Sennheiser UK Takes Monitors and Shotgun Microphones to BVE North
Two highlights of the stand will be Neumann’s KH120 studio monitors and the new MKH 8060 short gun and MKH 8070 long gun microphones.
Designed for use as a near-field loudspeaker or as a rear loudspeaker in larger multi-channel systems, the KH 120 represents Neumann’s use of the very latest in acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies to ensure the most accurate sound reproduction possible.
Featuring a Mathematically Modelled Dispersion™ (MMD™) waveguide, flexible acoustic controls, analogue class-AB amplifiers, a number of input formats and an extensive range of mounting hardware, the KH 120 provides the maximum versatility for a wide variety of acoustic conditions, source equipment and physical spaces.
Perfect for tracking, mixing and mastering in music, broadcast, project and post-production studios, the KH 120 is the first in a new line of Neumann studio monitors, taking this type of product to a new level.
Grammy Award winning record producer Steve Levine has recently added a pair of KH 120s to his studio. “It was music I’d known for a long time and, all of a sudden, something I knew so well became incredibly transparent and clear,” he says. “My immediate reaction was ‘Oh, finally! Monitors that sounds like I want them to sound’. From the start I was very impressed.”
MKH series shotgun microphones, meanwhile, can be used either as analogue or digital microphones. The compact MKH 8060 is a versatile short gun microphone, equally at home on or off camera, while the long MKH 8070 rifle microphone is a specialist for more distant sound sources and is the perfect choice for sports reporting and nature recordings.
Both models feature a natural and very lifelike sound, as off-axis sound is attenuated without colouration. Their radio-frequency condenser principle also makes both microphones extremely weather-resistant, ensuring that they can cope even with climatically difficult conditions, such as extreme cold and moisture.
Appearing alongside them will be a further selection of Sennheiser products including the ME 66 short gun microphone and associated K6 powering module, MD 46 reporter’s microphone, MKH 416 short gun interference tube microphone, MKH 418, stereo shotgun microphone and MKE 400 small shotgun microphone for cameras with a lighting shoe mount, plus G3 2000 series and 3000 and 5000 series wireless systems.
