A few thoughts;

The reverberant field only exists in very large spaces and is as you suggest the point where the SPL stops falling with increasing distance, it doesn't exist at audio frequencies in a living room and once in that field, voice ineligibility and a stereo image is gone, STIpa is VERY low.

The idea behind stereo reproduction is that one has two independent sources, each able to reproduce it's assigned channel of the image.

It's possible that none of your recordings have that much dynamic range, especially if one depends on FM radio as a source or highly compressed pop mp3's etc. If you listen to "hifi" recordings, try analyzing one using Cool Edit, Audacity etc and see what that indicates and examine your amplifier output Voltage using an oscilloscope for instantaneous clipping.

There are reasons why home hifi falls so short of real.
