I'm listening to a pair of Tannoy Mercury M1 5-1/4" 2-ways (along with an 8" Canadian-made Mirage active subwoofer) in my computer workstation at this time.
I fully enjoy the little talked about (in North America) old school paper + soft dome British Tannoy loudspeakers. Very musical; not analytical.
Tannoy makes superbly enjoyable speakers.
To me, something in the hobby went very wrong when we have to use
the term "musical" to describe a product positively. I blame mostly the hifi magazines.
It's useful to have distinctive sonic signatures to identify, with a wide-range of musical vs. analytical listening characteristics to choose from.
Most audio gear tends to present a sonic signature somewhere between the two descriptors. PRAT vs. resolution is something to consider when evaluating changes within a system.
PRAT is all about natural dynamics, while resolution is not necessarily engaging from a physical POV in terms of "boogie factor".
PRAT has little to do with dynamics (soft to loud). It is what it says it is: Pace, Rythm and Timing.
The notion of Pace, Rhythm and Timing (some consider PRAT as Pace, Rhythm, Acceleration, Timing) has to do with "boogie factor" which is a physical response to music. PRAT is based on a sense of propulsion and rhythmic drive which has everything to to with dynamics. It's the toe tapping aspect of an audio system.
