During the exhibition, Neumann displayed many of innovations, both past and present. For instance, its limited-edition U 87 Rhodium Set and a re-issue of its famous U 67 microphone were at the stand, while more recent products on display included the Neumann.Control app for iPad, which opens up the full potential of the KH 80 DSP studio monitor. Neumann.Control, which utilizes standard IP networking, allows users to define loudspeaker systems from mono to 3D audio set-ups, align them for a well-balanced in-room sound, and then operate them centrally.
