Basically yes, that is the primary difference. With bookshelves vs. floorstanders, floorstanding speakers may sound differently when it comes to bass frequencies. Due to the larger cabinet, even though there's only about a 10Hz difference between the speakers, the floorstanders bass may seem deeper or more pronounced. Other than that, there really isn't much of a difference between the two. I would urge you however to listen to them in person if possible to determine if there is a marked difference between the two, but I somewhat doubt it.
