When you think of Karaoke System, one would usually think of bulky speakers,
an amplifier/mixer and a separate karaoke jukebox. While this is great if you
have space, having an array of equipment just to enjoy a singing session can
be a bit of a hassle especially if you have limited space on the TV console.
Moreover controlling the jukebox to search for your songs can be quite a task.
What if you have a system that does not take up too much space, is easy to set
up and is versatile enough to double up as a home entertainment system that is
sleek and stylish to complement your home design?
AC Ryan Home Karaoke System
|AC Ryan Gen 3
Introducing the fuss-free
AC Ryan Gen 3 Karaoke System.
Unlike conventional karaoke with chunky speakers and an amplifier, it comes in a
soundbar form with a base unit. This is the 3rd generation Karaoke system that is designed by a local homegrown company.
A sleek addition to any home
This unit would fit underneath the TV system you have. Say goodbye to bulky
amplifiers, speakers, equalizers or mixers as all these are already pre-tuned
to give you the best home karaoke experience. The unit has a sleek profile
with rounded edges in a greyish /black tone with a metallic grill that would
suit most home decor.
More than just a soundbar
Packed into this system is a combination of a pair of tweeters, and mid-range
and full-range speakers that are tuned to make you sound like a pro. Coupled
with rich and deep bass speakers, this sounder packs a whole lot more than
your traditional soundbar.
Paired with the Gen 3 wireless microphone with an operating range of a
whopping 30m, this 160W system packs a punch that would envelope small and big
rooms. Just make sure you are not singing in the wee hours of the morning, or
else you might just wake the whole neighbourhood.
Sing like a Nightingale
The Gen 3 wireless microphone comes with a Vocal Boost feature that can make
the softest voice sound spectacular. Expect crisp clear voices when singing.
Unlike conventional microphones, there is feedback suppression. This means you
will not have irritating feedback noise even if you are standing close or
pointing the microphones directly at the system.
Simply, pick up the mic and sing like a nightingale. You can also customise
the experience with adjustable bass, treble and echo for a professional
Simple is sweet
Who says a karaoke system needs to be complicated. This is a plug and sing
device without much tuning. Most of the tuning is already built into the
system. Simply turn on the system and take centre stage.
Connectivity to the system is also simple. Use a single connection to your tv
via the HDMI, Optical, Auxiliary, Coaxial or Bluetooth. As this unit comes
with an Optical wire, we connected it with the TV with ease.
Free songs on Demand
|Wide songs selection from Youtube
With the abundance of song choices on Youtube, you could simply just choose a
song on youtube and sing it. You could also control your song choices via your
phone on the Youtube app. Here is a selection of channels you can choose
- Powernote: Chinese and Cantonese Songs
- Sing King: English Songs
- Salut: Malay Songs
Alternatively, you could also use apps on phones for song selection. Gen 3 is
also compatible with other sources. You can opt for sources such as Popsical,
Touchscreen KTV players or even old Blueray or DVD players. AC Ryan also has
the option of a
Touchscreen KTV if you prefer the traditional route.
The bottom line is you do not need to pay more for subscriptions to enjoy the
A Bonus Home Theatre
The bonus of the Gen 3 is the rich bass from the Gen 3 Subwoofer. You could
make small adjustments to bass and treble, set it as your favourite preset EQ
and you are all set for movie night. No need for additional systems to enjoy
the oomph effect of a cinematic experience in the comfort of your living room.
|AC Ryan Powerful subwoofer
Due to the setup as a Karaoke system, the dialogues were clear, giving more
clarity and less reliance on subtitles.
Chill with tunes
If you prefer to listen to music instead of singing, simply connect to Spotify
on the TV or through the phone and play a tune to chill. It works for other
apps such as radio stations too. You can connect the phone to the Gen 3 via
Sing with the Family
|Karaoke with AC Ryan Gen 3
Last but not least, we enjoyed our karaoke night with the family. While
Covid-19 restrictions may have eased, these past 2 years made us realise that
staying at home is not so bad. In fact, with the Gen 3 in our living room, we
have another reason to order pizza, dine in and have a karaoke night!
|Let’s Sing with AC Ryan Gen 3
The promotional price of $699 for the AC Ryan Gen 3 is priced similar to a
mid-range soundbar. With the extra perks of a pre-tuned karaoke system, it
makes perfect sense to consider this over a standard soundbar. For those who
want a simple yet powerful and fuss-free system, AC Ryan Gen 3 hits all the
AC Ryan Gen 3 Karaoke System here.
