Professional Monitoring Package
Neumann - 'KH 80 DSP' Monitors & 'MA1'

4K Recording

FINE TUNE ANY STUDIO MONITORING ENVIRONMENT!Neumann’s Monitoring Alignment Kit is a monitor calibration system developed alongside the Fraunhofer Institute to deliver perfectly matched correction for the most optimal monitoring results. Whether it’s for your home studio, professional studio, broadcast purposes or studio control room, the Neumann monitoring calibration system can do a job for you!

Included is a pair of the spectacular ‘KH 80 DSP’, powerful two-way active bi-amped monitors featuring a unique DSP engine with wireless network control, and by using the ‘MA1’ monitor alignment tool, you can fine tune your room/studio to bask in optimally tuned monitoring heaven!

what's included? • Neumann 'KH 80 DSP' Nearfield Monitors
• Neumann 'MA1' Automatic Monitor Alignment

DSP-Controlled Near-Field Monitor

Neumann - 'KH 80 DSP'

'NUMBER 1 FOR 0 COMPROMISES'The KH 80 DSP two-way active bi-amplified monitor features a DSP engine with network control, a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion™ Waveguide (MMD™), an analogue input and an extensive range of mounting hardware. This allows the loudspeaker to be used in diverse acoustical conditions, with any source equipment and in a wide variety of physical locations. The KH 80 represents the latest in acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies to ensure the most accurate sound reproduction possible.

The KH 80 DSP is designed for use as a near-field monitor, as a front loudspeaker in small multi-channel systems, or as a rear loudspeaker in a compact multi-channel systems. It can be used in project and music studios, broadcast centers, OB vans, and post production studios for tracking, mixing, and mastering. It is also well suited for use in domestic environments.

The Perfect Sound of Higher Mathematics at Work

Neumann - 'KH 80 DSP'

unmatched accuracyNeumann’s expert developers have vast knowledge on each nuance, every angle and wave reflection of the KH 80 DSP. The sound is so ‘pure’ because each sound wave is being directed with such accuracy. Neumann’s KH 80 DSP design is built around computer simulations which calculate with such precision and accuracy, no other manufacturer can claim to do the same.

The ‘Mathematical Modeled Dispersion Waveguide’ (MMD) hands the studio series a seriously strong base for accurate sound direction which remains unique. Maths has never sounded so good.

The Mathematical Modeled Dispersion Waveguide (MMD™) provides the studio series with a solid base for precise sound direction that remains unique. Maths has never sounded so good.

professional standardsThe KH 80 DSP uses the highest-grade components, alongside high-grade protection systems and power reserves, all of which you’d expect to find in a monitor in this class. By design, the KH 80 DSP is an innovative near-field monitor, fully capable of delivering pro sound quality wherever it’s required – in project studios, high-end studios, editing and broadcasting rooms.

‘Nuemann Control’ App

Neumann - 'KH 80 DSP'

for ios devicesWherever your studio is, whether it’s an outside broadcast van, or the spare bedroom, one thing remains true: The room defines the sound. All surfaces, corners, fitting cause sound waves to behave differently, diffraction, reflection and refraction. To achieve the truest sound, without physical acoustic influence, you usually need to spend a fortune on ‘high-end’ gear or room treatment. Nuemann offer a cheaper, easier way, through the ‘Nuemann Control iPad’ app.

The free to download app adapts the KH 80 DSP to whichever room you choose to use it in, showcasing quality you’d expect to find in monitors many times more expensive. The best news? Neumann’s patented ‘Guided Alignment’ means that you needn’t be a sound design expert to adapt the system to your environment!

Neumann - 'MA 1'
Automatic Monitor Alignment

neumann ma 1

A New Era In MonitoringThe Neumann MA 1 Automatic Monitor Alignment offers the best possible sound quality in any room, from home studios to professional control rooms by using the individually calibrated measurement microphone, your acoustic environment is analysed in a guided process.

Advanced calibration algorithms, jointly developed with the world's leading institute in audio processing, Fraunhofer IIS, ensures an optimally adapted amplitude and phase correction for consistent and exact monitoring.

Consistent & Reliable Monotioring

neumann ma1

Unique QualitiesThe Automatic Alignment is a purpose-built tool for stereo sets of KH 80 DSP monitors with or without the KH 750 DSP as well as two non-DSP-based KH-Line monitors connected to the analogue outputs of a KH 750 DSP subwoofer.

Unlike the usual correction software, it is an integrated solution with novel algorithms, jointly created with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS) specifically for Neumann studio monitors.

No plug-in or special audio driver is needed: Alignment data is stored and processed within the DSP-powered monitors themselves. As a unique benefit, the software not only optimizes the amplitude response but it optimizes the phase too. This gives you the best accuracy in terms of tonality and impulse reproduction.

How It Works

neumann ma1

Completely Eliminating Potential IssuesIn most cases, acoustic data of the listening environment is gathered in a guided process. No additional acoustic knowledge is required, just connect your Neumann monitors to the outputs of your audio interface or monitor controller. Additionally, your DSP-based KH-line monitors must also be connected to your computer’s ethernet port. For multiple connections, a standard ethernet switch would work.

After that, plug the measurement microphone into your microphone input. This microphone was specifically developed for this software and is individually calibrated by it. The software will help you through the measurement process.

From the measured data, the software ascertains the room’s acoustic properties. The individual correction parameters are made according to a room-specific target curve calculated by the software. Neumann's decades of experience in calibrating monitoring systems in studio control rooms has been incorporated into this process. Obviously, you can change the target curve to your needs.

Additionally, the alignment process guarantees an optimal summation in the low frequencies when a subwoofer is used. Resulting correction parameters are stored and processed in the DSP-powered monitors. There is no need to worry anymore, no plug-ins, driver issues or additional cables. Once the alignment process is finished, the ethernet connections are no longer required.

Better Performance & More ClarityUsing the KH 750 DSP subwoofer, stereo sets of analog KH-Line monitors, too, can be used with the Automatic Monitor Alignment Software. The KH 750 DSP has enough processing power to align the whole system including the two analog loudspeakers connected to its outputs.

The KH 120, KH 310, and KH 420 loudspeakers also profit from phase linearization of their built-in crossover filters! The result is more clarity, a dry bass, and a time-correct, increased accurate reppresentation of reverbs and acoustic spaces.
