The problem most likely is you are using an AVR - at least that is my own experience. I spent good money going from a highly rated Denon AVR receiver to separate Mcintosh and Lexicon HT equipment, with various speaker changes, trying to get it. It was great for movies/surround sound, but neither ever sounded great in stereo, never had a great sound-stage. Switched it all out to stereo. If you need to keep the HT, I would suggest getting a high-quality integrated made for stereo with a HT by-pass, you will get the sound stage you are looking for in pure stereo. That is my costly experience. One cheaper suggestion, disconnect the center channel and hear/see what happens.
