So a musician friend of mine has a Filipino friend who would like to set up a home karaoke system. My friend asked me if I could make a recommendation which I can't because I don't have a clue as to the various playback systems available let alone Philippine content. So here is the IM he sent me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hey tom, hope you are well. Was wonderin. What would you suggest to someone who wanted a simple karaoke setup that works with your home system, if any? One that has multiple language options and preferably one that has hdmi. I have a Filipina friend who was looking at this Magic Sing product that has options she likes but it sounds kinda cheesy to me. She likes it because it has 2 wireless mics and some Filipina language options. Thanks

Well now Tom, several questions at once..

1) Home theater speakers are not going to work. They will blow due to the harsher environment of "Live" sound. One screech will do it. Purchase real speakers.
2) Cheap laptop with DVD and HDMI out solves that.
3) Any good mixer.
4) Filipino songs are everywhere on the internet.

Several home system are discussed here, use the search button.
Some of the Yamaha systems are quite good. Mixer/app/speaker in one package.

As a pro karaoke host and a Filipino-American, I’ll consider myself familiar with filipino karaoke.

I’ve been to many karaoke parties and most of them just hate the magic-sing system. Delay issues were one of their complaints (among others). Almost all the songs are not in sync with the wipes. It's so hard to sing in sync with the music due to a lag between the time you sing the lyrics and when you hear your voice exits the speaker. :roll:

Stay away from this product. It’s nothing but a toy for beginners. Embarrassing to say the least. But I was told there’s a solution to eliminate the delay. Don’t use the hdmi cable. Use the a/v output, connect audio to your sound system, composite cable (rca) to tv.

Magic-sing is worthless imo, poor quality, very tinny electronic sound synthesizer and the ever present annoying flute melody guide. Yikess!

Anyway, back to what kind of player: Cavs super cdg player or Acesonic kod-6000. The goto store is ace karaoke, from super cdg songs, speakers, or the complete package karaoke system. 'hope that helps. https://www.acekaraoke.com/filipino-kar ... uQ6oYjwbIU

Thanks guys, that was helpful. I assumed that the filipino woman was aware of the risks of using live mics over a home speaker system but it's not a good idea to assume anything so I included that little caveat in my reply along with the caveat regarding Magic Sing.

If it were me I would probably just use a laptop with a few plug-ins (i.e. limiter for the mics so I wouldn't have to add a pair of ugly PA speakers and a reverb/delay unit .... hmmm autotune might not be a bad idea either :lol:) using YouTube videos but I know shyte about karaoke playback systems other than the machines we used to use to test our CD+Gs on. One was a portable, one was a cheapy standalone with built-in speaker (Memorex?), one was a VocoPro, one was a JVC with MIDI out (for experiments with S.M.A.R.T. Karaoke) and one was a CAVS machine. As far as I can remember they were all a pain in the arse The VovoPro probably was the most consistent but it wasn't perfect. Anyway thanks again.
