Commercial Colour Mangements. Your experience would be appreciated

My setup consists of
Vista Home Premium - Photoshop Elements 6 with a Canon 6700D using their original inks ChromaLife CL1 series using the recommended setting PhotopaperPro setting for Ilford Galerie Smooth Gloss paper.
I use a PanttoneHuey Pro for my Samsung SyncMaster 171s monitor calibration and I use daylight bulb lighting for my editing.
Having tried various setups with my limited experience I use
Colour Setting ----- Let me choose
Colour Handling ----- Photoshop Manages Colour
Printer Preferences -- Custom
Printer Profiles ------ A Working RGB
B sRGB
C Canon 6700D PR2
Using a commercial profile and one of my own photos as a test source I found very little difference between A and B
C in the eye of the beholder and my partners valued opinion gave the best results though very slightl red bias.

I was looking to improve my results.

To this end I have used two Colour Management web outlets A and B and to a lesser or greater degree the results were the same
Overall darker and with a red and blue bias with A more so.
B provided a second profile which was lighter quote " it had a bigger gamut" unquote.
Of the test prints provided by A and B which were printed using A/B/C and their profile. A preferred their test whilst B quote was not able to check against a test print of their own but relied on their calibrating data. when asked re the bigger gamut
Quote" I would guess that the colours will be brighter and more saturated." unquote
Of all the test prints sent to A and B again in the eye of the beholder and my partners valued opinion C Canon 6700D PR2 profile was preferred

In both cases in an exchange of emails Inference of a printer problem was made
This may be the case but since i was seeking to improve my results I have been most disappointed with my experience.

I am prepared to take a third opinion or am I wasting my money?
Any member who could recommend a company they have used please advise. Thank you

If any member who is using a 6700D but not necessarily the same ink and paper could advise on their printer setup I would appreciate their advice

Thank you
BWep
