The built-in VHF wireless microphone receiver makes it simple to use the included microphone. The rear of the cabinet offers an XLR/TRS combo input with phantom power, as well as a 1/4" input and a 3.5mm Aux input.

        Comments about Samson XP40iW Portable Wireless iPod PA Speaker:

        Purchased this for use with a large 4H Club (50 members). Used it at the first meeting which was outside, on a slightly windy day, most excellent. Even when a member used the mic and stood infront of the speaker did not get feedback. The unit has a nice build in carry handle on the back and is light enough for the 4th graders to carry it out to the car for me. Overall very pleased with our purchase. This speaker will support a second wireless mic when the Club can afford one. This also gives the 4H members practice handling a mic.

            I use this battery operated, light weight, portable PA for light background music if needed, but mostly for JP duties at small wedding ceremonies. It is perfect for 40-80 people, especially indoors. Outdoors, it doesn't have the same throw distance, but the people who really need to hear the vows and cues are all up front anyway. For the price, you can't go wrong. If you are looking to cover bigger spaces, buy a bigger system.

                This is a really user-friendly PA that my Maryland bird club purchased for our monthly meetings. It's probably no surprise that the average age of birders is right on up there, so we really appreciate good, clear amplification in an easily transportable device. I'm very pleased with this system and would highly recommend it.

                    This is truly a useful PA system. We have audio training files for our store meetings. I put them into iTunes on my iPhone and docked it to the speaker and played them effortlessly. The sound was awesome and could be heard by a group of 18 easily. I could use the wireless microphone to talk over the iPhone sound when needed. Truly impressive unit.

                        Used for a summer program of around 80 people. The amp has great battery life and great sound. It is smaller and more compact than my older system which made it easier to haul around. Also, the added ipod doc was extremely convenient.

                        The only problem was that the battery on the microphone kept on dieing. It took me a few days to realize that the shut-off for the mike was only after you unscrew the mike; the switch on the bottom is only for battery strength. Seems a little odd and I don't like "playing" with the case as it is more likely to break that way.
