Many people are concerned about choosing a high-quality audio system, and today, we are going to tell you about the products by Studio Evolution – a master sample among acoustic systems for home karaoke.

Soundbar vs. Stereosystem
EvoSound Bar is a powerful home audio system of the new generation, designed specifically for karaoke: the clear and rich sound of live signing, tolerance to sudden voice drops and peak loadings. The Soundbar maintains the concurrent connection of several devices – for instance, of a karaoke console and game console. Switching between the two devices takes only one click on the remote control. Besides, EvoSoundBar reproduces audio from a USB drive, SD card, and via Bluetooth from any mobile device and transmits video signal in UHD 4K 60 FPS.

Even though the design is always a matter of taste, one can’t help noticing how sleek and thought-through both audio systems are. EvoSound Bar is supplied in two colours: black and pearl. 10 loudspeakers on the front panel provide rich and powerful sounding. 2 top and 2 side loudspeakers increase the angle of sound propagation up to 270°, spreading excellent sound around.
EvoSound Sphere is always available in several colours that makes it possible to fit the stereo system into any interior design. However, the first thing about the stereo system that catches the eye is the satellites’ round shape that makes them look like a plane turbine or even reminds a retro-design of the early aero-space era of the 1950s-1960s.
The satellites have quite compact measurements and are secured with reliable magnets on the adjustable terminals of the stands/mounting. It allows for quick adjustment of the angle and decline of the loudspeakers vertically on the desktop mounting and floor stands. On the wall mounting, the adjustment is horizontal. All these features will be certainly appreciated by those living in small apartments that are ill-fitted for sizeable studio loudspeakers.

EvoSound Bar or EvoSound Sphere?
The choice of the audio system is much determined by the interior layout of your apartment and, of course, your preferences. Those fancying three-dimensional sound will appreciate the Soundbar, while the fans of stereo sound and stylish design will undoubtedly pay their attention to the spherical EvoSound Sphere satellites.
Both EvoSound Bar и EvoSound Sphere are premium-class audio systems, designed for almost concert sounding of your home karaoke. The high quality of audio, acknowledged by singers around the world, is a distinguishing feature of audio equipment by Studio Evolution. The quality of assembling parts and fitting as well as the reasonable price are good reasons to recommend it as exterior acoustics for an X-STAR karaoke console.
