NTSC/PAL compatibility means you can sing along to discs from all over the world. The player offers VCD version 2.0 playback control, video intro scan, multipicture onscreen display, slow search (via remote), and bookmark with onscreen book digest.
JVC has done an interesting thing here in making this player compatible with CD graphics (CD+G), which some karaoke discs use and many standard CDs released in the late 1980s also used--only back then, there was no way to see them! (Chris Isaak's 1985 debut, Silvertone, is an example of a pop disc bearing CD+G content.)
Karaoke-specific effects like vocal masking and vocal replace, digital echo (with level control), and three surround modes (Dance Club/Hall/Stadium) make you sound like the professional you wish you were.
The player includes two microphone jacks, so you and your friends can tackle all those great duets you used to have to go to a bar to sing.
The DVG-9000N is karaoke-ready with a front-panel .25-inch microphone input--just plug in and sing along with your favorite CDs or dedicated karaoke CDs and DVDs. The unit is compatible with DVD, VCD, SVCD, CD, and MP3-CD-R/CD-RW.
Other features include Cinema Shuttle, nine-step programming, one-track/all-track repeat, 10-key direct track access, and a remote control.
