Neumann KH 120 A Studio Monitor

The KH 120 A represents the latest in acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies to ensure the most accurate sound reproduction possible.

Neumann KH 120 A Studio Monitor Details

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
  • Two-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

Neumann KH 120 A speakers March 3, 2014
Reviewer: Colin Budd from Auckland, Auckland New Zealand  
I've spent a good number of years working in front of some pretty nice monitoring (ATC 20As) on a daily basis. While these Neumanns are somewhat smaller they hold up admirably in their detail and stereo imaging and perceived evenness across the spectrum. My initial concerns about them possibly being a little light weight in the bottom end were soon dispelled after switching to a Pendulum track at around 85db SPL. Even at this volume I got the message and the bass was impressively tight. Anyone wanting to push the listening levels might find them wanting some sub reinforcement but I tend to work with a gentler client so I'm happy with just the pair. These are respectable close fields leaning towards being ruthlessly honest when presented with a bad mix. I find some speakers with a flattering mid range tend to tire my ears out but I can listen to these all day.

Amazing sound. November 22, 2011
Reviewer: Jonathan Freeman from New York City, NY United States  
I'm no audiophile, but the sound tech guy at my studio owns a pair of these, and they make everything sound 100 times more clear and amazing. I'd never heard audio so crisp until I listened to music on these! Even at low volume they sound clear and vibrant.
