At the NAB 2014 Show in Las Vegas Neumann announced the launch of its first digital studio monitor: the KH 120 D, which is is designed for use as a near-field loudspeaker or as a rear loudspeaker in larger multichannel systems. The KH 120 D is suited for tracking, mixing and mastering applications in music, broadcast, project and post-production studios, and is based on the KH 120 A small format studio monitor launched in 2010.
The KH 120 D is on display at the Neumann booth at the 2014 NAB Show in booth #C3217 and the company states that it will ship the KH 120 D this summer.
The KH 120 D uses the latest in acoustic and electronic simulation technologies and is equipped with an additional BNC input for AES/EBU or S/PDIF formats (24-bit/192 kHz).
The KH 120 D also features digital delay for both analog and digital inputs, enabling the monitor to be used for demanding tasks requiring time alignment. With a stated maximum delay of more than 400 ms, the KH 120 D is able to seamlessly address audio/video synchronization issues, or simply manage time delay compensation in situations where space constraints preclude equidistant positioning of loudspeakers.
It features a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide (MMD), flexible acoustical controls, analog Class-A/B amplifiers, various input formats (analog and digital) and an extensive range of mounting hardware.
