Adding 5.1 to 2.1 - £1.5K budget

I need two rear and one centre speaker and also an AV amp to complement my existing set up, so does anyone have advice on decent s/h kit to look out for.

Also, any thoughts on apportioning the £1.5K budget between these purchases?

My friend, who has an impressive surround set up, is encouraging me to spend a decent chunk on the centre speaker and ÁV amp, and much less on the rears.

Current kit, in brief:

Nova/250.2
KEF KC62 sub
Pro Ac D2R
Sony XBP 700 UHD

(I’d just posted this to Hi-Fi section before spotting the dedicated Home Theatre area. Sorry for duplication).

Marantz NR1711. £750
Monitor Audio Silver C350. £400
Monitor Audio Silver 50. £400
