I suspect your problem may be in set up, I'm not reassured that you you think your dealer set it up properly. If you have the equipment necessary I would check out the set up parameters. Pay attention to VTA, something which is often overlooked due to the difficulty of establishing it. Proper VTA for each disc you play is a magical thing, especially if you have a line stulus. Have you allowed for the differences between disc thicknesses? Does the Spacearm allow for VTA adjustments on the fly? Loading will affect tonality but wont't help with spacial issues like DOI (not caused by HF roll off). But, FWIW CD's do that imaging trick quite well, and with no effort on your part - thats one of its great attributes.
