The KH 120 II is based on the same concept as its acclaimed predecessor but completely re-engineered for improved performance in all parameters: deeper bass, higher SPL capability and even better resolution. Internal DSP power allows for phase linear crossovers and room adaptive alignment via Neumann's revolutionary MA 1 Automatic Alignment.

Even Better
When Neumann released the KH 120 A in 2010, it was the beginning of an ongoing success story. Neumann monitoring has since become the reference of choice in countless studios around the world. The KH 120 II follows the same philosophy as its predecessor and, in fact, all Neumann studio monitors: highest linearity, lowest distortion, no coloration, and perfect adaptability to any acoustic environment. Thanks to improved performance in all parameters and a powerful DSP engine, the KH 120 II enables you to hear your tracks with even greater clarity and work more efficiently. Create mixes that translate optimally to all playback systems. With ease.

Perfect Sound with a Small Footprint
The KH 120 II has an exceptionally linear frequency response from 44 Hz to 21 kHz (+3 dB). Not only that: It also linearizes the phase response! Which translates to clear mids with astonishing transparency as well as extreme accuracy in the time domain: precise impulse reproduction and finely resolved reverbs. This is made possible by DSP controlled electronics which allow for sophisticated crossovers avoiding the phase distortion caused by analog filters. The internal DSP also realizes new standards in tonal consistency. The KH 120 II is made to extremely low tolerances of no more than +0.5 dB! And you can hear it, too: Stereo imaging is razor-sharp.

The KH 120 II is designed for nearfield applications with a recommended listening distance of 1 2 meters (3 6 ft.). It is thus ideally suited to smaller rooms such as home and project studios as well as mixing and editing suites or as a surround speaker in large multichannel applications. Thanks to its outstanding linearity in a portable format, the KH 120 II is also an excellent choice for creating a professional quality makeshift control room when working on location (e.g. orchestra/choir, live recording, film, broadcast).

Ready for Your Room
Even the best loudspeaker only sounds as good as the acoustic environment allows. Neumann's Mathematically Modelled Dispersion™ (MMD™) waveguide guarantees a wide sweet spot and minimizes desk reflections. But the KH 120 II goes much further: Its internal DSP allows for room calibration via Neumann's revolutionary Automatic Monitor Alignment. MA 1 (sold separately) makes sure your DSP powered monitors are optimally adapted to the character of your room and perfectly aligned for your listening position. Even in acoustically treated rooms, this results in a significant improvement.

Tonal compatibility with other KH line studio monitors makes it possible to use the KH 120 II in mixed setups e.g. in immersive setups. For flexible connectivity the KH 120 II features both analog and S/PDIF inputs.

AES 67 - Audio Over IP
Additionally, the KH 120 II AES67 model variant offers integrated redundant AES67 audio network ports that are fully compliant with broadcast standards such as ST 2110, ST 2022-7 redundancy, and RAVENNA. At the same time, the KH 120 II AES67 is compatible with DANTE®-generated AES67 network streams.

Energy Efficient
Neumann engineers took great care to develop a patent pending amplifier technology which combines superior audio performance with the energy efficiency of Class D. Although the power amplifiers of the KH 120 II deliver up to 145 W to the 5.25" woofer and 100 W to the 1" tweeter, they only consume 17 W at idle. Auto-standby reduces power consumption to 0.3 W when the KH 120 II has not been used for a while, but can be deactivated.

Incredible sound. I put them on IsoAcoustic stands. Just make sure you keep your wireless router away from them. The left speaker kept making a ticking noise in the tweeter with the router behind it. Got a 12 ft coaxial cable for the router, moved it and no problems.

Set up my new pair today on Iso-Acoustics 155 stands. Big change from my 20 year old unpowered Yorkville YSM-6's. L&M Monster Days gave me 6 months to pay for the speakers, stands and balanced 1/4 inch to XLR male cables to use with my Volt 2 audio interface. Thanks!

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
