Give up or sell the house, lord give us the strength to change the things we can and the wisdom to know the things we can not change. Go back to the cheap shit before it's to late my man.

You might want to look into larger speakers like some Snell E/III's or larger. Your ears have become accustomed to the sound in your old room, which sounds to me were best suited to your smaller K/II's. Your new room needs a larger spk. me thinks. See how things sound after buying larger spks. before making any other changes.
I've checked the phasing - reversed one side - no better. Maybe worse.
I've brought the fronts of the speakers 6-10 inches in FRONT of the entertainment system. Its hard for me to beleive that noone with a big TV or entertainment unit can have good imaging. Can that possibly be true? They should put a WARNING LABEL on these units if that's the case.
I'm calling Johnnie Cochran.
but way back when in the old house I even lost imaging when I went from wooden to metal stands - speakers were only 6 inches from back wall when they sounded great. But nothing in between.
Maybe fill the entertainment unit with lead shot? Its about 80 cubic feet.
What speaker might do better in sucha room? Somebody said a bigger spaker - I was thinking of B&W Nautilus 805 - I dunno, my buddy has'em and loves'em - in a smaller room than I have.
I second reversing the phase on "ONE" speaker. One of your components, cables or wires is reversing the phase.
I can make "any" system image, if it is in phase. If not...Frogettaboudit.
It isn't the room, stands, or any of that.
Remember just revers the leads on "ONE" speaker then listen. Your imaging will return.
