singing machine ism1030btWhile the two above are from Akai, the iSM1030BT is a product from Singing Machine, which is a very well known producer of karaoke equipment.

This player has a sturdy and durable stand with the main controls on top beside the 7-inch LCD screen, and has holders for two microphones on the sides. If you want to use your own tablet or smartphone, it has a universal holder for that as well. Behind the base of the stand is connections to hook it up to the tower speakers that are included.

Perhaps the big selling point in this machine is that it rips CD+G to MP3+G. By ripping them and playing the MP3+G instead makes your CD+G lasts longer since it does not wear down as fast with infrequent use. It can also record to MP3+G with your voice on it. Audio controls are AVC (Auto Voice Control), echo, balance and digital key control.
