Cash Studio has been around for quite some time now – and it shows. The décor wears thin at parts and their song selection system isn’t touchscreen, which seems strangely old-fashioned in today’s scene. But their sound system, mics, TVs and song selection’s navigability – the most important elements of karaoke – all work well, which proves that old can still be good. People don’t just come to Cash Studio because it’s cheap, though. They come, too, for the Daiichikosho-produced DAM karaoke systems, which have a pretty updated range of J-Pop, J-Rock, anime fare and more. One word of warning: if you want to use the DAM machines (which are programmed in Japanese and separate from the English-language song selection), know your hiragana and your katakana, or else you won’t stand a chance at using the system.
