Neumann KH 120 A overview

  • 1Description

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).

    Neumann KH 120 A reviews

    KH 120-A Studio Monitor is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Studio Monitors - a bargain at this price! I have been using a pair of these monitors along with a Neumann KH 805 subwoofer for several months now. They are very good. They will play quite loud for their size. I consider them to be a bargain at this price. They integrate well with the sub. The transition to the sub is audibly seamless. Every mix I have made on these has translated well to other speakers, and this is important! As usual, B&H is the leader in customer service!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, Neutral Monitors I have been using these as my main Studio Monitors, along with a Neumann 805 Subwoofer, for several months now. They are in a relatively small control room. They are excellent, very neutral, sufficiently detailed but not overly etched, and can play amazing loud for as small as they are, especially with the Sub. They integrate well with the 805 Sub, and sometimes we forget it is there - until somebody hits a mike stand. All the mixes I have made on these have translated well to other systems. This is very important! It was easy to set the three speakers up so that the transition from the 805 to the 120s is audibly seamless. (This is not always the case with some speakers!) As usual, B&H provides quick, no hassle ordering, free shipping, and customer service that sets the industry standard.
