After AES there should be some folks that checked the Neumann KH 120 out. Please share your opinions on them. This next year is my budget for monitors.

Well, they used to make large-format consoles also and they don't anymore. So while they make some of the world's greatest microphones, how was their consoles? Obviously forgettable. I'm waiting for new technology and speaker design/execution. I'm tired of all of these cylindrical moving pieces of paper. When is somebody going to develop a huge flat panel, full response sound energy generators? Electrostatics were cool but unfortunately were not rugged/beefy enough to survive studio abuse. I'm in the process of trying to design a true digital microphone and a large resonating wall flex driver. There has got to be better ways to move air other than all of the garlic I had with my dinner. I mean we've gone from tubes to transistors to VLSI and are still using speakers like the ones designed in the 1920s. So what are we going to do about that?!

Finding an effective treatment for haemorrhoids and implant a digital socket into .... there...

Those KH 120 have been engineered and build by Klein & Hummel. Those are amongst the very best monitor manufacturers I know. How this particular baby sounds...not know, yet... till I see them in a shop...

Btw, ever seen those Gaithain Monitors? They look like removal crates, but I was stunned by their sound, depth and how precisely all instrument were locatable within the soundfield. If you have the occasion try them out... If I hadn't bought a set of 5 Genelecs, not too long before, I had ripped them from the AES booth ..

Well, I ordered a pair of the KH 120 to go with my Dynaudio BM6A . They'll be arriving in Feb 2011.

One more set of near fields to go and I am set. Then, the big boys which I'm pretty sure with be the O 500 C's or close. Love that German gear, hmm and the French , and the USA, Canada and... ... I love it all!

Hi Bos,

So true.. and so many companies with such high regards are publishing poorly produced video's. I think SPL has the best video's, others should take note!

I'm just told I have to wait until mid Feb for the 120's. Dang... but it will go by fast cause its all fun around here this time of year.
