Primarily known as a microphone company, Neumann has re-branded the Klein & Hummel speaker line and now offers its first studio monitor. The Neumann KH 120 ($TBA) features a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion (MMD™) waveguide, flexible acoustical controls, analog and digital inputs, and an extensive range of mounting hardware. The biamped KH 120 has two 50-watt Class-A/B amps powering the 5.25-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter, providing a 52 to 21k Hz (±3dB) response.

British mic manufacturer SoundField offers a software version of its hardware UPM-1 stereo-to-5.1 upmix processor. The plug-in ($975) analyzes the stereo input material, separating ambient sounds from the direct sounds for detailed adjustment of the relative levels of direct sound and front/rear ambient sound in the final 5.1 mix. Features include Width and center-channel Divergence, plus level, mute and solo controls for each channel. Supported formats include VST (PC/Mac), RTAS (PC/Mac) and AU (Mac-only).

The Glyph Triplicator ($399) saves time when you need to copy critical data to multiple drives by making copies in a single action. When moving data to the Triplicator volume, identical data is copied to all of the target drives. Simply connect two or three drives to Triplicator’s eSATA device ports, connect the Triplicator to a computer via FireWire 800, USB or eSATA, and then copy the data to the destinations, which are seen as one drive.
