          Pros

          • Professional-looking and durable stand
          • Easy to use
          • 2 microphones
          • Demo disc included

          Cons

          • Not portable
          • Limited features

          The Akai KS808 Karaoke System is designed as a sturdy and durable stand with a front-facing 7-inch color monitor with audio control buttons below, and the insert for CD+G discs. There are holders on the sides for microphones and speakers at the top.

          This machine supports recording to MP3+G as well as playback through the USB port. It has a tablet holder that can hold your favorite tablet like an ipad or other device. With the audio control buttons you can control the volume, echo and balance. The player has 2 microphones included straight out of the box, which enables you to sing karaoke together with a family member, close friend or significant other. It is also practical for karaoke parties since more people can join the fun at the same time. Also included is a demo disc in CD+G format which has a few songs.

          Not being small nor portable may be a problem for some house owners who want something to put away when they are not using it, but the stand really creates a different atmosphere when you’re singing in front of it, as it gives it a much more professional performer feeling to the whole experience.

          Features:

          • 7 inch color screen
          • Supports playback/record for MP3+G via USB
          • Tablet holder
          • Audio controls (echo, balance, volume, digital)
          • Comes with 2 microphones
          • Demo CD+G included
          • Dimensions: 14.6 x 16.7 x 43.4 inches
          • Weight: 21.7 pounds

          To conclude, the Akai KS808 is a simple karaoke player that is easy to use with decent sound and screen. However, it may not be the best choice for someone looking for a portable setup, and it may also be a bit overpriced, as one would expect more features for the price. If you are looking for a player with a stand design that will look good in your living room, then you should consider this player.
