Most people are aware of PRaT (Pace Rhythm and Timing) being applied to boogie factor brands such as Naim, Exposure etc.

Recently I saw PnS (Pipe ‘n Slippers) used for the first time (by SSM) to describe MF and Marantz; I’m not really familiar with either of these brands but I assume he means Arcam style.

Are there any other acronyms out there for other groups of house sounds? Where would people put the Cyrus and Audiolab styles, since all the PRaT and PnS models seem to have much richer weightier sounds?

PRaT is a known hi-fi acronym. However, PnS is not. It isjust made up. And it has no vowels.
prat is also made up, everything is made up by someone, as is swmbo more often used on forums than prat

prat and naim often used in same sentance

Better but it would need to be become widely used.

So we need to wait untilwe here people talking about how their speakers sounded a bit PiSsy.

Cyrus and Audiolab are FATs: fast and thin:p
