Neumann KH 150 AES67 Studio Monitor Anthracite


The KH 150 is the perfect new addition to Neumann’s monitor portfolio, not only does it close a gap in the KH line, but it also comes with massive power reserves. Its new 6.5” woofer, which Neumann meticulously developed over a period of three years, offers higher reproduction accuracy than anything currently on the market. With a 20-litre bass reflex cabinet, the KH 150 delivers a maximum SPL of 118 dB at 1 meter, and deep bass response down to 39 Hz.

As you have come to expect from the more recent models of the KH line, the new model also is DSP driven and exhibits all the superior performance features that digital signal processing has to offer.

 

Neumann Accuracy, Serious Bass and Power

The KH 150 is a powerful bi-amplified studio monitor with reference-class performance. Its 6.5” woofer in a bass reflex cabinet provides stunning low-end and high-end SPL capability with undiminished clarity. DSP-controlled electronics ensure linear phase response and allow for room-adaptive calibration using Neumann’s revolutionary MA 1 Automatic Monitor Alignment system.

 

What You Hear Is What You Get

The KH 150 follows the same philosophy as all Neumann studio monitors: highest linearity, lowest distortion, no colouration, and perfect adaptability to any acoustic environment. It allows you to hear every nuance of your tracks. Once you eliminate the guesswork, mixing becomes so much faster and easier, not to mention more creative: Sounds amazing, but can I get away with that? Is that vocal bright or sibilant? Is it too much bass? The KH 150 will tell you. Honestly.

 

One Bigger

What differentiates the KH 150 from its smaller siblings is its deeper bass response down to 39 Hz. That’s almost as low as the larger KH 310, which is made possible by the KH 150’s novel 6.5” high-precision woofer in a carefully designed bass reflex cabinet. The KH 150 is thus ideally suited to urban music, EDM, film scoring, and all styles that require extended low-end and/or elevated listening levels. Thanks to powerful amplifiers (145 W/100 W) and sophisticated protection limiters, no clarity is lost even at high SPLs. But the KH 150 is also a true universalist, working just as well for everything from rock to classical music, broadcast applications and voice-over work.

The KH 150 has an exceptionally linear frequency response from 39 Hz to 21 kHz (±3 dB). Not only that, but it also linearizes the phase response! This translates to clear mids with astonishing transparency and extreme accuracy in the time domain, i.e. precise impulse reproduction and finely resolved reverbs. This is made possible by DSP-controlled electronics that allow for sophisticated crossovers and avoid the phase distortion caused by analogue filters. The internal DSP also achieves new standards in tonal consistency, as the KH 150 is made to extremely low tolerances of no more than ± 0.8 dB! And you can hear it, too: the stereo imaging is razor-sharp.

 

Ready for Your Room

Even the best loudspeaker only sounds as good as the acoustic environment allows. Neumann’s Mathematically Modelled Dispersion™ (MMD™) waveguide guarantees a wide sweet spot and minimizes desk reflections. But the KH 150 goes much further: its internal DSP allows for room calibration using Neumann’s revolutionary Automatic Monitor Alignment system. The MA 1 (sold separately) makes sure your DSP-powered monitors are optimally adapted to your room’s characteristics and perfectly calibrated for your listening position. Even in acoustically treated rooms, this results in a huge improvement.

 

AES67 - Audio over IP

Additionally, the KH 150 AES67 variant offers integrated redundant AES67 audio network ports that are fully compliant with broadcast standards such as ST 2110, ST 2022-7 redundancy, and RAVENNA. The KH 150 AES67 is also compatible with DANTE®-generated AES67 network streams.

 

Energy Efficient

Neumann engineers worked painstakingly to develop a patent-pending amplifier technology that combines superior audio performance with Class D energy efficiency. Although the KH 150’s amplifiers deliver up to 145 W to the 6.5” woofer and 100 W to the 1” tweeter, they only consume 17 W at idle. And an optional auto-standby mode can be enabled to reduce power consumption to 0.3 W when the KH 150 is not in use.
