Enjoy the same high-quality sound, wherever you are in the party. 360° LIVE SOUND spreads sound in every direction, so everyone's dancing to the same beat.
Mid and tweeter speakers direct sound over a wider area.

Spread sound generator
The spread sound generator directs sound across the whole dancefloor, so everyone enjoys similar clarity and volume.
360° Party Light
Light up every corner of the party space with a 360° party light, and enjoy an authentic nightclub or festival atmosphere.
You can play along on samplers including bongo, djembe, surdo and the Japanese Taiko drum, just by tapping the top panel in time to the beat.
Taiko Game mode
Put your rhythm to the test in Taiko Game mode – tap on the top panel in time with the lights and see who can set the highest score at the party.
Unleash your inner pop star
Keep everyone entertained – with two mic inputs you and your guests can go head-to-head singing along to your favourite tunes. Alternatively, you can add a rock and roll layer by connecting a mic and a guitar for a proper jam session, or even hook up a bass guitar and use it as an amp, complete with overdrive effects.
Be the DJ with Gesture Control
Put your own spin on the party in one simple move. Fun and intuitive gesture control lets you take charge of all your party features, including DJ effects, sampler and Karaoke features. Flick left and right to skip tracks, and up or down to manage the volume. Customising your party has never been so much fun.
Boost the party with extra speakers
Enjoy more powerful sound by connecting multiple home audio systems via Bluetooth®. Connect up to 50 compatible home audio systems and synchronise the music and lighting.

Stadium thrills at home with Football Mode
Shift the MHC-V81D into Football Mode to enjoy an authentic stadium experience. Choose narration off and immerse yourself in the crowd, by minimising narration volume and increasing crowd cheers.
Built-in DVD player
Watch movies easily thanks to a built-in DVD player and enjoy rich sound that brings your favourite scenes to life.
Seamless streaming with NFC and BLUETOOTH®
Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth® technology remove the need for wired connections and complex set-up sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled device to the MHC-V81D for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming your music collection. No NFC? No problem. Connect via Bluetooth® technology and you’re ready to go.
Multi device connection
You and your friends can pair up to three smartphones simultaneously using BLUETOOTH® technology.
Enjoy high-quality Bluetooth® streaming with LDAC™
LDAC™ sends approximately three times more data (at the maximum 990 kbps transfer rate) than conventional Bluetooth® audio for a superior wireless listening experience.
DSEE automatically restores detail to digital music
Boost the quality of your compressed music files. When an original music source is compressed, it loses the high frequency elements that add detail and richness to your favourite tracks. The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) faithfully restores these to produce high quality sound that’s closer to the original CD recording.
Splashproof top panel
The MHC-V81D’s top surface is splashproof, dustproof and easy to clean, so the party can keep going all night even if you spill a drink.
Tilt and roll for portability
Whenever you want to move the MHC-V81D, just hold the convenient carry handle and tilt it back. A sturdy caster lets you roll all the way to the party.
DJ effects let you put your own spin on tracks
Get the crowd going with DJ effects. Four different effects set the stage for your party: Flanger creates a deep flanging effect similar to the roar of a jet plane; WAH automatically moves the frequency of a filter up and down; Isolator singles out a specific frequency band; and PAN sweeps the sound across speakers. You can use DJ effects with the Fiestable app and gesture control, so getting creative with your playlists has never been easier.
USB port lets you plug in and play
Play tracks stored on a USB device, or make your own custom playlists with direct CD-to-USB recording. Simply connect your device to the PLAY / REC port and you are set to power up your next party with all your favorite tracks.
