Planning to host the most unforgettable home karaoke party at home to welcome the new year? There are a few tips and tricks that you need to know before you can get the best home karaoke setup for your beloved ones to sing their hearts out. Read on to find out.
1. Get your home karaoke setup right
Which karaoke speaker is the best for home karaoke? How do you even connect the karaoke amplifier? Setting up a home karaoke system can be a mammoth task if you are unfamiliar with the whole host of karaoke equipment. Let’s break it down to find out which are the essential items that you’ll need to make your party a blast.
One of the most important pieces of karaoke equipment that needs careful consideration is the microphone for singing. If you’re planning to have a mass sing-along session, you must prepare a few microphones so that there are enough for everyone to share. Are your singing buddies an active bunch who love to dance at a home karaoke party? If yes, consider a home karaoke system that can accommodate wireless microphones to prevent anyone from tripping over wires.
The best home karaoke setup should have a good karaoke speaker and karaoke soundbar that can amplify the best quality music and vocals of your singing buddies. Don’t just make do with the subpar sound quality from a regular speaker. Always choose to use karaoke speakers instead of home theatre speakers because the former is designed to support live singing and put your guests’ performance in the best light.
Next, select a karaoke amplifier, also known as a karaoke mixer, that will work its magic to combine audio inputs from different sources like that of microphone, instruments and other music players to produce brilliant singing performances. Karaoke mixers are packed with functions that can change the dynamics of audio. They are capable of augmenting the volume, bass and sharpness to enhance sound features that can make even an amateur singer sound like a trained vocalist.
2. Have a wide variety of karaoke music genres
The best home karaoke party must cater to the different tastes and preferences of every guest. This means your home karaoke system must be packed with a wide genre of music so that everyone will get a chance to participate in your New Year party.

The right props and lighting can easily get all your guests in the mood to sing along and feel less shy about showing off their vocal talent.
4. Do a trial run before the karaoke party
