Karaoke USA DV102 Review (2016)
The Karaoke USA DV102 is a karaoke player that also works as a DVD player. On the front, this machine has several controls and buttons: Power, disc/sd/usb, play/pause, stop, prev, next, mpx, mic vol 1, mic vol 2, echo, number buttons 0-9, eject, record/stop, recorded playback, repeat, navigation buttons, ok. There are also 2 microphone inputs, the disc insert slot, a SD card reader and a USB port.
The remote control also has several control buttons like power, eject, numbers buttons 0-9, program, goto, record/stop, record playback, disc/sd/usb, play, pause, stop, key-, flat, key+, fwd, rev, next, prev, volume +, volume -, setup, mute, return, display, enter, navigation buttons, subtitle, language, menu, slow, step, equalizer, a-b, pbc and mp3+g list.
On the back are several connections. Some are video and audio inputs and outputs such as AUX, composite video and RCA. This allows you to connect the machine to your television or home theater system and use it as a karaoke machine or as a DVD player.
With the AUX input, you can use this to play music from your music device and be able to sing together with the microphone, but you need an external speaker system. If you want to sing more people together, it supports up to 2 microphones. It also has individual microphone control for each microphone, so one can be lead vocal, while the other is backing vocal, for example. If more people want to join the fun at the same time, you will need microphone splitters and additional microphones, but then more microphones will be connected to the same microphone volume control.
With the USB port and SD card reader, you can play your digital files such as MP3+G (MP3 + Graphic) files and even photos in JPEG format.
This is a player with plenty of features, controls and connections. However, it does feel a bit cheap, and while many users highly praise it, others report some quality issues with it.

Basically, the Karaoke USA DV102 is a decent karaoke player that duals as a DVD player, has many features and is easy to use. However, it needs an external display and an external speaker to be a fully functioning karaoke setup. For the price, we would say there are better and higher quality alternatives out there, but this is not by any means a bad player. The average rating on Amazon is 3.6 out of 5 (rating as of 22 June 2016).
