ANAHEIM, CA (April 13, 2023) – Samson, an industry pioneer in professional audio products, announces the new Expedition Explor rechargeable portable loudspeaker with mixer, at NAMM 2023. An expansion to Samson’s rechargeable Expedition Series, the Explor is designed to pro-vide powerful sound in a compact speaker for live performances, presentations, fitness classes, outdoor events and more. The Expedition Explor is currently available at MI retailers for $429.99, or with an included Samson XPD handheld wireless system for $499.99.

Expedition Explor is a powerful, lightweight, portable PA system that delivers crystal clear sound from any source, anywhere. This all-in-one solution features a 3-channel mixer, 3-way speaker system and includes a rechargeable battery for up to 12 hours of continuous use. And thanks to the onboard 200-watt amplifier and multiple positioning options, the Expedition Explor is able to handle any mobile application.
