Pros & Cons
The Singing Machine SML-385 CDG Karaoke System is an attractive sing along music system with bright disco lights. The top-loading CDG player comes with 2-digit LED display, two microphone jacks with volume control. This system plays regular CDs as well as CD+G discs and displays scrolling song lyrics. The RCA-type A/V cable connects to any television to display lyrics, and produces quality audio and video outputs. It includes an easy to grip microphone and built-in speaker for clear sound/audio output. The system is portable, perfect size for small room or parties. The Singing Machine with disco lights has customizable controls for voice, speakers and echo.
However, the device produces not so good sound quality and is not worth the purchase as per some users. The Machine lacks an MP3 player port, is not compatible with any external music devices, works, or plays only CDs. It is also noticed that the music is uncoordinated with the lyrics when plugged to TV monitor. Some regular CDs do not work while singing along. Some units CD players and/or microphones did not work right out of the box and/or machine stops working after few months.
Overall, the Singing Machine SML-385 CDG Karaoke System with Disco Lights is an easy to use karaoke system with multi-colored disco lights which adds some fun and enjoyment in parties or otherwise. This machine is excellent gifting option and is enjoyed by all age groups.
