I have a few friends that always want to go somewhere and sing karaoke. One of my hard and fast rules of life is that I don't dance and I don't sing in public. I will humiliate myself with some Rock Band at my house, but singing in front of drunken people at the local Mexican food restaurant isn't my idea of fun. If you like to sing karaoke and want a portable system that will let you belt out your favorite songs and can be used for meetings and more Samson has a new product for you.
The new product is called the Expedition 40iw Portable Pa system. It has an integrated iPod dock and a wireless microphone. This is the first system to feature a wireless mic with an integrated rechargeable battery from Samson. The system can be used for karaoke, meetings, pool parties or any other task where you need to be heard by a group.
The dock has 40W of power that comes from a class D amp and it has a 6-inch woofer inside. The woofer has a titanium dome compression driver and it has plugs for additional mics and instruments to be connected. The XP40iw is in Best Buy locations right now for $299.99.
"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."
