Neumann's reputation for audio quality was built on their iconic microphones, and has long been second to none. The Neumann KH 120 II powered nearfield studio monitors, descended from the legendary line of K&H monitors, are the second-generation evolution of the award-winning KH 120. These advanced nearfields utilize leading-edge technology and materials science to deliver stunning sound quality in a compact package.

Audio Perfection Driven by Science

How does Neumann get such accuracy?  It's science, pure and simple. From the physics of the MMD (Mathematically Modeled Dispersion) waveguide, which minimizes desk reflections while delivering an exceptionally wide sweet spot, to the superior resonance control and rigidity of the molded polycarbonate front and rear panels, the KH 120 II utilizes solid science and modern materials to create a reference monitor that provides incredible accuracy from high-precision drivers.

Loud When You Want, Energy Efficient When You Need

The Neumann KH 120 II features a patent-pending amplifier design engineered to combine outstanding audio performance with energy efficiency. With 145W to the 5" low-frequency driver and 100W to the 1" high-frequency driver, it's child's play for them to put out more than ample levels for any nearfield application, while only consuming 17W when idling. The auto-standby mode drops power consumption to less than a third of a watt when the monitors have been unused for a period of time, enabling instant access while saving power.

Advanced DSP for Optimal Accuracy

DSP control has become a major feature in many advanced reference monitors, and the DSP integration in the KH 120 II is superb. The rear panel features basic adjustments for bass, low-mid and high frequency for basic room tuning, plus the ability to switch to network control from the optional MA 1 Automatic Monitor Alignment software. From the MA 1 software, the level of possible adjustments is greatly expanded to allow much more detailed room tuning for your specific acoustic environment, as well as customizing standby mode and other features.

Your Choice of Analog or Digital Source

Another advantage of the KH 120 II is its ability to accept both analog and S/PDIF digital inputs, enabling the user to keep everything from input to output completely in the digital domain while maintaining compatibility with analog systems. No matter what signal source you use, the Neumann KH 120 II compact nearfield monitors are ready to help you get the best possible mixes.
