Worth upgrading?

Hi all, after a spot of advice if possible.

I bought an Onkyo all-in one package last year (HTS6305) and have since bought the following rears as a replacement:

Q ACOUSTICS QAV WALL MOUNT REAR SPEAKERS (PAIR) - available from Superfi UK Visit http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/product_id/4006 for details



I've noticed that RS have got the following centre speaker on sale for £30 tomorrow:

Tannoy MERCURY FC CUSTOM Apple | Offer ends close of business 17/05/11 | Richer Sounds


Is it worth upgrading? Will I find that the centre speaker much better than the one that came with the onkyo out the box?

I appreciate I need to ensure my fronts compliment the centre speaker (or vice versa) but I do plan on upgrading those in the near future, but see this as a good opportunity to upgrade my centre.

I would encourage your opinions...

Thanks,
Matt

The Tannoy will be an upgrade over your current centre but can you still get the matching front L/R speakers to go with it?

Not sure. Would anything else go with this or is my only safe bet the matching l & r's?

Other speakers may match OK depending on how susceptible you are to tonal differences. However, the safest bet is to just get the match fronts.
