Best In Show - 2014 NAMM Show

Samson Expedition XP106w Wins "Gotta Stock It" Award and Samson BT30 Wins "Best Accessories and Add-Ons" Award

Samson continues to demonstrate what makes us one of the leading audio technology companies in the world. At this year's NAMM show, we unveiled our most extensive offering of products to date, which will make their way to market this year. Two of those products were selected as "Best In Show" by a panel of retail buying experts on January 26. The Samson Expedition XP106w Portable PA with Bluetooth® won the "Gotta Stock It" award, which is given to a product that retailers want to stock immediately (if they haven’t already). The Samson BT30 30-Pin Bluetooth Receiver won the "Best Accessories and Add-Ons" award, which is given to a great new product in the small-goods arena.

"It's exciting for everyone at Samson to have two of our new products singled out by the Best In Show panel," states Director of Marketing Mark Menghi. "Samson is committed to creating products that enhance the consumer and musician audio experience. That has always been and always will be our goal with every product we release."

The Samson Expedition XP106w Portable PA features Bluetooth connectivity, a built-in mixer and a wireless handheld dynamic microphone for delivering impromptu performances and professional presentations in any environment. Such versatility, combined with clean, crisp audio, makes the Samson Expedition XP106w the all-in-one solution for classrooms, conferences, tour groups, parties, as well as a variety of mobile and outdoor applications. The Expedition XP106w features a 6" woofer, 1" high frequency driver and lightweight, 100-watt Class D amplifier. A rechargeable battery also increases the mobility of the PA, allowing for up to 20 hours of continuous use wherever great sound is needed. The system comes with Samson's Stage XPD1 USB Digital Wireless System, a 2.4GHz system featuring a wireless receiver built into a USB stick and a handheld dynamic microphone transmitter that boasts a 100' operating range. It's easy to see why the Samson Expedition XP106w took home the "Gotta Stock It" award this year.
