What equipment do you need to get yourself a karaoke system for really unforgettable home parties?
You could start by realizing that making the right choice of karaoke equipment and system installation both require certain skills and a serious approach. For a true karaoke fan, it would be useful to keep in mind that building a high-Q home karaoke is not limited to buying a costly device full of features. So what are those elements a perfect home karaoke system consists of?
A karaoke system itself
Here’s the trick, a karaoke system you choose will “tell” you what equipment it needs to run perfectly fine. By choosing a professional set you get every chance to present your family with another way to have quality time together. The professional karaoke system is the heart of your home karaoke complex. Its primary task is to maintain the database of karaoke tracks and play them. In one of our copies, you can find information about the types of modern karaoke systems. However, if a professional device is what you want to get, make sure you choose relevant microphones, sound and video equipment. The point is, your new karaoke system can unlock its potential only with high-quality acoustics and microphones.
The right place
Before buying a device, you need to think about the right place for your karaoke complex to give it enough space to “sound.” Depending on the place, you will choose a piece of sound equipment that will be able to create the right ambiance. In this regard, a spacious room with good acoustics will make the best choice for your karaoke system. Also, make sure the room has a good Internet connection: the karaoke system will need it.
To ensure safe use, check the quality of the home electrical wiring. A karaoke room must have enough power outlets with 220 volts electric current. Please note that when connecting the karaoke system to other devices, all the devices must be turned off.
There are many devices that can improve the sound quality of your home karaoke complex. When choosing sound equipment, consider its quality and the karaoke room acoustics. For instance, for your karaoke complex, you use Hi-Fi or Hi-End home theaters set in stereo mode. On the other hand, since the home theater is a device designed for playing sounds, you can hardly use it for vocal performances.
In order to fully reveal the beauty of your voice and enjoy professional karaoke sound, we advise you to choose professional speakers purchased from well-known vendors. So, Studio Evolution karaoke systems run fine with Dynacord or QSC equipment. For karaoke fans seeking unique design solutions, a set of subwoofers and studio monitors from KRK, MACKIE or PreSonus will definitely make an excellent alternative. The best option for your home karaoke will be EvoSound — an affordable audio system from Studio Evolution including a soundbar and a subwoofer. It was designed specifically for karaoke performances and can boast of great sound quality.
Here are some other tips you can take from us. Don’t place the speakers close to the walls. Experiment with the location of your sound equipment to achieve the best results. To configure the sound frequency, use a 1/3-octave graphic equalizer provided by Studio Evolution. It makes it easy to customize the sound of the karaoke system to the room acoustics. Alternatively, you can use specific installers or call professional KJs for help.
To connect to professional home karaoke systems, you can use a monitor, a TV, and even a video projector. Since Evolution’s home karaoke systems support Full HD format, make sure you choose devices with the relevant characteristics to play videos. Full HD monitors and screens will make the best options when it comes to the complex using the Evolution Compact HD karaoke system. By using the advantage of the media center feature, you can watch your favorite TV shows and movies in excellent quality.
The choice of microphones is one of the most important steps of creating an A-grade home karaoke complex. The precision of sound transmission and voice quality depends on the type and model of the microphone you use. Wired microphones and radio microphones both make a good choice. Classic wire vocal microphones by SHURE, Sennheiser or Audio-Technica provide the best sound quality in tandem with professional karaoke systems. Those microphones can do without recharging and are quite convenient to use. The button on the microphone body allows the vocalist to turn the microphone off and on independently, and the wire length is enough for home karaoke parties.
A system with wireless microphones will be an excellent alternative to “old-school” wired microphones. High-quality radio microphones have long been popular with home karaoke fans. Digital wireless microphones have high sensitivity, noise protection, and wide frequency response. For example, Studio Evolution’s in-house developed wireless microphones are designed specifically for the best vocal performance as they rely on a digital technology that makes it possible for users to completely forget about audio delays, distortion, or any other troublemakers. The operational range of digital microphones SE • 200D is 40 meters: that’s enough for any home party. One charge is enough to get 10 hours of continuous operation. The displays on the microphones and receiver allow you to monitor the channel, volume, and battery charge. Moderns microphone systems are compact and well-designed. They will definitely fit your new home karaoke set.
You can customize each of the microphones and achieve the perfect sound of your voice using the parametric equalizer in the Evolution Lite2 and the 3-band graphic equalizer in the Evolution Compact HD.
A home karaoke is a separate “drawers” system that is quite easy to control. Studio Evolution karaoke systems come with a large, handy control console that makes it easy to search for songs, set all the necessary settings, record performances and play movies on the media center.
Alternatively, you can also use our special EvoControl (for iPad and Android tablets) and EvoNet (for iPhones and Android smartphones) applications to control your Studio Evolution home karaoke system. Add songs to your favorites list, enable vocal and voice processing effects in a single click/tap and enjoy your very own karaoke party.
A ready-made set that consists of equipment from different manufacturers will not always be the best choice able to fit specific conditions of your home. And that is why we advise you to build your home karaoke system carefully by choosing components with relevant specifications. On the other hand, there’s a better option: you can always get the right karaoke set from Studio Evolution.
Sure thing, creating a perfect home karaoke complex may seem quite difficult. However, if you don’t rush and pay attention to every detail, you will get a full-on modern karaoke system able to amaze you with a great performance.
