Scott, Hecker's comments about the different dynamics needed when creating a separate nearfield mix for home use elucidate something I've long thought: that the nearer you get to your sound source, The less you are able to discern fine differences in dynamics. I know that when I listen to music or movies on my home theater, I always end up picking out parts of the music I miss on headphones, regardless of how loud I'm listening to either. I've always felt it's easier to hear the intricacies of music when I'm in a larger room where the sound has the opportunity to fill the space.
