Amen to that. Stereo (or multichannel) is essentially made in (and therefore for) very dry (and even near-anechoic) environments. While it's true that spaciousness and envelopment is caused by reflections, these reflections should come from the recording, not the room. This is where the 'wide dispersion loudspeaker' and 'room reflections are good' theory falls flat on its face.
