I've been down several of the same roads as you timind with the diagonal set up and the extreme toe in. 45° toe in does spread the sweet spot as you noted, but does wonky things to the soundstage, so I've reserved that placement for home theater in which a wide sweet spot is more important than soundstage or frequency response. The diagonal placement works wonders for soundstaging as first reflection (there is one) is very close and oblique from the speakers reducing high frequency reflections where most of the soundstage queues are. However I found it created a lot of bass issues, I wonder what you've experienced. I'm also wondering what Master Set placement would do for a diagonal arrangement.
The trick is to set the first speaker totally decoupled from the walls. Then you can set the second speaker in a perfect phase position to the first speaker. In that small zone of perfection the image stays very stable.BTW, you can only tell just so much from a picture.
It is an optical illusion. For the record, the speaker baffles are just over 2 feet out from the wall.
