Speaking as someone who has admittedly owned more Bluetooth speakers than any one person should (premium and otherwise), I'm intrigued by any post for a speaker. However, I will say there are potentially better offerings available for less.
I actually just ordered a 120W Bluetooth speaker with touchscreen and two microphones for full karaoke function for $64 shipped from Sam's club auctions.
I like that this speaker has multiple functions like radio tuner to help it stand apart from some other basic Bluetooth speakers but some people will never use that. The microphone functionality is also a very specific-use functionality that may be exactly what some people are looking for.
If you only want the Bluetooth function/durability, look into the VTIN R7 on Amazon. It is also 50W and starts at $70 but practically every other week has a $20 coupon you can clip to make it $50 which is a steal. They are water resistant and support multiple paired units for surround sound. That means for $10 more, you could have stereo sound with dual 50W speakers.
Again, every speaker is different and this one has some features that may be the perfect mix for people. If you are going in just for a good sounding, high watt Bluetooth speaker, this may not be the best bang for your buck.
EDIT: I just wanted to clarify that I'm not knocking this product at all. My wife is a teacher and this would actually be perfect for her with the microphone function. I only want to add perspective for those who may only focus on the "Bluetooth speaker" aspect of the product.
Link for the karaoke machine? I want one with a screen that's good and not a fortune

It was on Sam's club auctions. I browse it every day or two and they haven't had any posted for about a week or more which means they have probably run their course on the auctions site. Sam's club auctions is one of their solutions for selling off clearance products. Unless you want to pay $200+, a link wouldn't really help now. Sorry

Wow. Thank you
Any recommendation for home use karaoke for a huge living room? I don't need the Bluetooth input function nor the water proof function. and mainly wanted a karaoke speaker with audio output from a TV box style karaoke. I don't need this to be too portable and for sure don't need the battery. The lyrics with music video will be on the TV so I don't need a screen at all

Thanks!!
Double check local Walmarts! They may still have them in stock but just last week, there were Singing Machine brand karaoke machines (same brand as mine) marked down at our local area Walmarts from $100 to $30. One trick I use with ours is I plug my Chromecast into the aux port. Then, I cast music across all of my speakers and Google devices in the house which includes the Chromecast. It effectively turns the karaoke machine into a surround sound karaoke machine because the microphones still work. I'll see if I can find the deal for the markdown karaoke machines at Walmart and maybe you will be in luck and have them in stock nearby
UPDATE:
I found the brickseek link in my browing history. there are still some of the karaoke machines I mentioned on sale at Walmart in my area for $30. Here is a link to the product so you can check your local inventory and see if it interests you:

This is the link to the exact model I got: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Singin...vUQAvD_BwE
There is another model dubbed the "Fiesta" that appears to be nearly identical except for the speaker grill and it looks to be more readily available and at better prices.
- ALSO, as an update, my original post stated some specs that were incorrect. once I received it in the mail, I found out that it did not have a touch screen (oh well) and may actually be 150 watts based on one websites specs list

Got one on last deal.
Sound is decent and good deal, but still waiting for battery replacement from Ion.
They are guessing this is being offered as deal because it is older stock that have battery life concerns.
Manual even indicates that because lead acid battery, it is best to keep plugged in at all times, even when not in use, to not have issues with battery degrading.

Be careful. Sam's club auctions can get as addictive as checking slick deals lol. A lot of the items end up going for pretty typical prices but every now and again, you will stumble on to something like the Bluetooth karaoke machines and end up getting something pretty great for a fraction of the cost. Hope you find some good deals!

When I try to checkout using (BDEXPRESS) for free shipping it doesn't work. Is it because I'm in Hawaii?

Can anyone say how this is just as a Blue Tooth speaker for music? I don't care about the mic aspect I just want to know how it is with playing music overall? I already have a JBL charge 2, which I like a lot and it works well, but is more of a small portable speaker and doesn't really thump as loud as I'd like, especially for outdoors. So I'm curious if this would fit the bill better?

Also regarding buydig & returns, can anyone say how this is? Meaning if I were to get one of these and simply didn't like it, could I return it for a full refund? And similar to Amazon would they pay for the return shipping? Cause if I had to pay for return shipping then that might be expensive considering this thing is almost 20lbs

Thanks!

Easily one of the most universally helpful and civil exchanges of information I've seen on slickdeals in some time. Own an Ion unit and enjoy it, which is why I clicked...stayed for the thoughtful and respectful comments.

The two talking points are absolutely unparalleled battery life and loud volume. Sound quality is not its forte

thank you! unfortunately none around me.......
Would these karaoke machines work better than the PA speakers from Costco for example?

Thanks again!!

My review, after purchasing this a few weeks back and enjoying my time so far with it:

Pros:
- SOLID CONSTRUCTION with great handles
- DESIGN isn't over-the-top "Woo look at me I'm rugged - my promo shots should be in a pickup truck!"
- BATTERY is absolutely massive. Weekend camping trips, day-long sporting events with volume around max, etc., all should be doable
- CONNECTIVITY is great. Both wired aux and bluetooth options, with NFC quick pairing. Bluetooth connection was consistent several rooms over
- RADIO - I won't use it, but that's cool, and it picks up stations just fine
- 1/4" JACK - could be used for karaoke, but, more importantly, can be used as a guitar or keyboard amp

Neutral
- SOUND - For the price, I'm perfectly content. I'm snobby for sound. For most use cases, this will sound good. The highs and lows are really pumped, but the mids are a little weak. This means that blasting it on a soccer field, gym, etc, will sound great, but if you're using it with a quality instrument, or a turntable, or a monitor for anything that requires sound profile accuracy, you'll be unimpressed. Otherwise, it's totally fine, and can definitely start some parties.
- PHONE CHARGING - cool that this feature was included, especially with the giant battery, but it's a fairly slow charger, and I do wish a second USB port could've been added

Cons
- MICROPHONE that was included kind of sucks. That's fine. I didn't need a quality mic, and it'd do fine for drunk karaoke or announcements. Just don't get excited

Overall, great speaker. At the current retail price of $200, I think there's tight competition, but if you can find a deal, it's a no-brainer. It feels very sturdy without being oppressively heavy, and it's not feature-rich, but it does a handful of things very well.
Sidenote, it charges with one of those big AC Power cables that desktop computers use, and I get a kick out of that, since it accurately represents how intense this battery life is.
