I humbly suggest upgrading all 3 of your front speakers at once. If you end up getting the KEFs, that's cool, but make sure you add the matching center channel at the same time. I say this from experience.
About 3 years ago, I upgraded from my old satellite/sub system to some Klipsch Refence monitors. (RB51 to be exact). I made the mistake of leaving the tiny little satellite center speaker, thinking I would upgrade piece by piece. Well, I just now got around to upgrading my center speaker, and now, the difference it's made has been night and day.
We always say (at least I do) that the center speaker is the most important single one in a surround setup. It's the one your dialogue comes from, and it anchors everything you hear.
Just my 2 cents.
Centre is by no means the most important part of a home theatre. Everything in the setup must be equalized, one part that is less-high-end will have great loss effects on the whole setup. That's why I'm thinking to upgrade everything. I would be really happy If I can find a whole package system. I already have the Denon 2313 receiver. Now, speakers and sub-woofer.
So, do you already know the answers to the questions you're asking us? For crying out loud, at least be open to input from guys who have done this before you.
If the center you're using now is a satellite speaker and you want to get away from satellite speakers because of the size of your room, then yes, you have to change your center.
Are Energy speakers available in the UK? I know it's based in Canada, but it's also available in the US.
If so, I would recommend the CF-50 for your left and right loudspeakers, and the matching center, the CC10. They're just under your budget, they're extremely well-reviewed and do very well for home theater use.
But I think I will listen to your advice and get a matching centre as well with the floor front speakers.
Its my first time to buy proper speakers, I always buy Satellite speakers, Im sure It will be huge bump in quality and volume.
Does vanns ship to the UK? What about these veritas 6.2's for $300 ea?
