The next best thing I can think of at the moment to do for that is suss out a good place to wedge in a 2nd-order low-pass filter around 5-6kHz; most guitar speakers won't go much over that, so you wouldn't be missing much high end.

This will push the hiss close to the noise floor and significantly increase the SNR ratio. And as an extra benefit, the amp is going to have a much more home-friendly volume range (currently 4 is my max)I'll keep updating the first post with some progress
