Its hard enuf to get from point A to point B when you have a map, but you lack both a map and point B (a goal personal to you - you don't need my goal). Leave it alone and enjoy!

The only thing that jumped out at me was using the subs as speaker stands for the Left & Right speakers. It seems to me that you are missing out on the main advantage of a subwoofer -- its placement flexibility. It's unlikely that placing the subs where the Left & Righ speakers play well will yield a smooth bass response. I'd consider getting dedicated speaker stands for the Left & Right speakers and then place the subs wherever you can to get a smoother response.
This article might help in placing the subs: http://www.harman.com/EN-US/OurCompany/Technologyleadership/Documents/White%20Papers/multsubs.pdf
Other than that, your idea about updating your receiver to one that does room mode correction is a good one.
Don't buy a Rolex everyone has one. Get something people will really think you have a lot of dough. How about a used Vacheron or a Patek Phillipe.
I would get a better front end in fact I think your thoughts about the Oppo are correct.
I also agree however that you really haven't told us what you want most out of your system. If you are serious about 2 channel critical listening find a space for another system and build a good rig from scratch.
Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for the multisub paper, Bob. I'll have to sit down and read it, look at my room, and see what I can do. I think placing the subs elsewhere in the room would be fine, as long as they were hidden (for the most part) and I have a couple of options there (possibly).
On to my goal(s) for the system since I was not at all clear in my original post: I want the system to reproduce music as realistically as possible, given the constraints of the room. It also has to function as a theater system handling action movies as well as HDTV off the DirecTV DVR.
I have no ability to create a 2-channel listening room (no unused space in the house) so this system has to pull double duty.
