    Just ordered a Marantz SR4300 amp, and am hoping to get my dvd rigged up with new speakers to get the best out of my dvd-a's i've just bought.

    Currently using jpw mini monitors - which are - well - poor.

    Looking at getting new speakers around the room, the biggest mystery is the centre rear speaker.... do I just buy the same speaker as my front centre?

    Any ideas for a "Budget" buyer.....

    You pretty much have it spot on.

    Speaker wise, some of the Kef, Tannoy and Mission deals are very good.

    For the surround back I would tend to stick with the same speaker as you have or will be getting for the surrounds, providing they are going to be monopoles, I find that monopoles work best for me, did try a dedicated centre once when I first jumped up to 6.1/7.1, didn't like the results one bit. Think this was due to the poor quality of centre speaker, which IMO most are, and I was using a dedicated centre for which is really a surround F/X channel.

    Have just put a system together with six identical speakers for my nephew and the results are outstanding. Used 3xpairs Tannoy MX1's and Velodyne CHT-10 sub all hooked up to a Denon 1803. I found this to work really well, might be worth looking at.

    DVDA tend to be mastered differently from DVD Video and they are normally mastered with all five speakers equidistant from the listening area.
