    I've recently upgraded my DVD player from a 'Pioneer 717' to my new 'Sony NS930V'.

    I'm very happy with the improvement in picture quality, but also a little annoyed by the non-improvement in layer change speed :mad:.

    Anyway's back to my question, I have 'Monitor Audio 2' Speakers as my fronts, i'm happy to keep these as my room is on the small side and they do the job just fine. But i would like to replace my old 'B&W 2000IFS' Centre speaker, which sound totally different tonally to my fronts, no smooth panning of sound here!! :(

    Should i try out the new 'Bronze' or 'Silver' series from Monitor Audio, or would i be better suited trying to find an older Monitor Audio centre nearer the production time my fronts or a different make of speaker all together???

    I would look for an older matched centre or alternatively look for another monitor audio 2 and use it...... that will give the best tonal match.

    I'll look into finding something from the same range(i.e. Montior Audio 2), but i'm also thinking i might replace my Fronts(I'll move my Fronts to Rear postion) and Centre Speakers this year and my Rears next, what would you recommend for my setup and a budget of about £500-£600 for Fronts and Centre?

    Im not the one to ask on your options to be honest, I think that good advice is again with the tonal match..... stick with the monitor audio brand all round and i think you would be making a good move. Other brands may work likewise, but you would have to go looking!
