The Akai Karaoke KS800 is a karaoke machine with a bright 7″ LCD display in front, and has several control buttons and adjustments. While Akai is known for its quality karaoke equipment, they only have a few products that are meant for individual and home use.

The key controls enables users to change what music is playing and how it is played. The built-in automatic voice controller changes dampens the original song’s vocal and amplifies your own to make you the lead singer. Other audio controls is echo and balance.

Hook this karaoke player up to a television, and you can have the lyrics on both the player and on the television. If you need more sound than the built-in speakers provide, you can hook it up to a more powerful sound system to give the complete karaoke experience for your karaoke party.

The Akai Karaoke KS800 seems to be a decent karaoke player with a good amount of features. If you are looking for portability, there are better alternatives. The same goes for professional use. However, if you want a karaoke machine in your living room that can be a stand-alone unit that both children and adults can use, then you should consider the KS800. The average rating on Amazon is 3.9 out of 5 (rating as of 9 April 2016).
