What are the model numbers etc?
This will help to pinpoint what you have so what is best to upgrade first.
was it an all in one system or separates?
A lot of speakers from all in one systems can not be used with separate AV amps

A basic HD amp would be £250 for the Onkyo 507 (also a yamaha at the same price but can not remember number).
Or you could upgrade the speakers to a Jamo set.
What sources do you have?
If you have a BR player or PS3 then I would be tempted to go for the amp upgrade to get HD audio.
If you have no BR and not going to get one in a while then go for a speaker upgrade.

If you can live without HD audio (and TBH with your current speakers, you wouldn't notice the difference), you're best to go for the Jamo speaker package at about £220. These will work well with the Yamaha amp.

Your current speakers can be had for £80, so you should see a big improvment with the Jamos. Replacing the amp, with a similarly priced amp won't give any sound improvment IMHO.
