Carl Tatz Design Announces Near-Field Monitors

Carl Tatz Design has announced two professional near-field reference monitors as part of its line of PhantomFocus Precision Monitoring Instruments.  

Carl Tatz Design said the PFM HD-1000 High Definition and the PFM UHD-1000 Ultra-High Definition Professional Monitors are intended for audio professionals demanding the highest performance in dedicated mix room or control room/tracking installations.  

Designed to be used exclusively in tandem with the company's on-site installed PhantomFocus System, both monitors offer high vocal rendition, the ability to handle high SPLs (115dB continuous) with fast transient response, articulate detail and PhantomFocus’s sonically holographic pinpoint imaging at all listening levels.

The PFM HD-1000 is a passive near-field monitor in a low-profile D'Appolito design facilitating console/listener placement. With accelerated response time, phase linearity and controlled mid-bass response, the PFM HD-1000 has power, accuracy and non-fatiguing performance beyond that of traditional high- and mid-frequency driver motor capability.

It features two proprietary Morel 5.63-inch (143.51 mm) “Uniflow” aluminum diecast woofers with large three-inch voice coils and a proprietary one-inch (23.4 mm) ScanSpeak high-frequency tweeter with patented phase plug design. The monitor is available with the passive Straight Wire crossover and an optional bi-amp version.

The PFM HD-1000 Monitor dimensions are HWD 8.2-inches x 17.8-inches x 12.2-inches and weighs 22.2 pounds.
