If you haven't tried this Ambioponics aka Stereo-binaural processing that Durwood raves about yet then you must!
I have here a pre-processed track and a non processed track of a Dave Mathews Band live song of "All Along the Watchtower"
Directions are in the Read Me file I composed. The track has been processed using Reaper with an Electro-Music Mosiac vst plugin by me.

- Place your speakers about 2", yes that is Inches, from each other
- Make sure they are aiming about 10-15 degrees inwards towards each other
- Now sit back about 5-6'(feet), visually be center with the speakers and try to be eye level if possible.
- Listen to the non ambio version first, then the ambio version.
You'll notice the speaker boundaries disappear. This is because the crosstalk between the speakers has been "controlled" using the dsp with cancellation along with physical cancellation. (more in depth on ambiophonics.org)
The stage is now wider and can expand and contract, there is added texture to the music and sounds more life like.
Feel Free to move the speakers wider or closer and play with the degrees and hear what it does.
