Moderately priced and perfectly suited to quality enthusiasts, the Electrohome EAKAR300 is a karaoke machine with plenty of brilliant reviews. I really looked forward to reviewing this machine the moment I ordered it after reading some of its more positive reviews especially the ones on its coaching mechanism. So if you feel you can sing well and want to pursue this with full gusto then this may just be the thing for you. Otherwise it is a standard machine with input points for two microphones, a mp3 player, CD+G discs and more. The Auto Voice Control coaching system takes up the slack when your voice lets you down by pepping the track with prerecorded vocals so that you remember the next line like with actual songs. Add to this digital echo control and you get the richer fuller tone required for exquisite vocal performances. The top loading CD player can play multiple formats and it even comes with an auxiliary out for connecting with a speaker system and television.
Baring the lack of an in-built display the Electrohome EAKAR300 has every other feature necessary in a karaoke player. It also packs in a really loud set of speakers, which isn’t evident from its compact size. As for voice features, it comes with digital echo control, AVC or auto voice control that is more of a coaching system to help you sound better and remember lyrics. Ability to stream from CD, mp3 players, stream to a television screen and home theater system complete its other standard features.
Styled like a tiny drum, the Electrohome EAKAR300 is definitely portable. It weights hardly anything and even in the fully packed state, it is really light. As long as you have a television screen nearby, this karaoke machine can keep you entertained for hours. You will also need an AC power source so camping trips with portable generators will let you have karaoke fun.
Additional Buyer’s Information:
While the unit can take two microphones, it ships with only one so buy another spare along with the Electrohome EAKAR300 or two as a pair for the best quality. The speakers are also a tad bit loud so be careful when raising the volume up to full, some neighbors won’t like this.

A couple of reviewers did mention that they received lemons but the remaining 100 plus reviewers all praised its construction and reliability. The warranty mostly covers repairs and replacement is out of the question if it is past the one month mark so this is a little concerning. However, my personal experience was pleasant and I don’t think there is a design or technical flaw in the Electrohome EAKAR300, just some pieces are designed poorly.
Electrohome EAKAR300 Karaoke
If streaming to television, playing mp3 player tracks, CD+G are important in your checklist then this karaoke machine will surely get your heart racing. It can take in an additional microphone for duets and the AVC system works well in almost any karaoke song.
The AVC coaching mechanism impressed a lot and I don’t think this is present in any other karaoke machine on the market other than those marketed by Electrohome. Great for teenagers and children wanting to grow up learning the fine art of singing, affordable price tag and a decent performance with superior quality make the Electrohome Karaoke Machine an impressive home karaoke machine. The only negative thing we can think of at the moment for this machine is its loud volume that can annoy a few quirky neighbors.
