    Dynaudio Focus 60 XD - whats the next step up? suggestions?

    I have had Dynaudio BM series active monitors and subwoofers for quite some time. Then I switched to Neumann KH 80 + KH 750 and never looked back. You should go with either Neumann or Genenlec for active monitors + subs. They are on a different league.

    My set up for MA 1 calibration is: PC laptop digital output ---> Focusrite Solo Gen 3 audio interface ---> mic + analog output ---> KH 750 analog input First big problem is that the following error keeps popping up, even though I can play music through the audio interface. I don't know...

    Looking for some computer speaker recommendations; can someone help break it down for a noob?

    iLoud Micro, $350 a pair. Sounds better than Audioengine A2+ to my ear.

    New Neumann MA 1 - Automatic Monitor Alignment

    Update: Problem resolved. I have to say Neumann MA 1 software is extremely finicky and user UNfriendly! I am super frustrated -- took me two days and hours of messing around to get it to work. A good thing about the latest version 1.4.1 is that the KH 80 LED light can be permanently turned...

    New Neumann MA 1 - Automatic Monitor Alignment

    need help here: I just ran the latest version "MA 1 - Automatic Monitor Alignment Setup 1.4.1.2439" and calibration ran fine. But after that, with this latest "Setup" and "Alignment" as shown in the screenshot below, my digital-to-digital route, PC digital out --> KH750 BNC digital in...

    Neumann KH 80 + Sub for PC?

    Genelec and Neumann have very similar measurements so you won't go wrong with either. Last year when I was shopping for monitors, I narrowed down to these two as well. I just can get used to Genelec's toyish look, since they are right in front of me on my computer desk and I am eyeing...

    Neumann KH 80 + Sub for PC?

    I've used MA 1 software version 1.1, 1.2, and the latest 1.3 which is much better: reliable discovery of the speakers, and added a few new controls such as volume and KH 80's LED lights. The UI and flow is still a bit awkward, but it works as advertised. For a desktop setup, where the...

    Neumann KH 80 + Sub for PC?

    here is my setup: PC --> USB-to-AES converter --> digital input of KH 750 --> XLR to KH 80's I think Neumann's MA 1 calibration kit is a must since manually integrating sub and speakers is next to impossible for mortals. The software is far from stellar unfortunately, but it gets the job...

    Neumann KH 80 + Sub for PC?

    You don't have to use external DAC anymore. If you want to use an external DAC, DX7 in this case, you certainly can -- XLR to KH 750, which then outputs to both KH 80's via XLR as well. I ordered from Thomann and had excellent experience. Any reputable online vendor should work, just do...

    Neumann KH 80 + Sub for PC?

    KH750 has built-in DAC that takes digital input from PC. I use the BNC input so it requires a USB to AES converter. The following works fine for me: Douk Audio USB Converter XMOS XU208 Digital Interface TOSLINK Coaxial DOP SPDIF Adapter DSD64 PCM192Khz...

    End Game Speakers

    I beg to differ. His dad has been with “old school” speakers all his life, only thing that will intrigue him would be a new school masterpiece. This is like what would be a good car for his son to buy for him: Cadillac or Tesla. I’d recommend Tesla.

    Neumann/Genelec: 2.1 vs top-of-the-line monitors, what's your choice?

    yeah that's why I emphasized on "study room/computer desk intimate env".
