Product Description

Neumann is excited to introduce the first product in the new line of Neumann Studio Monitors: the KH 120. The KH 120 is a compact studio monitor designed for use as a near-field loudspeaker or as a rear loudspeaker in larger multi-channel systems. The latest acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies we used in the development of the KH 120 to ensure reference quality performance. The KH 120 features a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide (MMD) to deliver smooth off axis response. A four position bass, low-mid and treble acoustical controls allows the user to tailor the output appropriate to the listening environment. Wide range input gain and output level controls offer easy interface with a variety of signal sources. The KH 120’s is bi-amplified using class-AB analog amplifiers delivering exceptional transient response, dynamic range and overall output level. An extensive range of optional mounting hardware provides installation versatililty and flexibilty. The KH 120 is perfect for tracking, mixing and mastering in music, broadcast, project and post-production studios.
