Neumann Launches Digital Version of its KH 120 Nearfield Studio Monitor

Enhanced Version of KH 120 Features Digital Inputs, Time Delay Compensation

Las Vegas – April 8, 2014 – Premium audio brand Neumann announced the launch of its first digital studio monitor: the KH 120 D. Based on the KH 120 A small format studio monitor launched in 2010, the KH 120 D sets a new standard of sonic quality and price-performance ratio in the compact nearfield monitor segment. The KH 120 D will be on display at the Neumann booth at the 2014 NAB Show [booth C3217] and will be shipping this summer.

The KH 120 D is designed for tracking, mixing and mastering applications in music, broadcast, project and post-production studios. Utilizing the latest in acoustic and electronic simulation technologies, the KH 120 D ensures the most accurate sound reproduction possible. Equipped with an additional BNC input for AES/EBU or S/P-DIF formats (24-bit/192 kHz), the KH 120 D enables seamless digital workflow right up through playback on the studio monitor.

The KH 120 D also features digital delay for both analog and digital inputs, enabling the monitor to be used for demanding tasks requiring time alignment. With a maximum delay of over 400 ms, the KH 120 D is able to seamlessly address audio/video synchronization issues, or simply manage time delay compensation in situations where space constraints preclude equidistant positioning of loudspeakers.

Wolfgang Fraissinet, President of Neumann.Berlin, commented: “Neumann’s studio monitors are built to extremely high tolerances and deliver an ‘honest’ sound. With the KH 120 D, a fully digital workflow can now also benefit from these characteristics. The addition of a built-in delay feature makes the KH 120 D suitable for new applications and represents exceptional value at this price point. It provides an answer to the very latest trends in the field of professional audio.”

The KH 120 D studio monitor is designed for use as a near-field loudspeaker or as a rear loudspeaker in larger multi-channel systems. It features a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide (MMD), flexible acoustical controls, analog class-AB amplifiers, various input formats (analog and digital) and an extensive range of mounting hardware. All of this provides the user with the maximum versatility over a wide variety of acoustic conditions, source equipment, and physical locations.
