Nope - the biggest factors in descending order of effect are (1) speakers, (2) room acoustics, (3) amplifier. If you want more lively sound without spending significant money, adjust the acoustics. Sharp hard edges that reflect sound should make your system livelier. This is pretty much the opposite of what people generally do to adjust room acoustics; the more typical problem is that the room is too reflective. Try that and see what happens. Dali's are nice speakers; kind of soft, but nice speakers so I wouldn't do anything wtih them - you may want to take a look at the amp next. Another very recent thread expressed the same type problem but with a reference to source material (CD's) look at my response to that OP for my take on the Rotel sound and my suggested alternatives.
