Yes, yes, yes, and YES! The Singtrix SGTX1 Karaoke System is phenomenal! I’ll admit, when I saw it on SharkTank I was a little skeptical – you can’t always trust those TV shows, right? Well, this time I did, and it really paid off! And I mean paid off big time.
While you all know how much of a karaoke buff I am, you might not know that one of my closest friends (and ex band-mate!) is a local party-planner (surprise surprise, right?). Unfortunately, his previous karaoke machine finally bit the bullet pretty recently (R.I.P. k-man). I had seen the Singtrix’s SharkTank debut about a week before his machine died – lucky me, right? Anyway, this karaoke machine works better than any I’ve ever had – my friend was looking for something he could use for children’s parties as well as adult parties, and this hit the mark perfectly.
He told me he’s booked at least 10 parties so far just because of how awesome this Singtrix setup is. Literally, he called me up and said that those ten emails/messages/phone calls all started off with, “You’re the guy with that cool karaoke machine my son/daughter/friend was talking about, right?” He’s already made his money back off of it, which is a great thing because the extra microphones are like, fifty bucks – I was kind of bummed out about that because I know how fast you can run through karaoke microphones. But, it’s totally worth it. They’re amazing microphones and they’re still cheaper than a real microphone would be. You can’t beat it!

Singtrix SGTX1 Features
I had to get one of these Singtrix setups for myself after trying out the one I helped my friend order. I wasted no time in running it through my gamut of karaoke machine tests and my nieces and nephews really got a kick out of the gender bending feature! Basically, it makes you sound like you’re the opposite gender – I’ve honestly never seen so many little kids so enthralled with a somewhat gimmicky feature. Half the time, if they’re young enough, I don’t even play any music. They get all the entertainment they need just from this!
I took two microphones to my niece’s birthday party and even when they broke out the piñata there were still about twenty seven year olds lined up to play with this Singtrix SGTX1! I’ve never seen kids choose singing over beating the crap out of a piñata and getting free candy until this thing came along. I really can’t say enough about just how amazingly wonderful it is.
The audio quality is great also. I grew up in a family of musicians, and let me tell you this thing sounds like a professional speaker! Since I’m talking about professional things, let me tell you about the auto tune feature. I have never in my life seen a karaoke machine that can auto tune as accurately and as perfectly as this one does. It’s simply amazing. The 4 part harmony feature is outstanding too – I’ve never been able to sing “Fat Bottom Girls” correctly until I gave it a shot with the Singtrix. And that’s not to mention the hundreds of other vocal manipulators that come pre-loaded on this setup.
After I got the machine I unpacked it, got everything set up, and I sat on my couch for probably 2 hours playing with the different voices and features on this Singtrix. It took a little while to remember how to get to everything, but that was most likely just me and my terrible memory as opposed to the machine itself.
Singtrix SGTX1 Compatibility
Let’s talk for a second about the SGTX1’s compatibility. At times I can be one of the most technologically illiterate people you’d ever meet. So, when I found out that I needed to use my phone to play the music through the speaker I was a little wary. At first I thought you had to have an app to make it work. The app does cost money and I remember thinking to myself, “I just paid for the karaoke machine and now they’re gonna make me buy an app too? You’ve GOT to be kidding me!” Luckily, I realized that I could just use YouTube instead! After that it took me all of five minutes to figure out how to play YouTube songs through this machine. These youtube tracks sound fantastic AND it’s free. I’m telling you, you can’t beat this thing!
Singtrix SGTX1 Portability
I’m going to ramble for a bit about how light weight this is. I’ve reached that magical age of back problems I guess, so carrying that big speaker was definitely a concern of mine.
Thankfully, it’s incredibly light weight and easy to manage. I’m able to get the entire set up out of the truck in one trip! Usually I have to make one trip with one speaker, then go back and get another one, then go back and get the actual karaoke machine, and so on, but this is just so easy to carry.
Singtrix SGTX1 Versatility
Let’s talk about the nifty, decorative faceplate covers. It’s super easy to “redecorate” my karaoke machine now. This is fantastic for you party planners out there that have multiple events in one day. If my friend had a girl’s birthday in the morning and a boy’s birthday at night, he used to go around the edges of the machine and the microphone with pink duct tape for one and blue duct tape for the other. Now all you have to do is just pop the little face plate off the cover and swap it out. Pink for girls and orange for the other parties. It’s a very thoughtful feature that Singtrix decided to throw in there!
Let’s not forget my absolute favorite part of the Singtrix karaoke machine. I cannot tell you enough just how cool it is that I am able to play my guitar and keyboard through this machine. If I’m being completely honest, I’ll take this, with its built in auto tune, and take it to some of the local guitar gigs that I like to play at bars and community events. Since I can plug my guitar into it, no one suspects that I’m using a karaoke machine, or auto tune! In fact, after using the Singtrix karaoke machine at a restaurant near my house that does live music on Saturdays, the manager that was working that night said that I sounded better than usual (I’m a bit of a regular performer over there). I have to admit that hurt a bit at first, but hey – I sound better and my tips that night were well above average.
Singtrix SGTX1 Conclusion
With all of that being said, the Singtrix SGTX1 Karaoke System is by far the best karaoke machine/speaker system that I’ve ever used. It’s rare that I’m as impressed with a piece of technology as I am with this Singtrix karaoke unit. It’s a fantastic product and I would highly recommend it to any and every single person who is even contemplating buying it.
It’s a very worthwhile purchase – truly worth its weight in gold. If you have any doubts about getting this Singtrix karaoke machine, then I hope that I have successfully assuaged them, because this thing is golden. The SGTX1 is a phenomenal product from Singtrix and I am most definitely excited to see what they do next!
