Well, you can get 105 and swap it with 103 if you don't like it. You will be out of shipping, but you get to have it for a month an have a chance to tweak it to your liking. At least you will not have "what if" questions if you tried it yourself in your room.
However, from your description it looks like you like the sound with Audyssey. 105 will not fix a bad room, so 103 might be a good choice.
