Neumann GmbH has introduced its KH 120 D nearfield studio monitor in the Middle East. This digital version of the audio expert’s KH 120 A monitor carries forward the compact design and excellent price-performance ratio of its predecessor while boasting an additional BNC input for AES/EBU or S/P-DIF formats (24-bit/192 kHz), enabling seamless digital workflow right up to playback on the studio monitor. The KH 120 D has been perfectly designed for tracking, mixing and mastering in music, broadcast, project and post-production studios.

Mig Cardamone, director of sales and marketing at Sennheiser Middle East, said, “The KH 120 A really set the industry benchmark and has been regularly voted as the ‘new reference’ in the two-way nearfield monitor sector. With the KH 120 D, we have widened this leadership to fully digital workflows and have extended the system’s capabilities to meet the demands of new applications and the latest trends in professional audio. Of course, while doing so, we have been very careful to maintain the same ‘honest’ sound and exceptional value that made the original system such a massive success in the audio market.”

A new feature added to the KH 120 D is a digital delay unit for both the analog and digital input channels. This allows the monitor to be used for tasks where time alignment is required.

If desired, the delay feature on the analog input can be bypassed in order to ensure the integrity of the analogue signal path, as with the KH 120 A.

The KH 120 range has been designed for use as near-field loudspeakers or as rear loudspeakers in larger multi-channel systems. The family of compact studio monitors incorporates the latest in acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies to ensure the most accurate sound reproduction possible.
