I am looking into putting together a Karaoke System for my wife for Xmas. I got a Hisense 65" H9F, SVS speakers and sub and a very old Denon AVR-2803 receiver. I read it is not a good idea to connect karaoke to a good AVR/speaker system, as the speakers could be damaged. But this is for my wife's use only, so she will definitely keep the mic volume at a comfortable level.

Any ideas of how to make this happen would be appreciated. Thanks!

Probably best to find a forum for karaoke enthusiasts for this, but we get questions from time to time regarding the inability to use a mic with the AV system. So you want something that will allow you to mix both the mic and music source, and that component will plug into your AV system.

If I knew anything about them, I would have recommended one. I actually don't know for sure if any karaoke forums exist. I just figure if there's a forum for Ford Courier enthusiasts, there has to be at least one for karaoke fans, for which there are assuredly far more numbers. I'm pretty sure a search engine will find one. :)

Building a high quality karaoke system is a matter of selecting the correct components and determining their objectives. You must decide if the system is for commercial or recreational use. You must also determine how much money you have to invest to meet the goal of owning a karaoke system. The age and level of talent of the users, the place and the purpose of the system will guide you in the selection of quality components. You can make or break your system by spending too much on non-essential elements and not spending enough on the components that generate quality sound.

Step 1
Start your system with a multi-format disc player. The music industry is transitioning from CD and CD with graphic products to MP3 and other computer programs. A multi-format disc player allows you to handle all formats during the transition. The Vocopro DVG-808K first-world multi-format multi-player allows you to play various formats and mix professionally on two channels. Acesonic, CAVS, Pioneer and RSQ are companies that have quality multiformat players.

Step 2
Select a karaoke mixer-amplifier. The essential features to look for are a key changer, a vocal effects function to add echo and reverberation, several microphone inputs and at least 300 watts of power. The BMB DAR-800 400W 4 channel multi-channel stereo karaoke mixing amplifier has all these features and a great reputation among karaoke professionals. BMB mixers-amplifiers have a high quality and are extremely durable. The Martin Ranger Pure Sound 55II - 600W Professional Digital Stereo Echo Mixing Karaoke karaoke amplifier is a good alternative at a lower price.

Step 3
Consider your place and your need for mobility before investing in speakers. If you plan to move from one club to another, a pair of JBL Eons, either 12 or 15 inches, will serve you well. They are light and offer excellent sound. If you are going to use the system in one place and want high-quality sound that does not remove the hinged doors, try a pair of Bose speakers. Peavy and Mackie are worthy of consideration, but they are heavier to move and take second place in sound quality than JBL or Bose.

Stage 4
Invest in a wireless microphone system. If you plan to use the system in a place with adults, a Shure SM58 wireless microphone is the best quality available. If your show will include many less mature singers, there is a good set of wireless microphones manufactured by the Vocopro UHF Professional 4-Channel Wireless Microphone System that are good enough for karaoke, but would not be found in a professional stage .

Step 5
Connect the system to a large television screen. Any flat screen television monitor will allow you and the singers to read the words of the songs while they sing. Have a monitor for the singer and other monitors for the listening audience. Most places will have televisions to which you can connect with a video cable.
