everyone around here is happy to help you spend money. but before you fire up the credit card, I would like to suggest a couple of things.
you unit is "network capable" for both Wifi and Wired. HOOK IT UP. DOWNLOAD THE APP. I have a feeling once you move to streaming directly to the unit and not via BT, you may notice a difference.
**Audiophile friends, don't let friends use BT...***
Boston Acoustics is solid gear. if after switching to a better streaming arrangement, you still feel you are lacking punch...its your call.
Sub placement, as mentioned previously, could improve the sound with better placement ( read up on "sub crawl")
Also , that Marantz unit has some quality features: streaming , and it can be used as a pre-amp. It has 60 WPC - decent to middling. if you want more power, you can always add an outboard amp to drive the current speakers or replacements. it has pre-outs.
Consider wall mounting speakers above the TV ( angled toward the MLP) this could also give you more room for a wider speaker.
Totem makes some quality speakers - always seem to be well regarded/reviewed - check out the tribe series ( long, narrow) might fit very nicely in your space.
Check out Axiom audio (another Canadian brand) the M22 might work for you.
