The Neumann KH 80 DSP enables filtering functions and room adjustment options, which brings reference level reproduction to any environment. Even with its compact design, it has extraordinary reserve capacity - as well as the classic strengths of the Neumann monitor philosophy: clearly defined dispersion angle, distortion-free design and sophisticated material selection.

Highest quality components, high-end protection systems and power reserves are what you would expect from this studio class product even under the most demanding circumstances. Its design makes the KH 80 DSP a versatile near-field monitor, which delivers professional-quality sound wherever you need it, in project and music studios, editing and broadcasting rooms or in outside broadcast vans. Some of our customers like it so much, they use the KH 80 DSP in their living rooms. Why not, after all, the KH 80 DSP delivers digital precision for a masterpiece of analog technology, your ears.

The KH 80 DSP has also been developed true to the Neumann philosophy for monitor loudspeakers. Every component, every shape, every signal and every wave motion is a consequence of this philosophy. No form or component is there without reason. There are hundreds of tangible reasons built into the KH 80 DSP, which all stand for exceptionally pure and neutral sound. These include, for example, curvatures of the housing that reduce edge diffraction. Also included is the pistonic output of the bass driver which does not give rise to harmonic distortions, even with the highest sound peaks. Some of these reasons are obvious in the KH 80. Others Neumann prefers to keep to itself. But together, each can be heard, sound professionals in both large and small studios all around the world can testify to this.

  • Setup:
  • 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 9 loudspeakers
  • Identify loudspeakers on the network that are in the room
  • Assign the identified loudspeakers to positions in the room
  • Align:
  • Guided Alignment: A process where you are asked very simple questions about the room and the loudspeaker position, and then the app adjusts the response of each loudspeaker accordingly
  • Manual Alignment: 8-band fully parametric equalizer for expert users. Expert users have complete freedom to adjust an 8-band parametric equalizer, levels and delays in each loudspeaker as they wish. Manual Alignment can also be used to edit Guided Alignments in a more detailed way
  • Operate:
  • System and alignment selection
  • Volume control, preset levels, dim, mute all
  • Groups, solos, mutes
  • Other system settings such as delay, standby level, and logo brightness
  • In-house simulated 1" tweeter with alloy fabric dome
