Karaoke CD+G (MP3+G) Touch Screen Karaoke System

The Karaoke Revolution might be new for some people, but it's actually been around for many, many years now.

The father of the first Karaoke Machine Mr Shigeichi Negish produced his prototype way back in 1967, he sadly passed away (January 26th, 2024) at the grand age of 100 years in Japan, but his legacy to the world will live on, he is making people happy everyday with his revolutionary karaoke device originally called the "Sparko Box".

Pioneer Electronics made Karaoke popular in pubs and clubs in the USA, Europe, Japan and Australia during the 80's and 90's with the large 12" (LP sized) Laser Video Discs Systems.

That was long before the birth of DVD's in 1996 and karaoke was never really popular on this format, it was more popular on the predecessor to DVD which was VCD (Video-CD), but the picture quality wasn't good for movies but for karaoke purposes it was acceptable and very big in Asian markets.

Though long before even VCD and DVD there was another format for Karaoke which ran side by side with Laser Disc for a while until eventually winning out over cost and physical size, and that was the CD+G Karaoke Disc format.

CD+G made Karaoke main stream, as the discs cost the same as audio CD and could be played in much cheaper CD+G karaoke machines and these factors alone made karaoke creep into more homes the world over year after year as it became more affordable as the technology grew in popularity.

The CD+G Karaoke format delivered on a standard sized compact disc, to display the karaoke lyrics required a special Karaoke Machine or Player which could see the encoded +Graphic lyric component also on the disc, this was then outputed to one's TV so you can sing-along. 

These CD+G discs could also be played on a standard Compact Disc Player but as they didn't have a video output or the tech to read the +G  section on the disc it was just played as an standard audio disc.

CD+G is still probably the worlds most popular karaoke format as is still used today, new songs are released weekly on this format even in a modern digital world of YouTube Karaoke Streaming and host of Karaoke Apps.

See it's managed to evolved overtime into a digital format of it's own, called MP3+G available to be downloaded instantly and played on Karaoke Machines, Laptops and KTV Touch Screen.

Just think of it as normal MP3 audio track but with a second file being the lyric +G (for Graphic) track, which is played at the same time displaying the lyrics on your device (TV, Laptop or KTV Touch Screen).

See you can simply convert your existing library of Karaoke CD+G discs to MP3+G Digital Karaoke Songs, which then could played on a Laptop using special software like PCDJ Karaoki which is popular with Karaoke Hosts and DJ's who run shows and pubs, clubs and venues for large groups.

And for the home user, you now had the easier option of having thousands of songs purchased on CD+G discs over many years all on a single USB Memory Stick or SD Card.

MP3+G saved you time swapping all those discs, looking for that song your friend wants to sing, as all you had to do was select the song you wanted from the on-screen TV menu. Most Karaoke Machines (like the Sonken MP4000) would even produce a song book for you offering an even easier way to playback the song by entering in the unique song number for each karaoke track.

It's 2024 now and our customers are once again now even looking beyond the humble yet reliable Karaoke Machine to that of a self serve option so that anyone can simply walk up and select a karaoke track and start singing.  

A modern day Karaoke Jukebox if you like, but they want to bring their existing Karaoke library along on the journey and why shouldn't they, having invested hundreds if not thousands of dollars in cultivating a Karaoke song library.

The good part is that this is indeed now possible with the arrival of the Karaoke TV (KTV) Touch Screen System.

The KTV Touch Screen System can either be used with your existing sound system replacing your karaoke machine providing you have microphone inputs on your sound system else you will require a Mixer like the ACNOS Mi-30s to provide this element, which comes with 2 Wireless Microphones so will simple sits in between the KTV Touch Screen and your Sound System and your off and singing.

Else we have the KTV Touch Screen packaged with 3 different KBEATBOX All-In-One Portable Karaoke Systems which offer audio output powers ranging from 100 to 200 Watts (RMS) complete with Music and Vocal Mixing Capabilities and 2 UHF Wireless Microphones as standard.

Two of the KBEATBOX units (CBZ-16GN and CB-56GD) also allow up to 4 Wireless Singers at the same time.

The KTV Touch Screen can even output to a larger TV via HDMI cable so even more people can see whats going on and join in on the fun!

Plus, you get the added benefit of using your exisiting MP3+G Karaoke song library via the WinLive Pro Karaoke Mobile 2.0 App, (pictured below) along with access Karaoke Streaming Services, YouTube Karaoke and any other Karaoke Apps all from the one Touch Screen device.

It's amazing piece of tech, a modern day hybrid karaoke solution offering the best of yesterday and today. Its uncomon that you can bring your past tech along with you when you make an upgrade these days, but CD+G Karaoke has managed to do just that, reborn as MP3+G in today's modern digital world, and that in its own right will ensure it will live on for many years to come.

And most importantly it gives you access to over 100,000 songs which have been produced over the years for CD+G/MP3+G as there are songs in this domain which cannot be found anywhere else especially Australian and New Zealander song content.

Plus you can get many different languages now for karaoke via Karaoke Apps and even YouTube really opening up your selection of songs all awaiting you in the Google Play Store.

The ultimate karaoke system is now available for you to own and enjoy!

15 Years Between Models - Sonken SA-700 and SA-710

Time almost stood still for this model; it was the very first model in the series from Sonken Australia.

The Sonken SA-700 Karaoke Mixing Amplifier and it was so popular and reliable over the years that little did it change in looks and functionality over its 15 years of being on sale.

The SA-700R was released a few years later, the R was for the included Remote Control which enabled you to make adjustments for music volume, microphone master volume, source input A or B and change key.

It had one very unique feature over other amplifiers at the time apart from the very reasonable selling price and that was key control, so you could step up and down the key of the song being played to suit your singing style and a lot of singers gravitated to this model for this specific feature.

But it was limited to only two RCA Stereo Audio inputs for a Karaoke Machine to be connected for the most part of entire existence, until the last version was released, which was the Sonken SA-700RB the added B in the model number was for a then ground breaking audio streaming technology called Bluetooth, and yes that was a big deal back then, streaming audio from your phone was in the early stages back then compared to today everything has Bluetooth almost by default.

Today I would call the SA-700 a classic model, in-fact I call it the legacy model from where everything else in the Sonken range has grown from.

It still amazes me when customers call up asking about this model their friend has which they are still happily using it today, we still get referrals asking for this model. 

With many customers coming back today having decided it’s time to upgrade to the now Sonken SA-710 model given the SA-700RB was retired a few years back, passing on the old working model to another family member to get them started in the world of karaoke singing.

For Sonken it was just time for a change, almost forgotten about given its success, why change something that’s doing so well, and of course Sonken had released other models during this time, like the SA-720, short lived SA-730 and the 2018 release of the SA-760 with pioneering 4.3" LCD Screen and HDMI Input and Music and Vocal Record feature and its replacement the current model the SA-767 which took the brand  up another level once again.

Plus, Sonken also launched a budget range of Karaoke Amplifiers (KA) which has spanned 7 models now with the current incarnation the Limited Editon KA-13. This series on its own was incredibly popular, feature packed and not only priced well but performed just as good and two models even featured the vocal and music recording feature back to USB which a feature which was generally handled by an expensive external recorder.

But that brings us to the long, long awaited Sonken SA-710 model which was released with little fan fair in mid-2019 we didn't even know it as coming, it just arrived!

It's fair to say though that many people in upgrading have jumped the replacement model altogether to take on something more adventurous like a SA-720 or SA-760/767.

So, the sales of the SA-710 initially where slower than the previous model it replaced as a result.

Many of the sales came from first time customers to Karaoke Mixing Amplifier market who were opting for something which was a step-up from the entry level KA series.

The SA-710 Karaoke Mixing Amplifier has been well received and the feedback from our customers they are more than happy with the features and performance it delivers. Sonken currently have 3 speaker options which suit the SA-710 the CS-450, CS-600 and CS-612. 

The first two have a 10" Woofer with the CS-612 which houses a 12" Woofer, both the CS-600/612 models feature four 3" Tweeters and are presented in a premium black timber case with rose gold trim with a black grill and is capable of 350 Watts (RMS) power input.

With the slightly smaller CS-450 (pictured above) which is presented in an all-black finish producing 300 Watts (RMS) from its 10" Woofer with two 3" Woofers, and all three options are very nice and capable speakers.

If you’re looking for a beautiful bass response even at low volumes, then spend a little more and pick either one of the premium speakers being the CS-600 or 612 there is a noticeable difference even between these two. 

I have had the pleasure of having all models at my house for several months starting with the CS-450 to get a true user experience. It’s fair to say each on their own are great, but when you move from one model to the next model is when you truly notice and very quickly the difference between the CS-450 to the CS-600.

It’s like a totally different musical experience but it’s the same amplifier (SA-710) but it’s a richer sound and the bass response it like WOW and difference is there at low volume long before I start turning up the volume and that’s when you start saying OH WOW.

Even in our showroom this is more than evident as we do a demonstration not changing the volume or editing any of the EQ settings other than switching from CS-450's to the CS-600's, and I must say customers are really enjoying the sound of the CS-450's but that flick of the switch is more than noticeable when they hear the difference and that gets them thinking really fast can we spend a little extra.

And then the CS-612 comes along, this model is not always available and there was a gap of 6 months where you couldn't get them, and we only had the other two models. 

It's slightly larger in its physical size and weight too but this speaker just lifts the experience to another level again and I can't stress enough it’s not just about volume, yes which is phenomenal but the sound it produces is WOW.

The bigger timber boxes give more bass depth and you can feel it, literally with the air that comes pumping out the rear vents and if you can place them against a wall with around 20cm gap in-between and you'll notice an even different experience with the air pumping, its surreal and you can do this with the CS-600's as well.

Really impressive, the clarity the highs and lows and yes, the deep bass it delivers is outstanding and I have seen other brands offering similar specification speakers for near $1500 more is a true testament to Sonken in continuing to offer outstanding performance at an more than reasonable price.

If money is no object then choose the CS-612 especially if you have big open room, if you’re in a standard size lounge or family room then I would personally stretch to the CS-600 over that of the CS-450's but only because I know how great they sound and admittedly the look of the CS-600 Series is top self.

 The rose gold trim and high black gloss grill especially went over very nice with my wife, with its modern stylish looks they will suit any decor, not one to normally comment on my sound equipment, apart from frequent "Hey! turn it down", she noticed them and said, oh they look really nice! 

Bonus, I just got the tick of spouse approval :)

So then we come full circle back to the future with the SA-710 now with a 12 band graphic equalizer so you can really fine tune the music highs and lows for each speaker, where as previously you had only a 3 button low, mid and high volume control, simple yes but compared with the SA-710 you can really hear the difference and in my opinion is a welcomed change on this model.

You now have many different source inputs including the standard stereo rca connections along with Optical Audio Input for your smart TV, that lets you grab the audio from the TV and feed it through the SA-710 so you can sing-along to whatever you are watching on the TV.

Bluetooth is also included and that opens your SA-710 to connect to a Smart TV, Phone, Laptop, or Tablet so again you can stream the audio. You also have a dedicate sub-woofer output though personally if you’re getting either the CS-600 or CS-612 speakers I would save your money you don't need it and if you’re thinking of getting the CS-450 and adding a Sub-Woofer just spend the money and  go for the CS-612's if they are available, you won't regret it, it will save you money in the long run because if the sub doesn’t have at least a 10" woofer and is 150 Watts your just wasting your time.

Sonken had a sub-woofer with those specifications, but I never recommended them for either the SA-710, SA-720 or SA-767 models especially if you had the premium Sonken speakers like the predecessor to that of the CS-612's the CS-800's or FSK-10's.

The sub-woofer was better suited with the KA Series as then you could really appreciate the difference the sub made and it boosted the output provided by the CS-450 Speakers sold with the KA Series.

The SA-710 certainly looks different and that’s first major thing you seen especially when looking back at the SA-700 it still has the Key Control feature and the basic remote control, but to get down and dirty with all the settings and adjustments you'll need to get up and off the couch and use your fingers to fine tune the sound just the way you like it.

It may have been 15 years in the making and maybe the model number should have been SA-715 but either way the SA-710 has delivered beautifully, building on the legacy that the SA-700 spent years in cultivating. 

Enjoy everything the SA-710 has to offer it's an instant classic in my book.
