Memorex MKS-SS1 SingStand Home Karaoke System
Instead of relying on CD-G discs that play the musical accompaniment while displaying the lyrics on your TV, the MKS-SS1 instead connects to any mp3 player via a 3.5 mm line input, and will eliminate the vocal track in the actual song with their proprietary Auto Voice Control software. Unfortunately, the music itself becomes distorted as a result, and also there's no lyrics displayed to fall back on if you can't remember the words to a song. On the other hand, you'll save money by not having to buy CD-G discs, and users report that their kids love this product since it simulates a real mic stand. This design philosophy allows kids to get lost in the fantasy of being a star, as the music comes out of the two 4-watt speakers built into the base. In addition, interesting vocal effects like echo are a nice value-add, and it's also possible to connect a keyboard to jam out even more!
