I have read a lot about acoustics and nearfield monitor speakers, but none seems to clearly explain the difference between nearfield and other professionally used monitor speakers. Other than physical size and power translating to volume, what are the technical difference between nearfield and midfield monitors, sonically? I've seen some other forum posts that say that midfields can reproduce reverbs better, and some claiming that the midfields have better "off-axis response". I still cannot understand how, in a acoustically well-treated room, that would matter much. Can anyone help? Can nearfield monitors also be placed on stands and used at, say... 7-8ft away? Would it sound terrible? And why? Please help!
