Full release after the ‘leap’

Hauppauge, NY – February 03, 2010 – Samson Technologies, an industry leading audio technology manufacturer, is excited to announce two new additions to the Expedition family of Portable Sound Systems.  Due out in April of this year the XP40iw (wireless) and XP510i will join the highly successful XP308i Portable Sound System.  The new models will continue Expedition tradition of delivering powerful single system portable sound and are perfect at a tailgate, backyard barbeque, wedding or Christmas party.

The Samson Expedition family continues to be the only portable sound systems available with integrated iPod docks, making DJ-ing a party easier than ever before.

“I recently used an Expedition system at home during a Halloween party with my iPod,” said Mark Wilder, Director of Marketing for Samson Technologies.  ”The setup could not have been easier, I had the music pumping through my house and backyard in under 5 minutes.  DJ-ing with the Expedition system is the perfect DIY solution for professional sound.”

The 40 watt XP40iw is Samson’s first Expedition model to include a wireless mic system and features a rechargeable battery, onboard iPod dock, handheld mic, two channel inputs for additional mics or instruments and an integrated handle and stand mount for easy setup and breakdown.  Expedition is an all-in-one portable sound system perfect for any application where great sound and portability are a must.

Samson’s new XP5101i pumps out crystal clear sound through dual 2-way speakers with a detachable 10-channel mixer with a 500 watt (2 x 250) Class D amplifier. The speakers employ 10-inch woofers in vented enclosures for outstanding bass response while 1-inch high-frequency drivers deliver sweet highs. And when the party’s over, the speakers slide together, the mixer locks into the back of one speaker and the cables pack up in the back of the other, for a single unit that weighs just over 50 pounds.

The original XP308i, which is now available, comes complete with dual 2-way speakers, on-board mixer and 300 watt power amplifier, 8-channel mixer with built in iPod dock, 4 mic/line in inputs internal and effects processor.  Portability is second to none with the XP308i thanks to a clever, lightweight design that allows you to pack all the pieces together into a single, easy to transport case.
