Analytical vs. resolving

The terms we use in high-end audio are often confusing.

When I listen to a pair of studio monitors like the ATCs I find them analytical, meaning they are cold, forward, in your face with about as much emotional engagement as a doctor listening through a stethoscope.

When I listen to a pair of our FR30 loudspeakers I find them highly resolving, meaning they are so emotionally engaging I am drawn into their sound so that I might hear deeply into the music.

Both speaker types are very detailed.

One engages me with the music in the same way I might interact with a university textbook.

The other draws me in like a great novel begging to be read.

Analytical vs. resolving.
