Neumann Launches Digital Version of its KH 120 Nearfield Studio Monitor
Enhanced Version of KH 120 Features Digital Inputs, Time Delay Compensation
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.Premium audio brand
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.
