    What amp are you getting or got?
    Is the £200 for speakers only?
    You could use your ae speakers for fronts although you would really want the matching centre as well to give a good front soundstage. Most 7.1 receivers can be configured to biamp the fronts if only using a 5.1 setup but you would need to check the manual to be sure.
    Personally I would go with the Diamonds or similar as I feel a budget sub/sat system will only dissappoint considering your current speakers. If the funds are limited you could just buy the front 3 for now and then add rears/sub later as more funds become available.
