    When it comes to something like this, I'd probably just buy one. AFAIK, karaokes have been around longer then the desktop pc... I could be wrong!

    But, I would think there are plenty of karaokes out there that are excellent. It's like the game consoles... if they were more expensive to produce than a pc or didn't have better quality, they wouldn't be making them.

    It depends where it's for, example for a pub, those all in one things you buy wouldn't be any good at all.

    From what I recall, you need : big amp and speakers, mixer, VCD player / CD player, portable TV, mic.

    VCD player video out connects to TV, audio into mixer, mic to mixer, output from mixer into amp. I think that's right!

    The only good karaoke setup is a broken one.

    Yes, it would be for a pub/bar thats why he doesnt wanna go to say walmart and buy a cheap one. Looking at this site, I see their basically 2 ways to go. CDG player or more computer like with MP3's. Anyway you looking at it, he thought that it could be done for around $400. I'm going to tell him to " go fish ". Thanks for the input. And I knew some of you would chuckle, but blame ya
