The Saregama Carvaan Musicbar Karaoke is a soundbar-subwoofer combo costs ₹9,990 and comes with 1,000 pre-loaded songs, 2 mics for Karaoke and much more. Read on to check out our full review.

Design

In terms of design, the Musicbar Karaoke is a bit of an upgrade from the previous Saregama Carvaan Musicbar, because it gets these rose-gold accents on the button area, and this fake-wood trim at the ends. The subwoofer is very simply designed, with no buttons at all, but the Carvaan logo is finished in Rose Gold to match the soundbar.

Both the soundbar and subwoofer are made of plastic, which makes them very light. The soundbar weighs just 1.6kg, while the subwoofer comes in at 4.92kg.

This lightweight package makes it easier to wall-mount the soundbar, which is why Saregama has thoughtfully included a wall-mount adapter on the back of the soundbar, right out of the box. Additionally, you get mounting brackets and screws inside the box, so you can set this up pretty easily if you have a drill at home.

Along with the mounting brackets at the back, you’ll find the different ports and inputs for the Carvaan Musicbar. As for the subwoofer, it doesn’t have any inputs or buttons, but it gets a cable to connect to the soundbar.

Ports & Features

In terms of ports, the Musicbar Karaoke gets a wide variety of inputs. There’s USB 3.0, AUX In, HDMI ARC and Coaxial input. You also get Bluetooth 5.0 and FM Radio. Being a Carvaan product, the soundbar also comes with 1,000 pre-loaded evergreen Hindi songs, and there’s a booklet in the box to help you browse through the track list.

Now the biggest upgrade on this Musicbar compared to the previous model is the Karaoke function, which uses these two mics included in the box. Saregama also includes four Duracell AA batteries, two for each mic. The mics themselves connect to the soundbar automatically once you hit the mic button on the soundbar and turn on the mics.

Once you’ve got the mics setup, you can use any source for a Karaoke track and sing using the Carvaan mics.

Apart from this, you’re also provided a remote to control various functions, an HDMI cable and a 3.5mm cable—all in the box itself.

Sound

Specification-wise, there’s four 2.5-inch speakers in the Musicbar, and one 6.5-inch driver in the subwoofer, for a total 120W of power output.

Now, the Musicbar Karaoke is aimed at mass-market users, so it has a largely bass-heavy sound profile that’s suited to appeal a larger audience. The subwoofer puts out loud, booming bass that dominates the sound signature, but you do have controls on the remote to tune the bass and treble to your liking.

The Musicbar Karaoke has a very sharply V-shaped sound signature with recessed modes, but sounds really fun for any kind of music that thrives on bass. Clarity does suffer as you turn the volume higher, but even at around 50% volume, the soundbar should easily full most reasonably-sized rooms.

You also have presets for when you’re using the soundbar to watch movies, so if you are, for instance, watching action movies, the extra bass should help give you that thumping sound effect for explosions and such.

Verdict

Overall, the Carvaan Musicbar Karaoke packs in a lot of features for its ₹9,990 price point. It gets loud, offers a pleasing sound signature for those that love thumping bass, and comes with a wide variety of input options. If you’re looking for a feature-rich upgrade from your default TV speakers, this is a pretty good choice.
