Should I just move it into the unfinished basement with exposed concrete floors and exposed plastic lined insulation?Why not, it worked for me ;-)

Try the diagonal set up as it tends to neutralize room nodes. However, do not set it up such that the center stage is in a corner. The diagonal should be off axis to a corner.
Even though a room can be set up symmetrically this doesn't mean all things will be equal. For example your speakers do not have to be symmetrical with any room boundaries, nor do you have to sit in an equilateral triangle set up.
If all else fails at least you still have the basement.
IMHO, if the center image is off with the "room set up equally," I would definitely rule out any equipment issues first. Swap L and R speaker connections on the back of the amp. The stereo image will be reversed, but the problem should not change if it is the room. You could also swap the speakers to rule them out.
