    I have at present a Mission Cinema 7, 5 speaker setup with a kef sub which works great. At some point in the future I am thinking of making the system 6.1. I have obviously already got sub, front left and right, centre, and a pair of dipole rears.

    What type of speaker do I need for centre rear? Do I get another centre or do I need a surround?

    I was also thinking of getting a pair of centre rears so I'm ready for 7.1 in the future.

    How about a set of Mission 771e's from RS? Under a hundred quid, they match your setup tonally and you can use one for 6.1 and both for 7.1 :)

    I use a pair of Mission M5DS for centre rears, between a pair of Mission 773e main left/right rears.

    Sound nice..got the M5DS from Sevenoaks. Check out their www site for special clearance or web offers

    Would Mission m7c1 do as a centre rear with my mission cinema 7 setup?

    Yep. Thats what I'm using. I tried it up front between my M74's before I mounted it at the back to test it. What people say about trying to match speakers tonally is correct. It sounded so out of place up front but at the back between my 70DS its perfect.
