Reference-class monitoring

The Neumann KH 120 II is a reference-class active studio monitor that has both a digital and an analogue output and brings with it a deeper bass response, a higher-definition sound, and an even more powerful DSP than its predecessor. The woofer and tweeter each have a dedicated Class D amplifier with a thermal limiter, and the near-field monitor also delivers an impressively neutral frequency response and outstanding impulse fidelity. Neumann's Mathematically Modelled Dispersion waveguide prevents the occurrence of non-linear distortion and creates a wide sweet spot that minimises sound reflection from solid surfaces like tabletops and mixing desks. The Neumann KH 120 II thus delivers a highly detailed acoustic image during the mixing process.

A flexible solution

The KH 120 II is equipped with a long-throw 5.25" woofer and a 1" tweeter, covering a frequency response of 44Hz to 21kHz. The speaker's frequency response is extremely linear with a maximum tolerance of ±3dB, and both drivers are equipped with dedicated RMS and peak limiters as well as overheat protection. When protection is active, the Neumann logo on the front glows solid red, and this can be dimmed using the MA 1 - Automatic Monitor Alignment software. The controls on the rear panel allow the user to reduce the input gain by up to 15dB and adjust the output level using the dedicated DIP switch. A parametric EQ section for adjustment to the acoustic properties of the room can in turn be found on the left of the rear panel.

For professional-level mixing

Neumann, a subsidiary of Sennheiser, has chiefly designed the KH 120 II for professional monitoring applications in recording studios and production trucks, and a wealth of experience from Klein + Hummel, a company acquired by Neumann in 2009, has gone into its development. Thanks to its extremely linear frequency response with a roll-off at around 60Hz, the KH 120 II will help sound engineers to achieve a high level of precision in their mixing and mastering processes, both in music and post-production applications. With outputs of 145W and 100W for the woofer and tweeter, respectively, the monitor can produce a maximum sound pressure level (SPL) of 116.8dB. Should the room in which it is installed be acoustically less than ideal, the parametric EQ on the rear panel can easily be used to shape the sound accordingly, and the speaker has a digital S/PDIF input and output on the rear panel for integration into an audio network.

About Neumann

Georg Neumann GmbH was founded in Berlin in 1928 - and is certainly one of the most famous brands of microphones in the world. However, this is not the company's only sphere of activity. For many years, the versatile inventor and pioneer Georg Neumann was also involved with vinyl record cutting machines and the development of rechargeable batteries. The technology he developed is still the basis for this now crucial and rapidly expanding market. What is more, for many years the company built highly personalised sound control systems for broadcast studios/theatres and concert halls, and for several years also studio monitors. In 1991, Neumann became part of the Sennheiser group of companies, and in 1999 was the first German company to receive the Technical Grammy for their overall technical achievements.

No expertise necessary

Users who are looking for an even deeper bass response can add the Neumann KH 750 DSP subwoofer, which is available separately, to their setup. What is more, connecting the company's analogue monitors, such as the Neumann KH 120 A and the Neumann KH 310 A, gives them access to the aforementioned MA 1 monitor alignment system, a software-based programme that uses a dedicated measurement microphone and state-of-the art amplitude and phase correction algorithms that have been developed specifically for Neumann monitors in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS). With the help of this system, the sound of the monitoring setup can be quickly and easily configured to suit the acoustic properties of the monitoring space and achieve the best possible results - no specialist knowledge needed. Users wishing to carry out more complex configurations can in turn use the Neumann.Control iPad app.

Schon genial, aber...

Monitore von Neumann zu dem Preis? Mit den Eckdaten? Her damit!

Die Monitore selbst überzeugen sofort in jeglicher Hinsicht. Gerade die Staffelung im Bassbereich erstaunt, eben dieses Thema ist heutzutage ja stets neuralgisch. Hat man Material, das unter 40 Hz geht, z.B. Orgel oder auch 5-Saiter Bass, sollte man vielleicht weitere Überlegungen anstellen, wobei man sich dabei zweifellos fragen sollte, wie tief eigentlich eine durchschnittliche Consumer-Anlage kommt.

Diese Monitore machen von Anfang an einen sehr treuen und verlässlichen Eindruck. Richtig gut. Damit kann man arbeiten. Als Midfields sind sie durchaus auch zu gebrauchen. Power ist da.

Die Software für das Einmessen mittels MA 1 findet die Monitore mittlerweile auch. Da geht dann schon noch einiges, vor allem, wenn die akustischen Verhältnisse nicht so besonders sind, und das ist bei mir gerade der Fall.

Die Software kann sich aber Einmessungs-Ergebnisse als Profile merken und die Monitore damit bei Bedarf wieder füttern. Bevorzugt man z.B. in manchen Phasen zwei Computer-Displays, die dann womöglich im Wege sind, kann man auch daraufhin einmessen. Das Ergebnis ist dann immerhin brauchbar.

Aber Vorsicht! Beim Einmessen wird es schon ein wenig lauter... Ist ja auch verständlich.
