Product Description

Details

The Neumann KH 120 A is a compact Active Studio Monitor designed for use as a near-field loudspeaker or a rear loudspeaker as part of a multi-channel setup.  Armed to the teeth with large headroom analog input, flexible acoustical analog control and an extensive mounting range, the Neumann KH 120 A is one of the most powerful and versatile Active Studio Monitors on the market.

The class AB amplifiers found in the KH 120 A, its large analog headroom and long throw bass driver all add up to a very solid active studio monitor that is ideal across the board for broadcast, music, post-production and project studio applications.  Its robust design and build-quality including titanium fabric dome, metal grille and compact aluminum cabinet lend itself perfectly to be placed either in a studio environment or in an outside broadcast truck.

 

The Neumann KH 120 A – Versatile and punchy!

Neumann’s Elliptical Mathematically Modelled Dispersion (MMD) waveguide found in the KH 120 A gives users a far smoother and rounder off-axis response, allowing for use in much wider range of acoustic environments.  Coupled with the fact that the KH 120 A comes with new hardware mounting options, flexibility and diversity have really been at the forefront of Neumann’s thinking when they put together the design for this incredibly compact and lightweight monitor.

Weighing just over 6 kg, the Neumann KH 120 A brings all the power and sonic quality you would expect from a high-quality near-field monitor with added versatility you might not.
