Hi...I just don't have time to research products myself.  Need an
answer in the next couple of days (after that, please don't answer).

Want to get my wife a karaoke machine.  Considerations:

1) Price: <$300, hopefully around $200
2) Features I want:
- it needs to have it's own screen, or the ability to output to 2 tvs
- it needs to be able to output to 1 or 2 tvs
- hopefully can support 2 singers (ie, 2 mics).  
- probably stands tall?  I dunno.

3) Compatibility - I have no idea how people buy karaoke disks...dvds?
 laser? cd?  Anyway, I want to make sure I'm getting a system where
these are widely available and hopefully not picking the system with
the most expensive song format.

If there is a site that compares these things, answers all these
questions, just point me to it, that's good enough ... but the site
should be unbiased, and up to date...kinda like

Sorry, since I'm obviously not in the know about these things, if I've
left out an important consideration, please please let me know.

Second, in terms of pricing - if there's a good machine that's over my
range but available on ebay for my range, please let me know that.

A great site to find all your karaoke answers is

Here, you will find numerous Karaoke Jockey, home karaoke singers, and
even professional karaoke singers that can point you in the right

They also have links to karaoke stores and sites that you can buy
equipment off of....or they will point you in the direction of some
good stores.

Also, they can tell you what the best kind of discs are, where to get
the discs, etc. etc.

I believe is a good site...and is an american site.  They
also sell custom CD+G's (which is what you will need to play in your
karaoke machine).

I bought my karaoke machine from Best Buy (I think that is a branch of
future shop??)

I got it for $150.00 CDN (I think, it was a while ago).  It comes with
one mic, and has a screen built in to it.  I believe that I can also
hook it up to other devices (just look for the connections at the

Mics come pretty cheap to....if you are planning on singing for fun
only, you can ususally get them from 10 to 20 dollars at most stores.

I hope that helps :)
