PURON RESOLVE creates new options for better sound
I tried putting a box or 2 of stainless steel BB's on my amp. Moved them around because they did nothing in most places, until I put them directly over the back panel inputs.  Some improved clarity at the expense of sounding drier.  Oh well.

Why "bookshelf" sspeakers?

Quality of Sirius XM
I had it in the car, I think they overcook a MP3 quality sound into a fake HI-REZ sound that sounded artificial.

Placement of speakers and sub, not to mention chair placement, can have everything to do with clarifying  the low end, and everything else.  Maybe you have limited options to do this?  
Any normal size speakers that sound like Volti
I have some relatives that have to have their family room TV in an armoir, closed when company comes so it does not distract from the conversations.  I have an 85" TV in mine and my listening room 15' X19' is taken over to Maggie 3.7's, so guess h...

Do I Need a Dedicated Streamer?
@danby99.  You've got great gear.  Streaming from you computer is your weakest source.  You have invested $$ into your system, just spend some more to get the best results.    
I found the best way to recycle my old tubes!
