Neumann KH 310 A L G Active Studio Monitor (Left)

Analog 3-way near-field monitor Left version

The KH 310 is designed for use as a near-field monitor, as a front loudspeaker in mid-sized multi-channel systems, or as a rear loudspeaker in a larger multi-channel system. It can be used in project, music, broadcast centers, OB vans, and post production studios for tracking, mixing, and mastering.

The Neumann KH 310 is a dense Active Studio Monitor intended and constructed for use as a near or rear field loudspeaker as part of a multi-channel setup. The speaker enjoys expansive headroom analogue input, versatile acoustical analogue control and a wide-ranging mounting range. The Neumann KH 310 is one of the most commanding and flexible Active Studio Monitors available to industry professionals.

The KH 310’s Elliptical Mathematically Modelled Dispersion (MMD) waveguide technology provides a much slicker and circular off-axis response, permitting its use in a far more varied array of acoustic settings.  Combined with the KH 310’s modern hardware mounting options, adaptability and variety are clearly situated front and centre in Neumann’s designs.

The class AB amplifiers in the KH 310, its huge analogue headroom and long throw bass driver all total up to a hardy, reliable active studio monitor well suited in all applications for broadcast, music, post-production and project studio applications.  Its tough manufacturing and build-quality which includes a titanium fabric dome, metal grille and compact aluminium cabinet lend mean that it is equally at home in a studio environment or outside in a broadcast truck.

The Neumann KH 310 offers all the power and acoustic quality professionals have come to expect from a high-quality near-field monitor, as well as the additional versatility they might not.
