Reverb and room ambience can really sound different on different speakers. Hearing more reverb/ambience on a pair of speakers does not
necessarily mean they are better
speakers. The freq response may simply favor key ranges. Also, RIAA EQ compensation on phonos is not always exactly 100% accurate so there's room for some divergence there, as well -- but I'm betting it's primarily the speakers and, then, to some extent the rest of the chain.
The reason I have a pair of NS10m's and a pair of Event 20/20bas is because they both sound very, very different and reveal different things. A mix will sound strikingly different going back and forth between them.
