Audio engineers, musicians, and producers in need of a quality studio monitor will be thrilled with the anthracite Neumann KH 120 II, 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 120 II utilizes two amplifiers (80W each) to power the 5.25" 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 and allows for room calibration using Neumann's revolutionary Automatic Monitor Alignment system. The MA 1 (sold separately) makes sure your DSP-powered monitors are optimally adapted to your room's characteristics and perfectly calibrated for your listening position. With the use of the latest acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies, the KH 120 II can be used in diverse acoustical conditions with any source equipment and in a wide variety of physical locations, ensuring accurate sound reproduction.

Key Features
  • High-precision drivers, Mathematically Modelled Dispersion (MMD) waveguide
  • Linear frequency response 39 Hz to 21 kHz (±3 dB)
  • Linear phase response 105 Hz to 16 kHz (±45°) with latency <2.6 ms
  • DSP engine allows for room adaptive calibration via Neumann’s MA 1
  • Razor-sharp imaging due to extremely low tolerances (±0.8 dB)
  • May be combined with other KH line speakers in immersive/surround setups
Neumann Accuracy, Serious Bass and Power
The KH 120 II is a powerful bi-amplified studio monitor with reference-class performance. Its 5.25" woofer in a bass-reflex cabinet provides stunning low-end and high-end SPL capability with undiminished clarity. DSP-controlled electronics ensure linear phase response and allow for room-adaptive calibration using Neumann's revolutionary MA 1 Automatic Monitor Alignment system.
What You Hear Is What You Get
The KH 120 II follows the same philosophy as all Neumann studio monitors: highest linearity, lowest distortion, no coloration, and perfect adaptability to any acoustic environment. It allows you to hear every nuance of your tracks. Once you eliminate the guesswork, mixing becomes so much faster and easier, not to mention more creative. It sounds amazing, but can you get away with that? Is that vocal bright or sibilant? Is it too much bass? The KH 120 II will tell you—honestly.
Ready for Your Room
  • Even the best loudspeaker only sounds as good as the acoustic environment allows. Neumann’s Mathematically Modeled Dispersion (MMD) waveguide guarantees a wide sweet spot and minimizes desk reflections. But the KH 150 goes much further—its internal DSP allows for room calibration using Neumann’s revolutionary Automatic Monitor Alignment system. 
  • The MA 1 (sold separately) makes sure your DSP-powered monitors are optimally adapted to your room’s characteristics and perfectly calibrated for your listening position. Even in acoustically treated rooms, this results in a huge improvement.
