The left sided Neumann KH 310 D - Active Studio Monitor with Digital Input and Delay combines a 1" titanium fabric dome tweeter, a 3" fabric dome midrange with a neodymium magnet, and an 8.25" long throw composite sandwich woofer with an extremely linear force factor and a ribbed surround, all powered by class AB analog amplification.
The drivers were designed using modeling techniques to minimize non-linear (inter-modulation) distortion, and each driver has an independent thermo limiter to protect the voice coils. It can be used as a near-field monitor, as a front loudspeaker in mid-sized multi-channel, or as a rear loudspeaker in a larger multi-channel system for project, music, broadcast centers, OB vans, and post production studios for tracking, mixing, and mastering.
The speaker features both analog and daisy-chainable digital BNC I/O for flexible digital inter-connectivity (24 bit, 192 kHz, AES3, and S/P-DIF). It also features digital Lipsync delay (from 0 to 10/12 frames) for aligning audio and video signals as well as digital time-of-flight delay (from 0 to 400 ms) to compensate for different listening distances.
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 system delivers a free field frequency response of 34 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 as well as transportation options through a range of accessories (sold separately).
