Product Description

The Neumann KH120 Active Studio Monitor is designed for use as a near-field loudspeaker or as a rear loudspeaker in larger multi-channel systems. The Neumann KH 120 represents the latest in acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies to ensure the most accurate sound reproduction possible. It has a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide, flexible acoustical controls, analog class-AB amplifiers, various input formats and an extensive mounting hardware range.

All of this provides the user with the maximum versatility over a wide variety of acoustic conditions, source equipment, and physical locations. A subwoofer, such as the Neumann KH 810, with its 7.1 High Definition Bass Manager, can be added to deepen the low-frequency response to 18 Hz and increase the system's maximum output level. The KH 120 is perfect for tracking, mixing and mastering in music, broadcast, project and post-production studios.

Neumann KH120 Active Studio Monitor Features:

  • Powerful titanium fabric dome: Low-distortion high-frequency reproduction
  • Elliptical Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide: Smoother off-axis response, More forgiving of diverse acoustical environments
  • Composite sandwich cone: Damping of break-up modes
  • Long throw bass driver: Low distortions at high sound levels
  • Two-color + dimmable Neumann logo: Displays operation status and activation of the extensive protection system
  • Robust metal grille: Protects against mechanical damage
  • Large front panel ports: Reduced bass compression and easier to mount in tight spaces such as OB vans
  • Compact aluminum cabinet (magnetically shielded): Minimizes resonances, better heat dissipation, long life
  • Wide horizontal dispersion: Freedom of movement across the mixing console
  • Narrow vertical dispersion: Reduces reflections off the mixing console
  • One-piece front panel with no discontinuities: Reduced diffraction and smoother frequency response
  • Powerful analog amplifiers with large headroom: Improved transient response
  • Production consistency: Any KH 120 is ‘pair-matched’ to any other KH 120
  • 4-position bass, low-mid and treble acoustical controls: More control in diverse acoustical environments
  • Wide range input gain and output level controls: Easier interfacing with signal sources
  • New mounting hardware options: More flexibility in mounting cabinets in more diverse locations
  • Display dimmer: For low lighting level conditions or behind the screen applications
  • Ground lift: Reduced noise in electrically noisy environments and over-comes ground loops
  • Universal switched-mode power supply (100...240 V): One version works in any country and robust to poor quality mains supply
  • Separate woofer and tweeter electronic peak limiters and thermal-protection circuitry: High reliability

Neumann Studio Monitor Systems

Neumann is well-known in the audio industry for its high quality microphones in studios, broadcast, and on stage. Neumann has also been a pioneer in the audio industry for over 80 years with a long history of world-class products. These products have kept Neumann on the cutting edge of technology - from mixing consoles and disc cutting lathes, to more recent innovations in digital technology with the Solution-D system. Now Neumann is excited to introduce its latest innovation, the KH 120, representing the fi rst product in the new line of Neumann Studio Monitors.
