Neumann KH 120 A Studio Monitor Details
Neumann is excited to introduce its latest innovation, the KH 120, representing the first product in the new line of Neumann Studio Monitors.

The KH 120 A studio monitor is designed for use as a near-field loudspeaker or as a rear loudspeaker in larger multi-channel systems. The KH 120 A 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 (MMD), flexible acoustical controls, analog class-AB amplifiers, a large headroom analog input 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.

The KH 120 is perfect for tracking, mixing and mastering in music, broadcast, project and post-production studios.

Neumann KH 120 A Studio Monitor Features
Compact aluminum cabinet (magnetically shielded) - minimizes resonances, better heat dissipation, long life
Non-parallel cabinet walls - Greatly attenuated internal standing waves

One-piece front panel with no discontinuities - Reduced diffraction and smoother frequency response
Powerful titanium fabric dome - Low-distortion high-frequency reproduction

Elliptical Mathematically Modeled Dispersion (MMD) waveguide - More forgiving of diverse acoustical environments

Wide horizontal dispersion - Freedom of movement across the mixing console

Narrow vertical dispersion - Reduces reflections off the mixing console

Twp-color + dimmable Neumann logo - Displays operation status and activation of the extensive protection system

Robust metal grille - Protects against mechanical damage
Composite sandwich cone - Damping of break-up modes

Long throw bass driver - Low distortion at high sound levels

Large front panel ports - Reduced bass compression and easier to mount in tight spaces such as OB vans

A subwoofer, such as the Neumann KH 180, 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

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

Separate woofer and tweeter electronic peak limiters and thermal-protection circuitry - High reliability

Powerful analog amplifiers with large headroom - Improved transient response

Production consistency - Any KH 120 is "pair-matched" to any other KH 120

Universal switched-mode power supply (100...240 V) - One version works in any country and robust to poor quality mains supply

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

I'm a sound designer for Film and Television and lately I've been doing a lot of Sci Fi production (Killjoys, Dark Matter) Designing this type of sound scape is very demanding on a speaker but the Neumann's handle it very well. It takes the huge transients and rapidly changing spl and frequency levels and maintains the clarity and detail without getting bogged down. I'm so impressed I had to review.

I mix mainly classical and accoustic rep and these have been an absolute joy to work with. I am very used to B&W 802s which are a larger multi-driver system (many times the price), and these end up being like a little brother version of those venerable monitors. The spectral detail is stunning, eq is all I need, and they pass the spouce factor due to their diminutive profile. My reason for giving them a nine instead of ten is for the paint job; could have been a thicker powder coat or something. Get 'em. Get 'em now!

The best way to decide on these monitors is to take them home and try them out. There are a lot of nice sounding speakers in L&M, but for critical listening these show amazing detail. The frequency graph is completely flat. When you listen in your own environment all frequencies are evenly displayed without hyping any frequency. The low end detail is so smooth its hard to believe that this is a 5.25 inch speaker. There is no honkiness, just a steady even sound. It feels like I have a sub with all of the extra low detail that these monitors bring. Don't just compare them to other monitors in the store because some others sound better in that environment, however the Neumanns have the most full featured sound of any monitor in that price bracket.

at low levels (which i mix at) it's got incredible detail. a pair of these with a sub-woofer and you've got no excuses. much better than the others in this price range.
