Something like a "cold setup" of your speakers prior to running Audyssey calibration will surely do justice for a better acoustic experience.

Just my thoughts.
I can't help it, I go around in circles with all toy purchases like this. You should have seen me when I was trying to choose wheels and exhaust for my Mustang. Here's a pic of my room. Hoping to be in a house that isn't so crammed in less than 12 months though. Pulled the screens off the speakers so you can see how much is hidden behind the furniture. On the left side, the end of that couch is about 15" away from the speaker. ON the right side, that chair is about 30" away from the speaker. Not ideal, but the best possible setup for this room with the furniture we have. Picture taken from my main listening position.

Thanks for the pic. If it were up to me I would put the two Klipsch towers just next to the cabinet, toe them in to face MLP, move the basket and the sub out of the way. Then run Audyssey again.

I thought about that, but then the towers would be narrower than the ends of the couch that I sit on, and I would HAVE to sit dead center on the couch at all times, right? (If sitting against either arm rest on the couch instead of dead center, I would then be directly in front of a tower speaker, whereas currently I can sit against the armrest and still be more in front of the center channel than the towers) At least with them spread out like they are, I can lay down on the couch and still be inside the two and make out L and R channel separation. Not to mention, anyone sitting on the couch on the left (which does happen) or in the chair on the right, would be outside the soundfield all together, and the closest tower would completely drown out everything else. That's my thinking, anyway...

BTW, I currently have the base Audyssey EQ with the Marantz SR6004. The 6008 has EQXT and the X4000 has XT32 (the two I'm hung up on).

Audyssey is designed to make corrections for a multi-seat environment, worry not about where you are sitting on the couch. BTW, this would be what I would call experimenting.

Given what you have said about preferring Marantz and also wanting XT-32, why don't you wait awhile, save your money, and get a 7008. I would definitely recommend XT-32, whether in a Denon or a Marantz. But psychological satisfaction is an important aspect of our enjoyment of both cars and audio systems. If you prefer Marantz, just wait awhile longer. The price on the 7008 has already come down quite a bit since the 7009 (with Atmos) came out. If you shop carefully, you may be able to have your cake and eat it too.
