To get started we will provide a quick overview of the magic karaoke microphone and how it operates. This handheld microphone connects via RCA cable to your TV or stereo audio and video inputs. It connects just like a DVD Player is connected. The "all wireless" models have a base unit that connects to your TV or stereo instead of the microphone. There are thousands of songs built into the microphone and to play them you just enter the code for the song that you want to sing. The music background plays, and words come across the screen for the singer to follow. There are many features that include echo control, tempo control, scoring, games, and different background sounds to name a few. The Magic Microphone is a plug and play device that is "very" easy to operate for any person of any age.
Between 1999 and 2000 a Korean company called "Enter-tech" presented to the public a new karaoke machine call the "Magic Sing" karaoke magic microphone. This new electronics gadget revolutionized
the industry because it made the karaoke disk nearly obsolete for the home based market. The magic microphone contained the songs on a small electronics chip that was either built in to the unit or contained in a song chip that was inserted into the unit. Before continuing it should be noted here that the Filipino community in the United States and the Philippines has played a major role in the popularity of the magic microphone and karaoke in general. With their love for singing and music they have become the main group for introducing the magic microphone to America and all other countries around the world.
The first unit was quite large, black in color, contained 800 built-in songs (not on a song chip) and did not have the capability to work with a 2nd wireless mic. It was also packaged without a mic stand and could accept 2 additional song chips. Entertech no longer makes song chips for this unit.
The 2nd versions released came in black and silver with a round gold top and were also made by Enter-Tech. These magic mics contained the 800 songs on a song chip, a mic stand was included and a sub mic was offered as an accessory option. The only difference between the 2 units in operation was that the black mic could only accept 3 song chips and the silver magic could accept 4 song chips. Entertech no
longer makes song chips that work in this unit.
The 3rd version magic microphone was again made by Enter-Tech and was gold in color. It was a more streamlined version without the round head. Aside from the color there was no difference in operation when compared to the silver model. If you have this unit the standard silver song chips currently made by Enter-Tech will work in this magic microphone.
2002 - 2003: Enter-Tech released the silver magic mic IV in late 2002 and the vocoder V/C was included as the only additional feature. At approximately the same time 2 new companies emerged as makers of the magic microphone. Top Notch from China introduced the Magic Star microphone and Koritech introduced the Music Yes. The Music Yes or KT-107 could download 1 song with a small memory capability from the internet. It could also record your singing and then replay it. This was a big feature and the neat little mic was a popular alternative at a lower price. Koritech has now replaced the KT-107 with the KT-113 Handystar Model. It has a much larger memory capability and better sound. The Magic Star was inferior in sound quality to its 2 competitors but contained 2700 free songs! In 2003 another Chinese company emerged as "Prosong". It packaged 2 microphones together and became an instant big hit with its smaller, sleeker look and leather carrying case. Following the introduction of the Prosong units, Top Notch released the Music Star microphone set. With 2 microphones and 2700 songs it is also a very popular package.
In 2004 Enter-Tech released the Silver Magic Mic V with a new record feature and built-in 800 songs as the only difference to its number 4 model. The Enter-Tech and Koritech KT-113 stand as the units with the best sound quality, but the Music Star and Prosong brands are a better packaged value. All of this means that the public has many models and options to choose from and they can find what best suits there taste and budget. This unit is still available.
In 2005 Enter-Tech released its most powerful model to date. The model number ED8000Plus came with 2058 songs built in. This new version 8 magic mic featured two new enhancements: you can upload your recordings to a computer and burn your own CD. The Version 8 has a full 8 minute recording time compared to 6 minutes with the previous V6. This Entertech model dominates the industry with MP3 sound quality and a video input where you can play your own video background from any source. This super mic records yourself singing and instantly plays the songs back. Of course it still sports the typcial features of key control, tempo control, song reservations, scoring, and the vocoder function. This unit is still available in the Korean and Chinese languages. During this time Patent rights by Entertech were asserted and the Chinese made units were pulled off the shelves in the United States.
In 2006 Entertech introduced the ED-11000 "All Wireless" Magic Microphone that could hold 10 song chips and could even be used by DJ's. This unit did have a couple of issues; the main one being that when 2 wireless mics were used they would interfere with each other.
2007-Present: Entertech have refined their systems to an amazing all wireless system that has
improved sound quality, function, styling, ease of use, and a huge increase in long term reliability.
The new "ET" Models contain thousands of songs built in and 2 Wireless microphones are included! The
brand new ET-19000 is the most powerful unit ever introduced and is now available for review and purchase.
There are several terms used to describe the magic karaoke microphone. Commonly called the entertech, magic mic, magic sing, magic karaoke, magic microphone, and magic karaoke microphone. There are other terms used but these are the most common.
