Merry, I'll say it first. What do you hope to accomplish?

Probably not the direction you’re thinking of but you already have a nice system. Maybe look at dedicated circuits and get some Hubbell Porter Port Outlets sold here, some aftermarket Pangea Power Cords if you’re using the stock cords then if you have anything left, go to the Bluesound website, go to shop/outlet and buy a refurbished Node 2 for $299 with a subscription to Tidal/hifi and enjoy new music.
Agree, tweak the system setup and then the room.
For $1-2k you could buy enough Blue Quantum Fuses, ECTs and HFTs to have your system performing on a level far beyond anything you could get from any new amp on the market. This stuff is seriously transforming, most of it you can try 30 days and return if you don't like it, and best of all you buy it once and use it everywhere forever from then on.
I 2nd-3rd-4th the ideas of room treatment and a dedicated line.
Check out ATS Acoustics online if your wish to DIY room treatments. Not difficult to make room absorption panels and relatively inexpensive.
Lots of info on both topics herein on this forum.
I believe in quality of power, not quantity. Not likely you need a new amp, considering power only.
I have a nice system also, but don't have dedicated lines, power conditioning, receptacles or room treatments (although I think my power and room are ok). I don't have a particular area I can look at (listen to) and say it definitely needs improvement. Not sure if you have done so already, but I am way behind the eight ball in terms of music streaming, internet radio, and the like. I am waiting for an updated Sonos Connect to come out. I believe the other streamers have surpassed the Sonos in fidelity, but I want to wait as I believe the Sonos is easiest to use.
One more thought, if you are interested in adding power conditing to your system you might consider the Equi=Core 1800/Core Power Technologies which is balanced power. Walter of https://www.underwoodhifi.com has purchased the rights to this product and I received a sales flyer saying that he has five of these units available at a sale price of $1399 I believe. I've owned this product for several years (since its development) and for the price I recommend it.
