Samson introduces portable PA with built-in wireless capability

Samson Technologies announces availability of the Expedition 40iw wireless portable PA system, the newest addition to the Expedition family and the first to feature a built-in wireless microphone system and a rechargeable battery.

Samson makes public address simple with an all-in-one portable sound system that offers everything you need to deliver a professional and memorable presentation: The Expedition 40iw.

To ensure pristine, full-range sound, the Expedition 40iw (XP40iw) employs a 6-inch woofer and a 1-inch high frequency driver. The unit features a 40 watt Class D amplifier that is perfectly matched to the driver for high efficiency and low current draw. It provides a built-in VHF wireless microphone system thatís ideal for any number of vocal applications. An internal iPod dock with level control also gives you the option of incorporating songs or other MP3s into your performance. Plus, with bass and treble control you can tweak your sound to appropriately match your specific setting and audience.

A rechargeable battery provides the XP40iw with absolute mobility. In addition, a 1/4-inch link in/out jack allows for linking two systems together to create a stereo setup. Lastly, as this stand-mountable PA is also extremely lightweight, it enhances the portability of the system. The XP40iw even has a convenient integral top handle for easier transport.

High-quality components, professional features and convenient portability make Samsonís XP40iw a consummate single system solution to a wide range of public address applications, including tour groups, classrooms, conference/meeting rooms, health clubs, outdoor events and even small auditoriums.

"The XP40iw sound system is perfect for any occasion where great sound and portability are a must," said Mark Wilder, Director of Marketing for Samson Technologies. "Setup is a snap, so it's easy to use at a backyard party Saturday night and to fire up the troops at a Monday morning sales meeting.”

The portable, yet powerful, XP40iw pumps out 40 watts of crystal clear, full-range sound from a lightweight Class D amplifier and features a 6-inch woofer with titanium dome compression driver. Users can also plug in additional mics or instruments to the XP40wi's two channel inputs or link two XP40wi systems together for stereo sound.

The Samson Expedition XP40wi is available now in Best Buy stores and online at for $299.99.
