    I agree, I have noticed that too.
    With the KEF LS50 in my my second system I can sit at what I consider to be an almost near-field position. I sit less than 10 feet distance from the speakers.
    If I get closer, I get more "enveloped" by the sound but focus is lost and the stereo image gets diffused.

    It's true that boredom moves the world as the expression goes. However, it will at least be clear in the future that there is validity to considering historical practice in baroque and Early Music. It doesn't mean that you have to slavishly follow it. For example I just can't listen to boy trebles in Baroque music even though historically they sang in place of women. But the reason for that was religious custom rather than musical considerations. I also have no problem with a contemporary rearrangement or recomposition stated as such. V. Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is a great piece of music that pays homage to the Renaissance without being antiquarian.
