The speaker features a built-in 100-watt Class D amplifier, driving a heavy-duty 6" woofer and a 1" tweeter for full-range sound. The rechargable battery gives you up to 20 hours of life from a single charge, more than enough for your day at the beach, barbecue, presentation, or aerobics class. The unit's 4-channel mixer allows you to blend inputs from its 1/4"/XLR channel, the 1/8" channel for MP3 players and other portable devices, a USB wireless channel for the wireless mic, and Bluetooth streaming inputs. The XP106w also includes a line output that allows you to daisy-chain additional systems.

But it's the wireless mic that really makes the XP106w stand out from the crowd. This addition to the unit's range of other features is so logical that it's surprising we haven't seen it before. Reap the benefits of Samson's adventurousness, and start a new adventure of your own.

Purchased one of these from another website. Ordered this one from Crutchfield because of product availability; customer reviews on Crutchfield; and short delivery time. [ John  Apr 12, 2016 ]
