Nashville, TN: Having a Carl Tatz Design PhantomFocus MixRoom™ in your home has been a closer for the Nashville real estate market over the last year. Ear Candy is one of four properties, alongside The Blue Grotto, The Grip II and Hartwell Records (a private facility), that have sold quickly, driven by the desirability of having such an acclaimed professional audio facility in the home.
Nashville realtor June Lunn (who is also the wife of virtuoso session bass player Gary Lunn) has been responsible for most of these sales. She comments, “Over the years I have either sold homes with an existing Carl Tatz Design PhantomFocus MixRoom™ studio, or I have worked with buyers to find a home with the perfect footprint that facilitates the installation of one. Carl is so helpful and makes himself available to assist with the process. As a realtor, there is nothing more thrilling to me than selling a home with a Carl Tatz Design studio in it! I love to see the expression on the faces of buyers when they hear the magic of the PhantomFocus System for the first time. They are always amazed!”
Former Ear Candy studio owner Mike Hayes states, “I can’t wait to have Carl install the new PhantomFocus™ PFM HD-1000 Master Reference Monitor System in our new MixRoom at our new home in Atlanta as soon as we settle in.”

About the PhantomFocus™ Monitor System
Carl Tatz Design’s proprietary PhantomFocus™ Monitor System monitor tuning protocol offers clients a unique opportunity to have a truly world-class monitoring experience in their room, no matter how modest. All speakers interact with the room they’re in, and the PhantomFocus Monitor System allows any monitors to perform at maximum accuracy – in any room – with a full 20Hz-to-20KHz frequency response and pinpoint imaging in what some owners have described as a “holographic sweet spot.” It is a new level of sonic accuracy that engenders easier, better and faster mixing that translates well in any environment.
There are approximately fifty steps in the proprietary PhantomFocus Monitor System implementation protocol, including phase alignment, system damping, speaker decoupling and isolation mounting, careful assessment of engineer/speaker placement relative to primary axial room modes, proprietary laser-calibrated speaker distancing and angle alignments, digitally-controlled crossover points and slopes for pass filtering, and, proprietary, multiband parametric equalization.
Hardware solutions can include monitor stands, concrete, Sorbothane™ and other isolation and damping materials, custom floating plenum mounts, subwoofer systems and custom digital processors. The PhantomFocus Monitor System evaluation and implementation is a full two-day process and can be applied to near-fields, mid-fields, and large soffit mounted monitors, regardless of manufacturer.
Carl Tatz Design installs the PhantomFocus Monitor System in existing control rooms and in all studios that are designed and built from the ground up by CTD. The result is like the aural equivalent of HDTV. Once you experience a PhantomFocus Monitor System, you can’t go back.
