The pedestal-style ISM1010 karaoke system with tower speakers.
The ISM1010 includes a top-loading CD/CDG player that lets you easily swap CDs so that your karaoke party doesn't slow down. Its iPod dock is compatible with video-enabled iPods (see left for compatibility) and it allows you to play back your entire music library (not compatible with karaoke lyric playback) as well as play video content on the widescreen LCD monitor.
The ISM1010 also includes an AM/FM radio with digital tuner, and you can sing along with songs on the radio using either the included wired or wireless microphone. Adjust the master volume and the mic volume to the right level and your voice will be combined with the radio through the speakers. You can also use the ISM1010 as a PA. This karaoke system has two microphones--great for duets. Other features include balance and echo control, auto voice control, and a headphone jack for private listening and previewing. It comes with a free CDG music sampler to get you started.

Tech TalkCDG: An acronym for Compact Disc plus Graphics, this is a regular CD with information stored on a data track simultaneous to music. In laymen's terms, CDG has a video output for simple graphics (not full motion video). In the case of karaoke, the graphics function is used to store song lyrics, and display the lyrics in synch with the music. In most cases, CDG software displays lyrics, which change color as they are to be sung. A regular television is all that is required to display CDG lyrics.
Echo: Produced by creating minor controlled feedback in the singer's voice, echo adds depth and resonance. The echo function does not affect the music.
Auto Voice Control (AVC): This useful function is used primarily during practice sessions while a singer is learning a song. Please note that the AVC function only works with multiplex recordings and not with standard audio recordings.
Multiplex: A Multiplex allows you to separate the vocals and music by using the balance control on your Singing Machine Karaoke System.
