I think that's part of why the NT1 sounds good to me - it's natural rather than someone trying to compensate for something. And it doesn't seem like you need to be right on top of it.
The NT1 is a very nice mic at an affordable price and most certainly do not need to be very close to it, unless you want the proximity effect. An audio interface like the MOTU M2 (which I use) have more than enough gain for it as well while the M2 could be marginal for a dynamic mic.
The reason I switched to a front addressed mic like the SR314 was that I felt that the NT1 was too "big"/"into my face"/"in the way", not for any deficiencies as such.
