RE: What's the difference between a bookshelf speaker and a minimonitor

Unfortunately it depends on who is using the terms. Other than they are not floor standers there really isn't a good definition although in general a bookshelf speaker may be larger than a mini monitor.

For example in the 60s the Acoustic Research AR3a, a heavy over 2 cubic foot speaker was called a book shelf speaker. A classic mini monitor, of course, is the LS35a, and it actually is a monitor speaker as that was what the BBC designed it to be, not to be a home use speaker.
