One of the truly standout points for KEF designs (not just these) is their Uni-Q driver. Placing the HF driver within the mid/woofer helps tremendously with imaging and coherence. The closer the mid and high-frequency drivers are placed (generally speaking) the greater the imaging and phase coherence. This is one of the reasons a MTM configuration is quite popular in bookshelf speakers as the tweeter is flanked by two mids. All sounds appear to originate from a singular point-source. This is more noticeable in near-field applications vs a large home theater.
I'm using a pair in near-field and I can confirm what you're saying.
I'm somewhat glad I don't have sufficient space for a near-field system ATM... my wallet is already pissed off by my HT, Hifi, Headphone and Camp/Hike gear obsession.
