Cash Studio Karaoke is popular in Singapore for its range of Japanese songs, retro 70s ambience, and relatively affordable prices. However, Cash Studio Karaoke tends to lag behind other karaoke studios in Singapore in terms of audio technology and song selection screens. It also shows signs of aging, such as failing air-conditioning, and generally uncleanliness, such as customers smoking within the rooms. Furthermore, Cash Studio Karaoke is mostly located in dodgy, or out of the way, locations.

The red, gold, black and neon blue coloured rooms of Cash Studio Karaoke are dimly lit and relatively clean, although some rooms smell of cigarette smoke. The room size is more spacious than other karaoke studios, and often include mobile phone chargers, spare seats, or retro microphone stands on a small dance floor. Their touch screen song selection screen is barely user-friendly, and navigation require much swipping. Some outlets require you to download a mobile app to navigate, which is cumbersome. An additional remote control would be welcome. I like that Cash Studio Karaoke allows you to save song selections (which are tagged to your mobile number), and members get discounts and special treatment, so repeat visits are encouraged. However, some of their microphones still have wires, while others are cordless, but hygiene isn't an issue with microphone covers provided.

Cash Studio Karaoke utilizes the Daiichi Kosho Amusement Multimedia (DAM) karaoke audio system, which is known for its raw sound performance, and smooth song switching. The actual equipment in-room however, is aging, and shows signs of poor maintenance such as fuzziness, or cutting off mid-way. Actual service from staff at Cash Studio Karaoke tends to be decent, they're polite and relatively efficient, quick at fulfilling orders, and willing to help with requests. But there is little interaction. The song catalog at Cash Studio Karaoke is very extensive, offering songs in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Malay, Hindi, and Korean.

Rates at Cash Studio Karaoke are mid-range, lower than most karaoke studios, but not the cheapest, at SGD $58 for 3 hours and 3 persons, with additional people costing SGD $13 each. Drinks are expensive, starting from SGD $4 per non-alcoholic beverage. Cash Studio Karaoke provides tidbits, but you can also choose to bring your own drinks and food. Most of their rooms also feature dual television screens, so you get clear views no matter where you're seated. Cash Studio Karaoke outlets are nearly constantly booked on weekends, but generally available on weekday evenings.
