Karaoke USA GP975 Review 2016
The Karaoke USA GP975 is a professional karaoke system that at first sight seems as any other karaoke player. However, while taking a closer look at this machine, one can see that it is quite impressive compared to many alternatives we have reviewed.
The first impression of this big box of a karaoke system is that it is big, heavy and seems pretty sturdy and durable, as it has reinforced edges with hard plastic. On the top is the opening for the DVDs and CDGs. On the top at the front, there is a bright 7-inch monitor that displays lyrics from a CDG. It also can be used to watch any DVD discs. Around the screen, there are control buttons. Below is a USB port and a SD card slot, and other audio controls together with inputs and outputs for connections.
Below the controls is a fairly big and impressive speaker. The sound is loud and clear, and one of the best built-in speakers on any karaoke system we have reviewed.
On the back is a holder for a smartphone, and two microphone holders.
When it comes to features and functions, the Karaoke USA GP975 has it all, making it one of the most versatile karaoke machines on the market in 2016.

With all these features, the karaoke machine can do a lot of different things. The record-to-USB function is useful as you can convert your songs on your CDG disc into MP3G files. That way, you can play karaoke songs from your USB port as MP3G format, instead of using the CDG discs. The benefit is that any disc that is frequently used is spun around and physically moves, which eventually will wear it out. By using the MP3G files, your CDG discs will have a longer life cycle than if you solely used them.
With support up to 4 microphones (2 are included), you and your friends can all sing along to the same songs. You can sing duets, or you can even have some as backing vocals, as each microphone has its own individual volume control.
By having support for Bluetooth and AUX input, the GP975 can replace your other media players. You can use the built-in speakers to play music from any phone, tablet, computer or mp3 player.
However, if you want even more power than the built-in speaker, or want a bigger display than the built-in 7-inch screen, you have video outputs to connect to a television, entertainment system or a more powerful speaker system.
Basically, the Karaoke USA GP975 is a powerful and professional karaoke system that is fully equipped with all the features you need, and more. If you are looking for a high quality karaoke system that has everything you need built-in, doubles as a media player, and is versatile enough to connect to any external setup you have, then you should really consider the GP975. The average rating on Amazon is 3.8 out of 5 (rating as of 14 May 2016).
