The Samson Expedition XP208w Rechargeable Portable PA is the perfect solution for anyone who needs great-sounding mobile audio. With 200 watts of power, 20 hours of battery life, a 4-channel mixer and Bluetooth audio, the XP208w offers big sound to musicians, DJs or those just hanging around the barbeque. The system includes a wireless handheld microphone for completely cord-free performance.

Power and Build
The XP208w operates for up to 20 hours continuously via its built-in rechargeable battery. Its lightweight amplifier delivers 200 watts of power to an 8" 2-way speaker system. All of this is housed in a rugged polypropylene enclosure with a steel grille, locking telescopic handle and smooth rolling wheels that weighs just under 24 pounds. Needless to say, transporting the XP208w is a breeze. Plus, a 1 3/8" speaker mount allows the XP208w to be mounted using any standard speaker stand.

In The Mix
Equipped with a full-featured 4-channel mixer, the XP208w makes for quick and easy setup. Connect microphones, line-level devices, and for buskers, guitars directly to the XP208w. The speaker can also stream music wirelessly from any Bluetooth device. A variable reverb control adds depth, and a voiceover ducker automatically lowers the music when speaking or singing into a microphone (XLR or wireless inputs). In addition, a master 2-band EQ is provided to adjust the tonal characteristics of the XP208w, as is a line output to daisy-chain additional speakers.

Wires, Schmires
Included with the XP208w comes a Samson XPD2 Handheld Digital USB Wireless System (with USB extension cable). And thanks to the inclusion of two USB wireless ports, you can integrate a second XPD Series wireless system (sold separately) for multi-performer vocal and speech applications.

A really nice multiple use tool, but has limitations


I originally bought this for outdoor acoustic gigs where I knew there was no power. I wanted to plug a guitar into one input and use the wireless mic and be able to use the built in echo for both. The echo is barely usable; it doesn't sound great and not very tweakable. Also it only works on channels 1 and 3, so if you are trying to use a mandolin or 2nd guitar and go into input 2, no echo. Also, input 2 is a 3.5mm line level input. I wish it was a duplicate of input 1. The EQ is overall, so if you tweak it up for the guitar, the mic may not sound great. The wireless mic that comes with it actually sounds very good. The battery only seemed to last about 6 hours, not the advertised 12. You can bluetooth your phone to it to play music and use the mic to sing along with it, so instant Karaoke machine. Sound quality overall very good. Lightweight and loud enough. The ducking feature is cool but I wish it would take a little longer to release, so as to better handle the pauses in normal speech. In summary, if the mixer section was better, this thing would be perfect.
