Left by Linda on 07/01/2022

Quality. A very good player and extremely well made.

Will purchase speakers for it soon.

Left by Andy on 18/08/2021

Very well made. Solid machine, and good features. Might upgrade to wireless mics soon though.

Left by Wendy Hemerton on 29/07/2021

Good machine but i really think the songs should be sold all together on a memory stick.

It is so much hassle having to change the discs constantly, I have not got the patience to rip them all myself nor do I understand how to do it.

Think you need to add these to your shop to help the older generation like myself.

Left by William Shoster on 24/07/2021

Great product and great service. highly reccomend.

Left by Davie Petreson on 15/07/2021

Extremely pleased with the quality of this player! Very sturdy and easy to use. Also a lot of very cool features.

Highly reccomend!

Left by Zoe Flint on 07/07/2021

Not very impressed with my order, one of the microphone leads arrived damaged. I called up and they arranged to send me a new lead, which wasnt all too great as i had to wait 2 days when i needed it that night. 

Thankfully i managed to find a cheap microphone from the shop to use for my party, still alot more hastle then it should have been.

Left by Arron Falkner on 01/07/2021

Great karaoke player! does everything i wanted and more. spent aa good 2 hours or so putting all the songs onto a memory stick which was so worth it in the end!
Left by Stefan Longem on 25/06/2021

Left by Colin Price on 01/05/2021

We bought this machine from Vocal-Star Australia as an upgrade to our old basic set up - and we love it. It is so easy to set up and to use and we have been enjoying the fun family time it has created. We laugh at the scoring and love the fact that we could load our songs on to USB and SD cards. All in all - a great option for us - we are very impressed and recommend this machine highly. Love it!!

Better build quality than most machines as it has a full metal casing. Some other have a plastic fascia on the front.

Chrome buttons are a nice touch too. Looks great

Brilliant - would've given 5 stars but unfortunately the plug was broken so we had to change it.

Apart from these it works great.

"The microphones are too quiet compared to the music?"

This can be easily solved by adjusting the music & microphone levels, please follow the steps below…

1. Turn the microphones volume up to full using the remote

2. Turn the music down to volume 6 (this is roughly 50% of max volume)

3. Increase the volume on your TV, you may have to turn it up higher than you normally would to allow for the reduced music volume level on the Player.

Hopefully your microphones should now appear much louder compared to the music, you can keep adjusting the music, microphone & TV volumes to get the perfect balance between all three. Also ensure you are holding the microphones close to your mouth

"I’m getting an echo / delay / latency on the microphones?"

This is a common problem that is one of the pitfalls of using a HDMI connection for karaoke. HDMI is a digital connection and digital connections take time to process, meaning when you sing into the microphone it takes time for the karaoke player to convert the sound to digital, send the sound signal to the TV, your TV then processes the sound and sends it through the speakers, this means there can be a slight delay from when you sing, to hearing your voice come back through your TV speakers. This delay is exaggerated if you are running a soundbar or surround sound system as it just adds processing time. It's impossible to remove the delay completely, but there are some things you can do that will help...

1. If your TV has the Red/White/Yellow RCA inputs, connect to your TV using this method (cable is included), as this is an Analogue connection, and will process the sound much faster.

2. Check to see if your TV has any sound modes on, such as surround sound, stadium mode etc. These sound processing modes cause havoc with live vocals, so go into your TV settings and ensure any sound effect modes are switched off

3. Turn the microphone echo all the way down using the remote

4. Some modern TV's are aware of the issue and allow you to reduce the delay by the second. 

5. To overcome the issue completely, you will need to purchase a speaker that connects to the karaoke player, bypassing the TV.

"I'm trying to play an MP4 or AVI file, it just says unsupported format?"

Vocal Star players will not play MP4.  It will play most AVI formats, but some still will not work depending on how they have been formatted or what type of AVI file they are.

"I'm trying to play an MP3+G file, but its not working?"

Please make sure all of your MP3+G files are in "unzipped" or "extracted" format before trying to play the track.

"The scoring feature isn't working?"

The scoring feature will only work on CDG discs and not DVD discs.

"How to get tracks from a DVD karaoke disc onto a USB stick"

1. Insert the DVD into a PC

2. Copy the files from the DVD to a separate folder on your PC

3. Delete all files except for the .VOB file

4. Then copy the VOB files to a USB/SD Card

A good tip is to create folders on the USB/SD relevant to the disc (Karaoke Hits 1>Disc one etc), that way the files will be in the right order and the song books will still be effective.

"Ripping Discs to USB/SD Card Issues with Karaoke Machine"

Please ensure that you are using a CD+G Disc.  DVDs and MP3+G discs will notwork.

We suggest the max size USB stick to use is 16gb.

Creating a Song List from karaoke downloads you have purchased online

When you download tracks and put them onto a USB/SD, it can get difficult to select the song you require when there are hundreds of tracks.  On the VS800 and VS1200, you can create a songbook to make it easier.  Insert the USB/SD containing MP3+G tracks into the Karaoke Machine and press “song list” on the remote and follow instructions.  When you insert the SD/USB into a PC,your songbook will be there as a text file.

"How do I connect to Bluetooth?"

It’s simple to connect to Bluetooth.  Firstly, please ensure the items you are looking to connect have their volume turned up for the media you are playing(making sure by listening to it on the device first).

Press the Bluetooth button on the VS-1200

You will hear "trying to connect to Bluetooth" to indicate your Vocal-Star is looking for a connection

On your device (phone/tablet ect) search for devices to connect to

Select the device and you will be ready to go

A good tip is that you can control the volume and turn it up louder from the device connected to the Karaoke Player.

"There is no picture on my TV"

Please use either a HDMI cable or RCA Cable – not both.

If using HDMI, press the “source” button on your TV to find the HDMI channel

If using RCA cables, ensure your T.V is switched to AV viewing

"How do I connect Wireless Microphones?"

Within the wireless microphones package will be a jack to jack cable.  Connect this to the back of your wireless receiver and into either of the microphone inputs on the front of the karaoke machine.

"How do I connect my machine to speakers?"

Active Speaker

Active speakers generally have a plug and do not require a separate amplifier. To connect to these, please strip the yellow cable from your RCA leads (red white and yellow cables).  Ensure the yellow cable is connected from the karaoke machine to the TV.  Connect the red and white cables to the active speakers.

"When I am connected to Bluetooth, the words do not appear on the TV"

Bluetooth only transmits sound.  Use the mobile, tablet, laptop or whatever device you are connecting to the player with for the words.
