1x Singrix Family Bundle Karaoke System (Refurbished)
Here’s a Fun Fact for You
Season 2, Episode 11 of The Simpsons features a karaoke scene, where a man named Richie Sakai sings a powerful rendition of Cher’s “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves.” Interestingly enough, the karaoke singer’s name is, in fact, a reference to the name of the show’s producer, Richard Sakai.
The Amazon price comparison is (surprise!) a highly inflated one, but when they were selling refurb family bundles on their website, they appeared to be asking $299 for them. This seems to be a legit good deal if you’re in the market for this kind of thing.
Just to clarify, there is only one mic (with the HIT! button) with this kit, yes? and that button only works on the input 1 channel? Looks like any reasonable corded mic would work with the second input.
And does anyone know if this thing has a line-level output? The write-ups and spec sheet only mention hooking up extra speakers, so maybe this won’t easily connect up to a mixer or external amplifier.
Maybe I am expecting too much …

Can I use my PA or other sound systems with Singtrix®?
Yes! Singtrix® can be used with a professional PA sound system. There are (2) audio outputs, so (2) speaker systems can be used at the same time, including headphones.
Note that higher quality sound reinforcement is recommended and will allow Singtrix® to perform optimally. Using Singtrix® with a headphone will give you the purest Singtrix® sound quality. Use this as a baseline comparison when deciding on which secondary speaker system to use.
Kind of vague, but maybe … as you might tell, I am debating internally about it. Last thing I want is (another) one-trick pony component that won’t work with other standard audio equipment.
@stolicat one mic included, vocal effects (and the hit button) do only work on the mic 1 input. I read in a review somewhere that some generic mics are not as sensitive as the official mic so come through with low volume.
All the documentation says two speaker outs but I’d bet on those 1/8" outputs being line level. The speaker systems for both this bundle and the newer party bundle look like they are powered on their own (and require their own power supplies). They also mention you can use the system for recording so that would also infer that those are line outs.
I’ve been on the fence on this one for a while now. I sang well as a kid, but became tone deaf in adulthood. I’m not ever going to be on American Idol or the like, but maybe if I could at least be filled with the illusion that I could sing, I might be able to fake it long enough to no longer be the person who can clear a room on karaoke night. Great price, but quite a few reviews saying there are some quality control issues… Decisions, decisions… Fuck it! (There’s another one for the bot to count for Carl…)
@ciabelle Are you sure you could sing when you’re a kid? Could it be you’ve always been terrible, but you’re an adorable kid brave enough to sing and everyone praises you despite your crackling voice? Not trolling, just work with kids and 99% sound terrible, but it’s still cute.
I did karaoke at a New Year’s Eve party a few years ago, it was a huge hit. Unfortunately I did not have the best setup, been wanting to get a SingTrix setup ever since then. Not familiar with this particular unit, but lowest price I have ever seen for any SingTrix product. I’m in! First purchase from Meh in a long, long time.
@UncleMel from what I’ve seen the singtrix box and mic alone (the orange part of this kit that’s the vocal processor and music mixer) sold for $209, but they don’t sell it outside of the party bundle anymore.
This thing seems pretty advanced but I think the market for people who will drop $300 for a home karaoke setup is pretty limited.
SingTrix?? And you missed the opportunity to make a joke about a, uh, ‘-trix’ as a suffix. As in DOMINATRIX? I mean what about some futuristic scenario where, like, this really mean dominatrix who has been so cruel to her sub who happens to be a mad scientist guy and then she stoops too low and insults his mad scientist creds (“Where’s my little whiny Stanford PhD now?!? What good is your little lab with beakers and Bunsen burners now when you’re all hogtied!?!”) and then he turns on her and converts her into a karaoke machine. SO much more meaning and layer compared to some embedded YouTube videos and actual product details.
