It's the perfect way to create joy through music this holiday season with hours of entertainment for friends, families and coworkers. The Home 2.0 has improved Wi-Fi performance, enhanced sound quality, and extended battery life for the mic-remote. The Home 2.0 is $299 and available for pre-sale now at SingingMachine.com for Christmas delivery. Home 2.0 will also be available for purchase on Walmart.com and Amazon.com later this month.  

Home 2.0 delivers room-filling sound as a Bluetooth speaker by day, and endless entertainment as a karaoke entertainment system by night. When the mood is right, Home 2.0 turns into an on-demand, Wi-Fi-enabled karaoke machine. It plugs into your TV via HDMI and connects to the cloud wirelessly. With one click, you have instant access to Singing Machine Play™, a platform that streams more than 8,000 HD karaoke music videos. Singing Machine Home 2.0 comes with a wireless hybrid Mic-Remote that makes it easy to navigate the Play platform on your TV. Users can also create their play queue online at home.singingmachine.com. Home 2.0 rethinks the traditional karaoke machine design by adding Bluetooth speaker functionality and featuring a sleek design that earns its place as a centerpiece in your home.

Soulful Audio
Designed with carefully engineered acoustics, Singing Machine Home 2.0 is packed with 2.1 omnidirectional sound, two tweeters and a pumping subwoofer for a full range of superior high and low notes. Home 2.0 easily fills any room with sound and makes sharing your music simple. It connects to any Bluetooth-enabled device to play your music whether you stream holiday music from Pandora or Spotify, or have your own curated collection of songs. Plus with a range up to 33 feet, you can roam the room with your smartphone, tablet or MP3 player, and play DJ without needing to walk back to the speaker to control your music. The speaker's minimalistic yet distinctive design includes a reflective bottom cabinet that mirrors its surroundings, making it fit perfectly into any interior.

Mega Karaoke Library
When it's time to turn up the fun, Home 2.0 is ready. Plugged into your TV, Home connects to Singing Machine Play via Wi-Fi and transforms into a searchable vault of your favorite karaoke videos.

Intelligent Wireless Mic-Remote

The smart mic has auto mute and unmute functionality, and allows you to select songs in advance to queue up a video playlist. You can also select your own avatar to see who is up next. Home 2.0 will play from day to night without interruption; no music management required. When the party is over, Home 2.0 stays put, and is your powerful Bluetooth speaker again.
