Default Low-concentration, AT rich genome sequencing

Hi all,
Wondering what the current consensus is on recommended protocols for gDNA library prep from small concentrations (1-5ng) of an AT rich genome (Dictyostelium discoideum, ~23% GC). Empirically, we've had better luck with the protocol from Baym et al 2015[1] than the official Nextera XT protocol, but that only gets us to about 35% GC. Others have tweeted about reducing the extension temperature [2], or using a different (not commercially available?) transposase [3], but I thought I'd ask the hive mind prior to setting off on my own experiments.

I'd love to be able to do a PCR-free protocol, but the experiment I'm planning doesn't give more than about 5ng of gDNA, so that's off the table for all the kits I've seen.
