â€” Ryman Auditorium Chooses Carl Tatz Designâ€™s Highly Praised Monitor Tuning Enhancement Protocol For Critical Broadcast And Concert Recording Events â€”
Nashville, TN: As one of the more iconic venues in the world, the Ryman Auditorium stays consistently booked with concert acts ranging from the Grand Old Opry broadcasts to top-name acts in multiple genres from pop to country to jazz to stand-up comedy. â€œAfter auditioning a Carl Tatz Design (CTD) PhantomFocusâ„¢ System at one of the Rascal Flatts studios that Carl designed, Steve Gibson [musical director for the Grand Old Opry] and I agreed that no speaker choice or acoustic design alone was going to deliver that kind of performance, so it was a no-brainer decision for us to go with the PFS for the Ryman control room,â€? says Ryman chief broadcast engineer King Williams. â€œWe also specified the Dynaudio M1, Bryston 4B combination that we heard.â€? House
engineer Kevin Reinen states, â€œEveryone who uses the control room is blown away by our PhantomFocus Systemâ€™s amazingly detailed imaging and accurate tight bottom down to 20Hz. They just donâ€™t expect to hear that kind of performance in such a small room.â€? Recent recorded events include the Americana Awards and The Nashville Flood Relief Concert featuring top country performers Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, Ricky Skaggs and Keith Urban.
