over expensive quite naturally should not fall under the home karaoke category. Unless you are a diehard fan of karaoke, refrain from overzealous expenditures when you can get the same performance for an affordable home solution.
Does the machine play all kinds of CDs and DVDs? Can it accept two mics at once for duets? Does it accept a flash drive to play tracks downloaded from the internet? These are extra features that add to the cost but also help expand the uses of the machine.

Well, my DD2 is now 8 years old...
Today is her birthday. She's had a blast all day. No chores, no schoolwork... Birthdays are holidays around here. She got to pick lunch (hot dogs) and dinner (chicken strips, tater tots, corn), and dessert (grasshopper pie, homemade). She's gotten balloons, and money (from relatives who sent cards, $75 total!), and an MP3 player. We have her a new wireless microphone for her karaoke machine, which she's thrilled about.
I can't believe my "baby" is so big now!
