Las Vegas, NV (January 8, 2019) – Samson, an industry pioneer in professional audio products, launches the Expedition Escape+ and Express+ Rechargeable Speaker Systems with Bluetooth at CES 2019. These speakers are ideal for any setting, from intimate gatherings to larger recreational events. Capable of delivering rich sound for up to 20 hours, users can stream Bluetooth audio wirelessly from any mobile device or connect a microphone, instrument or Samson XPD Series wireless system to the onboard mixer, making them truly versatile entertainment systems.

Packed with Power
Both the Express+ and Escape+ deliver enough power to entertain groups of all sizes with clear, full-range audio. The Escape+ features a 50-watt Class D amplifier that will liven up a house party, while the Express+ features a 75-watt Class D amplifier that delivers enough sound for the company picnic.  In both systems, a 6” woofer supports plenty of bass, while a 1” tweeter provides the shimmering highs that are essential for faithfully reproducing vocals and instruments.

Beyond Music
In addition to delivering great sound, the Escape+ and Express+ feature a variety of features that extend its functionality. The Escape+ has a 2-channel mixer with microphone and Aux inputs. The Express+ features a 3-channel mixer with 2-band EQ that offers multiple input options, each with dedicated volume controls. The mixers on both systems also have a USB wireless port to integrate a Samson XPD Series USB Digital Wireless System (sold separately) to enjoy the benefits of a wireless microphone in any vocal or speech application. Additionally, both systems sport a Bluetooth channel to wirelessly stream music from a mobile device.

Portability and Placement
Each system includes a 20-hour internal rechargeable battery and a rugged polypropylene enclosure with a steel grille, enabling them to endure the longest of parties and the roughest roads. The speakers’ impressive power-to-weight ratio and integrated top carry handle guarantee easy transportation to any event. Both feature a 1 3/8″ speaker mount for use with any standard speaker stand. They can also be positioned upright or tilted back on their sides.
