No lyric reading! Is this a ‘make your own lyrics’ karaoke machine?
Random fact of the day:
Karaoke: Originally meaning “without/empty orchestra,” it is a combination of Japanese “kara” meaning “empty/bare-handed” as in “karate”, and the “okee” sound from the first syllable of “orchestra” as pronounced by Japanese.
This looks like a rice cooker that does karaoke. That’s very Japanese.
perfect size to take to the beach or park when you want to annoy those around you.
A couple of great reviews (4.6 out of 5.0) over at amazon
this will sellout. this price is awesome.
I had to comment on this when I saw this.
I bought two of these at Rite Aid for $15 after christmas.
I had to return one the same day because the power cord would not stay plugged in.
The second on SHORTED and was SMOKING after about 3 days. I can’t say it was on fire, but if I hadn’t been home, who knows what would have happened, it was really hot.
Just remembering that my kids were playing with this gives me chills.
I believe if you plug it into a TV with a Karaoke disc, then it will have a readout.
Looking at the pictures, I can’t see where the readout would be. I believe if you plugged it in to a TV or monitor of sorts you would get the readout there, but not on the machine itself. I have a similar (older) Memorex karaoke machine but it has a small B&W screen in it that shows the lyrics. I love mine, it works great and takes a beating. I often hook it up to an external speaker to get more volume at parties though, the internal speaker isn’t that loud. Not sure how loud this one would be.
