Neumann.Berlin has expanded its line of reference studio monitors with the release of KH 150, a bi-amplified, DSP-controlled loudspeaker that features the same high-resolution tweeter as all Neumann studio monitors and a newly developed 6.5-inch woofer with ultra-low distortion and high SPL capability.

Despite its compact form factor, the KH 150 boasts an exceptionally flat frequency response from 39Hz to 21kHz (±3dB) and is suited to applications spanning broadcast and music production, including styles requiring powerful low-end and/or elevated listening levels such as urban music, EDM and film scoring.

Neumann KH 150‘The KH 150 closes the gap between the KH 120 and the KH 310, but it does far more than that’, explains Portfolio Manager Stephan Mauer. ‘Its internal DSP engine offers many benefits such as a phase linearised crossover and a new level in tonal consistency. The KH 150 is made to extremely low tolerances of no more than ±0.8dB, and you can hear it.’

The use of digital electronics also allows the KH 150 to be calibrated with Neumann’s MA 1 Automatic Monitor Alignment. ‘The KH 150 follows the same philosophy as all Neumann studio monitors – highest linearity, lowest distortion, no coloration, and perfect adaptability to any acoustic environment’, says Neumann CEO, Ralf Oehl. ‘In our pursuit of sonic perfection, we not only optimise every parameter of the loudspeaker itself, we also include the greatest variable: the listening environment. The KH 150’s DSP engine perfectly integrates with Neumann’s game-changing MA 1 Automatic Monitor Alignment for best possible sound in any room.’

In addition, the KH 150 is extremely energy efficient, with a patent pending amplifier technology that combines high audio performance with class-D energy efficiency. Although the KH 150’s amplifiers deliver up to 145W to the woofer and 100W to the tweeter, they only consume 17W at idle. Auto-standby reduces power consumption to 0.3W when the KH 150 has not been used for a while, but can be deactivated.

The KH 150 sports both analogue and S/PDIF digital inputs. It will also be available in an AES67 variant with redundant AES67 audio network ports that are fully compliant with broadcast standards such as ST 2110, ST 2022-7 redundancy, and RAVENNA. At the same time, the KH 150 AES67 is compatible with DANTE-generated AES67 network streams.

The KH 150 and KH 150 AES67 will be available in Q3 2022. List prices: KH 150 €1,650/US$1,750 ; KH 150 AES67 €1,895/US$1,999.
