Electrohome EAKAR300 Review

Bottom Line

The Electrohome EAKAR300 is a good, basic karaoke machine for home use. It can play both CD+Gs and MP3s from an attached player, and it offers a variety of features, including Automatic Voice Control (AVC). Users say the speaker is powerful but that the single microphone is cheap and interference-prone. This machine doesn't include a built-in display screen, but it's easy to hook it up to a TV set to see scrolling lyrics.

Setup and use

Simple setup. Most owners describe the Electrohome EAKAR300 as very easy to set up and use. One Amazon.com reviewer says it took only three minutes to connect the cables for audio and video input and output. The only complaint we saw is that the connecting wires aren't very long, so you'll need to keep the karaoke player close to your TV set. As for sound quality, reviewers say the EAKAR300's small built-in speaker delivers plenty of power -- almost too much, if your neighbors are easily annoyed. However, some users say the microphone is underpowered and picks up interference from nearby radio signals.

Durability

Occasional problems. The reviewer at KaraokeMachineCritics.com gives the EAKAR300 4 points out of 5 for durability, saying that while "my personal experience was pleasant," a few owner reviews complain about lemons. We did indeed see several reviews at Amazon.com that say the machine either arrived broken or broke soon after purchase. One common problem is that the sound cuts out unexpectedly. However, the machine is backed by a one-year warranty, so if you get a lemon, the manufacturer will either repair it, replace it or refund your money. (Unfortunately, the choice of remedy is Electrohome's, not yours.)
