"BEST STUDIO PURCHASE IN YEARS!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I own a professional recording facility and had some pretty decent studio monitors from the likes of Tannoy, Mackie, and Event...BUT I found myself most often listening to mixes elsewhere and they just didn't seem to translate. I thought maybe it was just my mixing room (not boasting...but it's a great room) causing me to make several (sometimes seriously significant) revisions to mixes before I was happy listening to them in other "real" environments and finally sending them off for mastering. It was tough for me to make a decision to purchase nearfields that seemed to be very small with a fairly large price tag. But at the suggestion of a studio engineer buddy of mine, I bit the bullet and made the purchase. THIS HAS BEEN THE BEST STUDIO PURCHASE I HAVE MADE IN YEARS!! Immediately (I'm not freakin' kidding you), I could tell a tremendous difference in the sonic character of everything that was pouring from these small beauties...and instantly (I'm still not freakin' kidding you), my mixes were being nailed one time through. It was as if I had a brand new set of ears!! Neumann has usually been at the other end of things...input...not output. Let me just say that what he U87 has done for microphones, the KH120A will do for studio monitors. I have my KH120A's paired with a KRK 10s sub running through a Radial MC3 monitor controller. Just wanted to put all the facts out there. Make the purchase. Thank me later.
Sound
Sonically brilliant! Tight, focused lows & mids and pristine highs. These monitors reveal things in your mixes that you wouldn't have noticed before and allows you make corrections much more easily...even minor changes are obvious. A wonderful natural sound.
Features
Switches for EQ adustments and input sensitivity on rear. The glowing Neumann logo on the face of the monitor changes from white to red if you are pushing too much input into them...that's a great feature!
Ease of Use
Plug'em in and viola!!!
Quality
These things are built like a tank...seriously...an all metal housing and protective metal grille on woofers and tweeters. AND they looking stunningly amaz-za-zing!
Value
At twice the price, it would still be worth it.
Manufacturer Support
It's Neumann...come on.
The Wow Factor
It's Neumann. There is a legacy there. I give them a wow factor of "OMG!!!" I hear comments from bands all the time now like "I can't believe the sound that comes from those speakers." or "Dude...those monitors sound f#$%ing bada$$!!"

"Excellent speakers."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I purchased these speakers as an additional pair next to the 10" KRK's. the demo tapes that are produced at my home studio are important because they are used for guidance in putting final product together. It is absolutely necessary, in my opinion, to have both a large and small speaker set up. Well worth the money! Further, I often take some of the equipment for composition work elsewhere and the speakers travel with me. In my opinion, for production development and preproduction this should be an essential item. Regarding the overall quality: these speakers are very well constructed on every level I can possibly think of. I have had no reason to contact the manufacturer at this time.

"Neumann KH-120A"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've been in this business for over thirty years, worked in many studios and performed in several venues. I have a home studio and record all the time. Simply put, for the money these are the best I've ever heard. My mixes translate very well since I started using the Neumanns. They are worth every penny.
