My husband is a man of many talents. Besides being a professional photographer and videographer, he is also a professional Elvis impressionist. He has performed for about 25 years, doing hundreds of shows and even appearing in casinos and night clubs in California and Texas. He is quite good, if I say so myself. In fact, he has a show coming up in June that he is doing for a family friend at his retirement party.
So my husband uses a karaoke machine to practice his songs in between performances. We had a machine that just died on us, and hubby decided to try the GPX Karaoke Party Machine. It is a fairly nice machine, featuring a 5 inch black and white monitor and auto voice control. He hooks it up so that the words of the songs will appear on our big screen TV, which is much better than using the small monitor of the machine itself.
Other features of this unit are: CD+G, CD, CD-R Player, auto voice control, omni-directional microphone, full-range speaker with dual high-frequency speakers, MP3 ready, RCA stereo/composite video input and output, adjustable controls for master volume, mic 1 volume, mic 2 volume, mic/music balance, auto voice control and echo effect, 2-digit LED display with multiple LED indicators, headphone jack, A/V cable and AC power cord.
This machine would be a lot of fun at a party. My husband uses it strictly to practice his music and keep his voice in good shape. I sometimes use it just for fun. It's not a bad machine, not professional but good for practicing music and just having fun at gatherings.
