    New Top-Brand Gear From An Authorized US Dealer

    You get top-brand gear, new from the factory, from an authorized US dealer. Our products are shipped from the vendor to our warehouse, and then from the warehouse to you. There is no detour through a retail store, where the boxes are opened, the products put on display, and then sold as leftovers. When you shop online, make sure you are comparing new gear from authorized US dealers. 

    Special Opportunities: When It's Not New, We Tell You

    We occasionally have opportunities to buy B-stock merchandise to offer at special discounts. We also sometimes get returns in less than perfect condition. Sometimes we will offer these products to you - but we always identify it clearly as such using the classifications below. So unless it says otherwise, it's new from the factory.

    Important Guarantee: Your 100% Satisfaction

    Regardless of the condition described on our site, what you should remember is that if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you may return it (though exceptions apply for some products). Of course, if you know you will only be happy if a product is 100% cosmetically perfect, then you shouldn't order B-Stock or Blemished merchandise - it's just not a good gamble. And if you will only be happy if a product has never been touched by another human, well then the Resealed products aren't a good choice for you. But if you are looking for even more impressive values than our already-low prices, then these options will be very attractive when available.

    These are our best descriptions of the quality and condition of this merchandise. Because of the highly efficient, automated nature of our warehouse, and the high volume of products we stock and ship, there is no way for us to provide any additional detail on the condition of any individual item. Just remember our 100% satisfaction guarantee!

    Warehouse Resealed

    A warehouse resealed product is usually a customer return. These products are not in absolutely new condition, but will ship with everything the brand new product would ship with including manuals* and the full factory warranty*. These products are still covered by our 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so they're a great deal! 

    Blemished

    This is typically a customer return with minor cosmetic imperfections, such as superficial scratches or scuffs on the finish. This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. It has been tested to manufacturer's specifications and is guaranteed to work perfectly. It may be less attractive than Warehouse Resealed inventory, but it's priced even lower! These products are still covered by our 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so they're a great deal! 

    Scratch and Dent

    This is typically a customer return that shows general wear and tear, along with dents and scratches. This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. It has been tested to manufacturer's specifications and is guaranteed to work perfectly, but will show signs of use. It may be less attractive than Blemished inventory, but it's priced even lower! These products are still covered by our 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so they're a great deal! 

    Factory Resealed

    A factory resealed product is purchased directly from its manufacturer, who may have refurbished the product or used it for training and demonstration purposes. These products are not in absolutely new condition, but will ship with everything the brand new product would ship with including manuals (physical copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. These products are still covered by our 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so they're a great deal! 

    B-Stock

    A B-stock product is purchased directly from its manufacturer, who may have refurbished the product or used it for training and demonstration purposes. These products may be cosmetically blemished, but will ship with everything the brand new product would ship with including manuals (physical copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. These products are still covered by our 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so they're a great deal!

    Product Description


    The KH 120 is the first product in the line of Neumann Studio Monitors. Neumann is well-known in the audio industry for its high quality microphones in studios, broadcast, and on stage. Neumann has also been a pioneer in the audio industry for over 80 years with a long history of world-class products. These products have kept Neumann on the cutting edge of technology
    - from mixing consoles and disc cutting lathes, to more recent innovations in digital technology with the Solution-D system.The KH 120 studio monitor is designed for use as a near-field loudspeaker or as a rear loudspeaker in larger multi-channel systems. The KH 120 represents the quality musicians and engineers expect in acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies. It has a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide, flexible acoustical controls, analog class-AB amplifiers, various input formats and an extensive mounting hardware range. All of this provides the user with the maximum versatility over a wide variety of acoustic conditions, source equipment, and physical locations. A subwoofer, such as the Neumann KH-810, with its 7.1 High Definition Bass Manager, can be added to deepen the low-frequency response to 18 Hz and increase the system's maximum output level. The KH-120 is perfect for tracking, mixing and mastering in music, broadcast, project and post-production studios.

    Features:

    - Powerful titanium fabric dome: Low-distortion high-frequency reproduction
    - Elliptical Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide: Smoother off-axis response, More forgiving of diverse acoustical environments
    - Composite sandwich cone: Damping of break-up modes
    - Long throw bass driver: Low distortions at high sound levels
    - Two-color + dimmable Neumann logo: Displays operation status and activation of the extensive protection system
    - Robust metal grille: Protects against mechanical damage
    - Large front panel ports: Reduced bass compression and easier to mount in tight spaces such as OB vans
    - Compact aluminum cabinet (magnetically shielded): Minimizes resonances, better heat dissipation, long life
    - Wide horizontal dispersion: Freedom of movement across the mixing console
    - Narrow vertical dispersion: Reduces reflections off the mixing console
    - One-piece front panel with no discontinuities: Reduced diffraction and smoother frequency response
    - Powerful analog amplifiers with large headroom: Improved transient response
    - Production consistency: Any KH 120 is "pair-matched" to any other KH 120
    - 4-position bass, low-mid and treble acoustical controls: More control in diverse acoustical environments
    - Wide range input gain and output level controls: Easier interfacing with signal sources
    - Mounting hardware options: More flexibility in mounting cabinets in more diverse locations
    - Display dimmer: For low lighting level conditions or behind the screen applications
    - Ground lift: Reduced noise in electrically noisy environments and over-comes ground loops
    - Universal switched-mode power supply (100...240 V): One version works in any country and robust to poor quality mains supply
    - Separate woofer and tweeter electronic peak limiters and thermal-protection circuitry: High reliability
