Great concept, poorly executed by jwalchill
Remote was unbearably difficult to use. Was really excited, but had to return.
Not so good by Troy
If you are looking for a decent Karaoke system this is not it.
Hard to operate and the wi fi is so weak you have to literally place it next to your modem. Sound quality is also terrible.
Best Party Starter and Bluetooth Speaker! by SoundEnthusiast
I love my Singing Machine Home! It's stylish, fits into the decor of my home, and sounds terrific. For the price, it easily meets or exceeds my $299 Bose speaker. The karaoke functionality is a great way to start a party and there's tons of selection for anyone to sing their favorite song. Subscription packages are pretty affordable too. Good value.

This is the best Karaoke ever, I was pleased from the sound that the speaker put out. it is worth every penny.
Not ready for the world! by Kingsford
DO not buy this...at least not until they work out all the bugs. System would not authorize music selections. replacement machine wouldn't connect at all to the network. Apparently due to system not being compatible with doe routers!!!! Takes several days ti maybe resolve. Super frustrating and disappointing. Doesn't make for a good christmas gift just giving someone problems.
DONT BUY IT - technical issues by BrentwoodMAN
I bought 3 of these one for my family and 2 more for gifts as they looked cool.
When each of tried to set it up in 3 different households same problem occurred in each house. Spent about 30 mins with one tech guy - who was nice but could not fix it - asked to speak to a mgr and she admitted they are having this issue and cant figure it out and cant resolve it.
She suggested going to the MANUFACTURER directly and see if they could fix it. Don't waste your $$ or your time on a big doorstop. I have a household full of kids this weekend and this was supposed to be the main event - nice!
Great sound, karaoke function easy, portable! by richgoat
Bought it over the weekend mostly for the karaoke function. What attracted me to it: small, bluetooth, act as a speaker, portable.
For streaming music via bluetooth: Sounds great, easy setup, fills room with sound. Sounds better when it's in something like a TV stand or bookcase so the sound can bounce.
For Karaoke: Small so it's easily portable. Can use two microphones, wide selection of music. Setup your account on the web, as well as playlists (easier than typing with remote...). Good payment plans, use it for a weekend or pay for a whole year!
We brought this over to a friend's house to hang out, and it became a huge hit! Everyone loved it. Love the fact that you can unplug the HDMI, power, and put it in a bag. Gone are the huge standalone systems.
If you're thinking about this item; GET IT! You won't regret it. I use it throughout the day to listen to music.
The only negatives I have is that it had issues connecting to my wifi once in a while. Also froze up about 3 times during 2.5hrs or so. I figure the software is still early in its life, so it'll only improve. Overall the interface on the unit is clean and straightforward. If you are using the karaoke, I recommend adding to the playlists online.
Awesome home karaoke and bluetooth speaker! by DaveGA
I've had my Singing Machine Home karaoke and bluetooth speaker for a few weeks now and I'm very pleased with my purchase. The design and appearance of the Home speaker is very sleek, the unit has a very modern finish and looks quite stylish on my shelf.
In terms of functionality, I plugged in the unit and hooked up and HDMI cable to send video to my tv. I was immediately presented with an on screen menu to select bluetooth speaker functionality or karaoke service functionality.
Via bluetooth I began playing various songs from my iPhone and was quite impressed with the sound quality of the Home. This unit has sound quality and volume output far beyond any other bluetooth speaker I have formally used. I could use this speaker for a party at my house and easily provide loud enough tunes.
I then switched over to the karaoke side of the machine, and encountered what I would describe as an interface that is 90% there but needs a good polish on the remaining 10%. The karaoke side of things requires an account for the Singing Machine service. It was a bit slow entering in my information for wifi using the supplied microphone/input device. I would recommend using a computer to create your account , and then just logging into your Home machine with the account you created on a computer. Once logged in the variety of song categories and music browsing selections was quite broad. I was able to instantly find a ton of modern hits and clicked on them to play. After a very short buffer, music started to play and on screen images synced to the music began displaying on my tv, shortly there after lyrics were displayed and the karaoke party began! I had a few friends over and they all had a blast taking turns singing along with the machine.
Bottom line.... This is a very innovative product with great looks and even better sound quality. Once they refine the software and smooth over the little interface quirks this machine will really be a one of a kind karaoke machine. If you are looking for a bluetooth speaker, this is by far the best sounding and most powerful one I have come across and is incredibly easy to use.
Really cool. Need more Korean Songs :P by fchoi923
So I bought this for my kids and so I can play BT audio, but the Karaoke function is addictive! I had friends over and we had a blast all night (we didn't even notice it was 4am and we were still embarrassing ourselves and laughing). When we were done, I didn't have to put it away like my old Karaoke monster - I just left it out and it's so beautiful in my living room. Sound is surprisingly good. I am not an audio expert, but my kid has a Bose wireless speaker in his room and this is just as good but cheaper + the Karaoke function. I love it. I wish the selection of songs was a little bigger and more Korean and Asian friendly. I mean.... they have Gangnam Style but it would be cool to have more Kpop.
Gorgeous!!! by JohnyFlynn
This product looks like it was done by Bang & Olufsen, but I can actually afford it. Sound is quite good (especially for $299) and Karaoke function is so easy to use. I installed it in my living room and I no longer have to hide my party machine after each time I use it. It just becomes my stereo. Kudos to Singing Machine. I did notice that during setup, the unit can't be far from the router. You have to be within 15 feet or so, or the signal is not good enough, but if you place it close - no problem.
