Neumann KH 120 A active 2-way monitors

A compact active two system perfect for smaller rooms or portable rigs. Trustworthy and reliable, these have begun to fill the gap left by the ubiquitous Yamaha NS10 for console or desk mounted monitors for mixing or reference. Probably the best performing sub £1000 speakers.

The Neumann KH 120 is 2-way nearfield studio monitor that can also be used in larger, multi channel / surround sound monitor systems.

Using the same technology as the larger Neumann KH 310 A's but modelled into a much smaller format while preserving the quality of the sound. This makes the KH120 an ideal choice for mixing at lower levels or for situations where larger studios monitors cannot be used but the need for clarity and detail is essential. It would also be good as a reference monitor in larger recording studios.

The KH 120's uses Neumanns Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide and flexible acoustical controls for Bass, low mid and treble and input gain controls so you can tweak the sound and find the best sound for your room.

With its analogue class A/B amplifiers, a large headroom analogue input and different hardware mounting options (sold separetely) provides the user with the best versatility over a wide range of acoustic conditions and location placement.

Come and listen to the Neumann KH-120A and lots of other monitors in our acoustically designed demonstration room, call or email to make an appointment.
