The Neumann KH 80 Active DSP Powered Studio Monitor is a 2-way active bi-amplified studio monitor featuring a DSP engine with network control, a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion Waveguide (MMD), an analog input and an extensive range of mounting hardware. This allows the loudspeaker to be used in diverse acoustical conditions, with any source equipment and in a wide variety of physical locations. 

The KH 80 Active DSP Powered Studio Monitor is a professional reference monitor representing the latest in acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies to ensure the most accurate sound reproduction possible. The KH 80 Active DSP is designed for use as a near-field monitor, as a front loudspeaker in small multi-channel systems, or as a rear loudspeaker in a compact multi-channel systems. It can be used in project and music studios, broadcast centers, OB vans, and post production studios for tracking, mixing, and mastering. It is also well suited for use in home studio environments.

The Perfect Sound of Mathematics at Work
The KH 80 DSP’s design is based on computer simulations that calculate with an accuracy that others do not match. Neumann's Mathematical Modeled Dispersion Waveguide (MMD) provides their studio series with a solid base for precise sound direction that stays absolutely unique. Doing your sums properly has never sounded so good.

The Biggest Variable is Your Room. Neumann Has the Solution
It might be a project studio, an outside broadcast van, or just a corner of a building: The room defines the sound. Surfaces and corners in the room cause interference, diffraction, reflection and refraction: all are forms of distortion. For a really true sound, you normally need expensive equipment plus plenty of time and expertise to align it correctly—or smart algorithms. Neumann's DSP engine optimizes the sound output, delivering quality way above price tag. And you do not need to be an expert use it. The KH 80 DSP is ready for Neumann.Control software, allowing you to align and control the monitor with a swipe of your finger or click of a mouse.

Professional Standards for Everyone
Highest-quality components, high-end protection systems and performance reserves are what you would expect from this studio class product. Its quality and design makes the KH 80 DSP a flexible near-field studio monitor, which delivers professional-quality sound wherever you need it. It can be used in studios, editing rooms or outside broadcast trucks. Some Neumann customers like it so much, they use KH 80 DSPs in their living rooms. And why not? Neumann's monitor delivers digital precision for a masterpiece of analog technology: your ears.
