Aside from the speaker set up, the recording also plays a part in center fill. There was a time when stereo recordings were done with the "ping pong" effect. With these recordings, there was definitely no center fill.
Let's not forget symmetry either
And, doesn't having all the equipment in between the speakers have the potential to interfere with the acoustics of a phantom center, apart from the psychoacoustics of looking at a bunch of gear?
I have a monster sized old buddha sitting between my horns, but since they are highly directional I'm not sure what acoustic difference it makes; pyschoacoustically, it puts me in a totally zen state.

I love the smell of vinyl in the morning!
