Please read the linked Stereophile article on how stereo soundstage is electronically constructed, it's very comprehensive.
The speakers radiation characteristics/room interaction/your ears position are the dominant factors once the recording is set.
I'm not saying someone with hyper-active imagination can't get electronics to make a mini-monitor/horn have soundstage like an omni MBL in their mind, but outside in the really real world, not happening.
Sterephonic soundstage based on intensity/phase a fairly mature tech at this point, it's creators knew exactly what they were doing.
Playback OTOH, is left to the preferences of the listener. The speaker/room is the overwhelming determinant. If the electronics induce voltage inter-channel differences, then of course they could affect things slightly. The polar response of the speaker isn't one of those things.
