Using 40 with music your towers are doing 99% of the work anyway. Very little content below 40 in music unless you're listening to dubstep.

Anyway, my experience was the same but after listening with Audyssey flat for a couple of weeks I realized I was getting a more detailed soundstage and going back to Pure Direct (or without Audyssey) collapsed the music back into darkness...
What is Audyssey Flat? Where do I go into the Denon receiver to get Audyssey Flat?

I have listened with Audyssey on in Direct mode and Stereo mode and did not really enjoy the music in 2-channel music. I am using a standalone CD player with rca cable (Left/Right). My CD player does not have HDMI connection.

Let me know how to listen to 2-channel music with Audyssey Flat. As of right now, Pure Direct Mode is my favorite choice.

I would tend to agree. Hip-hop, dub-step, trance, rap, and acoustic pipe organ are a few examples where there can be very deep bass on music recordings. Generally though, music like rock, pop, jazz, progressive, etc. doesn't have much content <35 Hz (low E on the electric bass is 40 Hz).
