Neumann 509138 Overview

Equip your studio with a precisely tuned listening system with the Neumann Monitor Alignment Kit 2, which provides two gray KH 80 DSP studio monitors and an MA 1 measurement microphone. Neumann's included calibration software, developed with Fraunhofer IIS, allows you to create a room-specific profile that handles frequency, time-alignment, and amplitude issues inherent to your monitoring environment. After running the software with the included measurement mic, your KH-series stereo monitoring setup should be optimized to give you the ideal response for critical listening, mixing, post, and more.

Neumann MA 1 Monitor Alignment Microphone and Calibration System

The Neumann MA 1 Monitor Alignment Microphone and Calibration System is designed to help engineers, musicians, and producers get more accurate and sonically consistent mixes from their Neumann KH 80 DSP monitors or non-DSP KH-Series monitors when used with the KH 750 DSP subwoofer. The system uses an omnidirectional measurement mic and a downloadable software for Mac and Windows with Fraunhofer IIS algorithms to calibrate and adjust the phase and amplitude of the speakers to compensate for room imperfections.

The system is easy to use; simply connect the balanced outputs of your audio interface or monitor controller to your KH monitors. Connect the ethernet ports of your DSP-based monitors into a network switcher (available separately) and then route the switcher output into your computer. Plug the calibration mic into a mic input on your interface (48V phantom power is required) and follow the calibration process in your software. An SG105 mic clip is included to mount the microphone to a stand.

The MA 1 software algorithms use the measurements to adjust the speaker settings to a room-specific target curve that compensates for the room's acoustic flaws. All the correction parameters are stored in the DSP speaker, so it's always there without having to worry about plug-ins and driver issues. In addition, once calibrated, you won't need the ethernet connection.

As mentioned, you can also calibrate non-DSP KH monitors, as long as you are also using a KH 750 DSP subwoofer. The KH 750 DSP has enough processing power to align the entire system, including the two analog speaker connected its outputs. The KH 120, KH 310, and KH 420 loudspeakers benefit from having the linerization of their built-in crossovers for more clarity, a tighter bass, and more accurate time correction.

Compatible DSP Loudspeakers
The KH 80 DSP loudspeakers and the KH 750 DSP subwoofer are network-enabled and can be controlled directly by the software
Compatible Analog Loudspeakers
The following loudspeakers are not network-enabled and need to be connected via a network-enabled subwoofer in order to be included in the system setup: KH 120 A, KH 120 D, KH 310 A, KH 310 D, KH 420/KH 420 + DIM 1

Neumann KH 80 DSP 4" + 1" Active 2-Way Studio Monitor (Gray, Single)

The gray Neumann KH 80 DSP is a 2-way active studio monitor well suited for near-field monitoring and multichannel setups in music studios, broadcast centers and vans, as well as home studios and desktop audio applications. The KH 80 utilizes two amplifiers (120W and 70W) to power the 4" woofer and 1" tweeter respectively, an onboard DSP engine, a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide (MMD), an analog input, and an extensive range of optional mounting hardware. The DSP function is accessed via a standard IP network connection that allows the monitoring system to be controlled using the Neumann.Control app, which runs on a Windows/Mac computer or iOS/Android tablet. With the use of the latest acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies, the KH 80 can be used in diverse acoustical conditions with any source equipment and in a wide variety of physical locations, ensuring accurate sound reproduction.

  • Setup:
    • 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 9 loudspeakers
    • Identify loudspeakers on the network that are in the room
    • Assign the identified loudspeakers to positions in the room
