Neumann has introduced a new powered studio monitor, the KH 80 DSP.
Coming out of its former Klein & Hummel line, the KH 80 DSP is different in that it adds digital signal processing, the company says.
The business end of the two-way KH 80 DSP is a four-inch composite sandwich cone bass driver with Extremely Linear Force Factor LF driver and a one-inch alloy fabric tweeter. An Elliptical Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide helps with wide horizontal and narrow vertical dispersion.
The onboard amplification consists of a 120 W low-frequency driver amplifier and a 70 W high-frequency driver amplifier. Double insulated electronics should prevent ground loops.
The heart of the onboard DSP section is an eight-band parametric which aids in calibrating the monitor’s response for the room it is in. Neumann Control software provides control for it and other useful tools such as delays
The KN 80 DSP can be seen at the Sennheiser/Neumann NAB Show booth, C2213.
