Roland KC-110 overview

  • 1Description

The KC-110 from Roland is a battery-powered stereo keyboard amplifier with three separate input channels (including an XLR microphone input), built-in effects, and lots of useful features like the ability to mount on a speaker stand. You can plug stereo keyboards, a microphone, and other line-level devices into the KC-110 (such as a drum machine and an MP3 player) and it will amplify the sounds either on battery power or when plugged into AC power with the included adapter.

Built-in effects help to sweeten the sound and accentuate the stereophonic sounds of your keyboards and other devices and instruments. A pole mounting cup in the base of the KC-110 makes it possible to attach it to a tripod speaker stand. Raising any speaker system up to your ear level makes it sound a lot clearer. When a pole mount isn't available, the KC-110 features a handy tilt-back stand at its base, which helps point the speakers up toward your ears when it's placed on the floor. The dual 6.5" (16 cm) stereo speakers are bi-amplified, and a "Wide" chorus effect is included to achieve an impressive stereo sound.

Runs on eight AA batteries, eight AA rechargeable batteries, or AC power (adaptor included)
Highly efficient 30 watts (15W + 15W) stereo amplifier with two 6.5" (16 cm) speakers and two tweeters
High-quality stereo digital effects built in: reverb, chorus, "Wide" chorus, and EQ; effects on/off can be controlled with optional footswitch
Three independent channels with volume control
XLR mic/instrument input, two stereo inputs, stereo aux input, stereo line outputs, and headphone output
Mounts on a speaker stand (like the separately available ST-A95 Speaker Stand)
Built-in tilt-back stand
Removable battery cartridge for easy battery replacement

    Roland KC-110 reviews

    KC-110 - Battery-Powered Keyboard Amplifier is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good investment I bought this amp to use with a portable keyboard in a playschool and as a personal monitor in a small band. It serves those purposes well, and it's low weight, kickstand, and battery-powered operation are good features. The sound is even/balanced across the frequency spectrum and quite clear (low distortion), with very little noise/hiss. Bass output is acceptable, though at higher bass settings the cabinet/unused jacks contribute some noticeable air movement huff noises at moderate to high volumes. Output is sufficient for low stage volume and rehearsal applications. Resting on Roland's solid reputation for quality/durability to warrant the price vs. alternatives.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for low volumes This amp sounds really good, but being 30 watts (20 on batteries) is only good in a low volume context. A good rule of thumb would be if an acoustic piano would be loud enough, so will this amp. The speaker stand mount is handy, but you will need an adapter because the hole is a little larger than standard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy, at last! This is the best sounding stereo keyboard speaker (for the money) I've ever owned! Over the years, I've invested in one set of monitors after another. Some were more powerful, but NONE sounds as good as the KD-110. This baby sounds great! 5 stars ... well deserved!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp for the money! Our clarinet quartet was looking for an amp, or pair of amps, that we could use in a battery-powered mode - maximum portability. I did plenty of research, found a variety of products, but this one kept popping up, and was rated the best. After trying it out at a few gigs, using it with a keyboard once - at a separate gig - and in rehearsals, I'm quite impressed! We purchased two of these, plugged in a pair of AKG mics on stands, and are able - WITH batteries only - to get decent amplification. It's not for a large outdoor setting, rather a small gathering, which is what we do. We have 1,100 watt amplified speakers for larger concerts, but for most gigs, these are perfect! Built-in reverb and chorus effects and precise control over every input, eliminates our need for a mixer! The less we have to carry, the better. The small stands on the bottom of the speakers for propping it up give an extra boost to the amount of sound we get! There's little to no distortion. Only issue I could bring up is that because this is primarily a keyboard amp, I find the speaker response a little bit 'boomy,' and can't really adjust it out. Still, we're clarinetists, and with almost no distortion - feedback comes in from the mics if the output is too high - the sound quality is quite clear. All we wanted to do was project ourselves louder, perhaps with a drop of reverb to overcome the deadness of the outdoor sound response. Voila! Also, they're really quite light to carry - we put both on a small luggage cart with the cables, and we're good to go!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent keyboard speaker. I've tried two other Roland speakers before I tried this one. I watched an excellently done video by Chuck Pianoman and it helped me decided to try this KC 110. I cannot believe the difference. The deep base and treble are just wonderful and a joy to hear. I'm looking forward to many years with this speaker. It's definitely not for a huge room but for my purposes it will be more than enough. I play to small audiences and groups but it sounds fantastic. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great keyboard speaker.
