Neumann KH 120 II - Pair Bundle Set incl. MA 1 Measurement Microphone & Automatic Monitor Alignment System

2-way studio monitors & Monitor Alignment System

Neumann KH120 II Pair & MA 1 – Bundle

Neumann KH 120 II (Pair)

Neumann’s acclaimed studio monitor taken to a new level with deeper bass, higher resolution, and DSP power.

  • Linear frequency response 44 Hz … 21 kHz (±3 dB)
  • Linear phase response 120 Hz … 16 kHz (±45°) with latency <2.6 ms
  • DSP engine for improved performance and automatic room alignment
  • Deep low end down to 44 Hz and high SPL capability in a small format
  • Analog and S/PDIF connectivity, optional: AES67
  • High-precision drivers, Mathematically Modelled Dispersion™ (MMD™) waveguide
  • Razor sharp imaging due to extremely low tolerances (±0.5 dB)
  • May be combined with other KH line speakers in immersive or surround setups.

Next Generation Monitoring

The KH 120 II is based on the same concept as its acclaimed predecessor but completely re-engineered for improved performance in all parameters: deeper bass, higher SPL capability and even better resolution. Internal DSP power allows for phase linear crossovers and room adaptive alignment via Neumann’s revolutionary MA 1 Automatic Alignment.

Neumann MA 1

Neumann’s Automatic Alignment is a dedicated tool for stereo sets of KH 80 DSP monitors with or without the KH 750 DSP as well as two non DSP-based KH-Line monitors connected to the analog outputs of a KH 750 DSP subwoofer. Unlike conventional correction software it is an integrated solution with novel algorithms, jointly developed with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS) specifically for Neumann studio monitors. No plug-in or special audio driver is required: Alignment data is stored and processed within the DSP-powered monitors themselves. As a unique benefit, the software not only optimizes the amplitude response but also optimizes the phase. This provides highest accuracy in terms of tonality and impulse reproduction.

HOW IT WORKS

In a first step, acoustic data of the listening environment is gathered in a guided process. No special acoustic knowledge is required. Simply connect your Neumann monitors to the outputs of your audio interface or monitor controller. Additionally, your DSP-based KH-line monitors must also be connected to your computer’s ethernet port. For multiple connections, a standard ethernet switch will do. 

Now plug the measurement microphone into your microphone input. This microphone was specifically developed for this software and is individually calibrated by it. The software will guide you through the measurement process.

From the measured data, the software ascertains the room’s acoustic properties. The individual correction parameters are generated according to a room-specific target curve calculated by the software. Neumann's decades of experience in calibrating monitoring systems in studio control rooms has been incorporated into this process. Of course, you can modify the target curve to your needs.

Additionally, the alignment process ensures an optimal summation in the low frequencies when a subwoofer is used. 

All resulting correction parameters are stored and processed in the DSP-powered monitors. So there is nothing to worry about anymore, no plug-ins, no driver issues. And no additional cables, either: Once the alignment process is completed, the ethernet connections are not required anymore.

Using the KH 750 DSP subwoofer, stereo sets of analog KH-Line monitors, too, can be used with the Automatic Monitor Alignment Software. The KH 750 DSP has enough processing power to align the entire system including the two analog loudspeakers connected to its outputs. Additionally, KH 120, KH 310, and KH 420 loudspeakers profit from phase linearization of their built-in crossover filters! The result is increased clarity, a dry bass, and a time-correct, more accurate depiction of reverbs and acoustic spaces.

THE FUTURE

The MA 1 Automatic Monitor Alignment is the beginning of a new era in monitoring. Starting with the current version, which delivers outstanding acoustic results for stereo setups, the range of software functions will be expanded step by step with updates.
