The Neumann KH 80 DSP Studio Monitor is an ultra-compact, DSP-controlled studio monitor with exceptional power.. It features a new DSP engine that optimizes output to achieve reference class sound and mathematically optimized dispersion to deliver excellent detail in any surroundings.

The Neumann KH 80 DSP Studio Monitor is the ideal monitor for any ambitious home recording or project studio. The spatial imaging and precise sense of depth ought to satisfy the demands of even discerning professionals, which is exceedingly remarkable and quite possibly unprecedented in this price range.

The Number 1 for 0 Compromises
With its digital core, the Neumann KH 80 DSP enables filtering functions and room adjustment options, which brings reference level reproduction to any environment. Even with its compact design, it has extraordinary reserve capacity - as well as the classic strengths of the Neumann monitor philosophy: clearly defined dispersion angle, distortion-free design and sophisticated material selection.

The Perfect Sound of Higher Mathematics At Work
The Neumann developers know every nuance, every angle and every wave reflection of the Neumann KH 80 DSP. It sounds so pure because they are directing every sound wave so precisely. The Neumann KH 80 DSP’s design is based on computer simulations that calculate with a level of accuracy that no one other than Neumann does. The Mathematical Modeled Dispersion Waveguide (MMD™) provides the studio series with a solid base for precise sound direction that remains unique. Maths has never sounded so good.

Neumann Even Includes the Biggest Unknown Factor in Their Calculations - Your Room
It might be a project studio, an outside broadcast van, a corner at work or just a brick building: The room defines the sound. Surfaces and corners in the room cause interference, diffraction, reflection, and refraction: all are forms of distortion. For a really true sound, without acoustic-physical “accidents”, you normally need expensive equipment plus plenty of time and expertise to align it correctly – or smart algorithms. An easy adjustment to the monitor position (free standing, small/medium/large desk) is possible via the rear "Acoustical Control" switch.

A Tool for Everyone Who Has Professional Standards
Highest quality components, high-end protection systems and power reserves are what you would expect from this studio class product even under the most demanding circumstances. Its design makes the Neumann KH 80 DSP a versatile near-field monitor, which delivers professional-quality sound wherever you need it – in project and music studios, editing and broadcasting rooms or in outside broadcast vans. Some of our customers like it so much, they use the Neumann KH 80 DSP in their living rooms. Why not? After all, the Neumann KH 80 DSP delivers digital precision for a masterpiece of analog technology: your ears. The Neumann KH 750 DSP Subwoofer is the perfect complement to the Neumann KH 80 DSP.

Hundreds of Good Reasons from the Neumann Philosophy
The Neumann KH 80 DSP has also been developed true to the Neumann philosophy for monitor loudspeakers. Every component, every shape, every signal and every wave motion is a consequence of this philosophy. No form or component is there without reason. There are hundreds of tangible reasons built into the Neumann KH 80 DSP, which all stand for exceptionally pure and neutral sound. These include, for example, curvatures of the housing that reduce edge diffraction. Also included is the pistonic output of the bass driver which does not give rise to harmonic distortions, even with the highest sound peaks. Some of these reasons are obvious in the Neumann KH 80. Others Neumann prefers to keep to itself. But together, each can be heard – sound professionals in both large and small studios all around the world can testify to this.

    Amazing desktop monitor
    Tom Walsh

    After getting a pair of KH120/sub, We were so impressed that we decided to get a pair of the KH 80s for desktop playback. These guys get LOUD if you want it, but super detailed. Mixes done on them translate across multiple platforms. And they have DSP/RMC!
