Neumann KH120 overview

  • 1Description

If you are looking for accurate, translatable monitors with a D/A capable-monitor control, check out the Neumann KH 120-A Monitor Pair and Dangerous Music Source Monitoring System Kit from B&H. It consists of a pair Neumann KH 120-A active studio monitors, a Dangerous Music Source digital/analog monitoring device, a pair of recoil stabilizer monitor decouplers, and a pair of 6-foot long XLR cables.

The KH 120-A monitors are capable of up to 160 watts of peak power output each, and feature 5.25-inch composite woofers and 1-inch tweeters. The Source monitoring device accepts both analog and digital inputs, allowing for connectivity to a variety of setups. It features 2 selectable speaker outputs, allowing you to select between the KH 120-As and a second pair of monitors. Additionally, it features dual 1/4" headphone outputs. The included XLR cables can be used to connect the KH 120-As to the Source, while the recoil stabilizer monitor decouplers help reduce unwanted vibration and resonance.

  • 2 x Neumann KH 120-A Studio Monitor

    The Neumann KH 120-A Studio Monitor combines a 1" titanium fabric dome tweeter powered by 50 W RMS (80 W peak) of analog amplification with a 5.25" long throw composite sandwich cone bass driver powered by 50 W RMS 80 W peak) analog amplification with dual front panel bass ports. The two speaker drivers are mounted in an elliptical mathematically modeled dispersion waveguide for smoother off-axis response and a more forgiving sound signature in different acoustical environments.

    The front panel is made from one piece without discontinuities to reduce diffraction with protective metal grills and the cabinet is made of magnetically shielded aluminum to reduce resonances, improve heat dissipation, and extend the operating lifetime of the unit. The monitor is suitable for professional tracking, mixing, and mastering applications in broadcast, project, and post-production studios.

    The system delivers a free field frequency response of 52 to 21,000 Hz with 4-position bass, low-mid, and treble acoustical controls for tailoring the response to different rooms and an input gain control from 0 to -15 dB. The front panel Neumann logo functions as an LED indicator for power and clip/limiting but can also be dimmed for light applications and for use when placed behind screens. A variety of wall, ceiling, truss, subwoofer, stand, and surface mounting options are available through a range of accessories (sold separately).

  • Dangerous Music SOURCE Digital/Analog Monitoring Device

    The Dangerous Music SOURCE Digital/Analog Monitoring Device is designed by mastering engineers to be a portable solution for monitoring the output stage of your signal chain. For I/O, the device features two combination XLR/TRS balanced inputs for analog input 1, an 1/8" mini stereo TRS jack for analog input 2, a digital USB 2.0 input, and an XLR AES/SPDIF input with AES/SPDIF pass through. One bank of selector buttons on the front of the device allow you to choose which of these four sources to send to the speakers and another bank of identical buttons allows you to select the input source for the unit's dual 1/4" headphone outputs. Separate stepped volume attenuators control the output levels for the speaker and headphone outputs.

    The front panel of the unit also features two buttons for choosing the output speakers. You can select from the balanced XLR left and right speaker 1 pair, the balanced left and right TRS speaker 2 pair, or both at the same time. Alternatively, you can use the second speaker output for a subwoofer channel. A third pair of left and right TRS outputs allows you to connect the device to an additional destination such as a CD burner, iPhone, cassette deck, or external meters.

    For playback, the device features two channels of custom built digital to analog conversion at up to 24-bit 192kHz resolution. Mastering grade conversion will enable you to make more accurate and precise decisions when mixing your music. It is powered by a 12V 2A power supply and comes in a compact form factor, designed to sit underneath a laptop or to be rack mounted using the optional 19" rack kit sold separately.

  • 2 x Auray IPRS-M Stabilizing Isolation Pad for Studio Monitors (Medium, Single)

    The medium IPRS-M Stabilizing Isolation Pad from Auray is a speaker decoupling system that is designed to tighten the response of your studio monitors by reducing reverberation and unwanted resonance, greatly improving your monitor speaker's performance. It is constructed of high-quality acoustic foam, a steel plate, and a thin layer of neoprene.

    The IPRS-M features high-density, open-cell foam that decouples your monitor from its resting surface by absorbing the monitor's vibrations, eliminating the transmission of speaker-cabinet vibration to the surface they are resting on. In addition to its decoupling capabilities, the precision-cut steel plate prevents back to front speaker cabinet motion (recoil), by creating a surface too heavy for the monitor's recoil to move. The non-slip neoprene layer helps prevent resonance of the steel plate and keeps the monitor securely in place atop the Stabilizing Isolation Pad.

    These three layers work together to prevent back-to-front speaker cabinet motion and eliminate the transmission of vibrations, resulting in a tighter and more accurate response, especially in the bottom end.

    Stabilizes speaker cabinet and eliminates back-to-front motion
    Isolates by preventing resonant coupling for greater depth of field
    Tightens up the bass response for improved accuracy and allows for a higher level of detail across the frequency spectrum
    Provides 3/4" "down fire" or "up fire" profile

  • 2 x Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 6' (1.8 m), Black

    The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (6') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.

    Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise
    Twin conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core
    24-AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity
