I have Sony SS-B3000 Left and Right, and Sony SS-CN5000 Center, along with Pioneer SB-BS21 for surrounds.

This setup sounds great, really I don't have any complaints.
But I'm thinking of shuffling things around and what to get some opinions.

I'm thinking of getting the Pioneer SP-BS21 for the fronts (to match the surrounds) so that I can take the current Sony B3000 L/R speakers and use them in zone 2.
And if I do that, I'll replace the Center to match the rest, getting the Pioneer SP-C21 center speaker. That leaves an extra Sony center speaker that I'll have to figure out what to do with.

My question is, will this sound better than what I currently have, or worse?

From the listening that I have done, I find the sound quality of that series of Pioneer speakers to sound considerably better than those Sony speakers.

On the other hand, if you have $27,000, the Sony SS-AR1 speakers are rather nice.
