Emerson SD511SC Portable Karaoke MP3 Lyric Player Review

Emerson SD511SCThe Emerson SD511SC is a karaoke player that has a 3-inch LCD display. While the size is quite smaller compared to many alternatives featuring a 7″, the lyrics are still easy to read when you are positioned in front of it. The player has a USB port that can charge devices and can be used for input. MP3 format is supported. It also has an SD card slot and a headphone jack output.

The aux input makes it a versatile music player as it can basically connect to pretty much any music device and use the speaker to play the music. So if not used for karaoke, it can be used as a speaker for your phone, tablet, mp3 player or computer. It has an mp3 player cradle on the top.

Other features include 50 built-in karaoke songs, clock, date, alarm and time functions. 2 microphones are supported and 1 is included in the package. For its price range, there are definitely alternative players that offer more features, versatility, higher quality, and more outputs. But for its size, it is quite lightweight and portable.

In this price range or slightly higher, there are definitely much better alternatives out there, such as a Singing Machine, Akai or Electrohome karaoke machine. They will give you more quality and features for your money.

However, for a child who does not require too much quality or features, just a simple plug-and-play karaoke machine, this Emerson SD511SC should be good enough.
