More about the KH 80 DSP

The perfect sound of mathematics at work

We know every nuance, every surface and every angle of the KH 80 DSP. It sounds so pure, because we are directing every soundwave so precisely.

The KH 80 DSP’s design is based on computer simulations that calculate with an accuracy that others do not match. Our Mathematical Modeled Dispersion Waveguide (MMD™) provides our 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. We have 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. Our 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 our upcoming software Neumann.Control – which will be available for tablets and computers starting from mid-2017, 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 of our customers like it so much, they use KH 80 DSPs in their living rooms. And why not? Our latest monitor delivers digital precision for a masterpiece of analog technology: your ears.

Reviews

“We could not believe our ears when we played the first piece of music on the KH 80 DSPs.”

 

“… what we heard coming from those small speakers was a well-balanced sound image, linear down to the low bass regions, with excellent resolution in the important mid frequencies; silky, crystal clear highs; and a powerful, yet clearly defined low-end. In terms of volume, too, the little ones were truly impressive, never showing any signs of weakness. Even at high volume the sound image remained very linear and free from audible resonances at particular frequencies.”

 

“The ideal monitor speakers for any home or project studio with professional ambitions.”

 

SOUNDCHECK 8/2017

 

 

“The KH 80 DSP speakers sound familiar and trustworthy right from the start. Despite their compact cabinets, they sound astonishingly rich. Those petite Neumanns surprise with a deep bottom end!”

 

“The spatial imaging and precise sense of depth ought to satisfy the demands of even discerning professionals, which is exceedingly remarkable and quite possibly unprecedented in this price range.”

 

“Whoever is in the market for nearfield monitors should definitely audition Neumann’s KH 80 DSP.”
