Why does rock concert sound suck?
@waytoomuchstuff , Right Arm!...uh, I mean, On....*L* ;) A few years back, Smashing Pumpkins played a local small venue louder than flesh 'n feathers could stand.  Inside, you could yell at lungs's top to the person next to you and not be underst... 
Preamps can color sound considerably. Surprising?
Do pre-'s effect the final product?  Yup. That's why I don't have one anymore in-line.  Available, yes.  Optional, sure. Pre- and post-eq instead?  Yup, and happy about it. More noise from the equipment fans than the system itself.  Not 'black'...

What Gear is Universally Adored?

Try This With Your SS Amp
....amber waves of gain.... ;) Audio aside, an expensive means of space heating if one discounts enthusiasm.... But admittedly makes for a better sound than a mere fan driving btu’s... ;) Happy weekend, y’all..  
Personality Type?
OMG!  Kenjit surfaced! "Thar he blows!  To the cannons!" *L* Sorry I missed it, some things just 'come 'n go' too quick..;)  
Magnepan .7 Alternatives
There is always an alternative, except one... Your biggest issue is the room.  When reading your room was near square I thought 'ow, the only save is a low ceiling...'  Yeah, some room treatment would help, even with anything new to the situation...
