What are your sides? What room correction will you be using?

What are your left/right speakers? It is very important to match the sonic signature of all 3 front speakers. Otherwise, it becomes very apparent that you have different sounds when sounds from movies pan across the front stage. It also can cause problems if the center has a weaker or stronger midrange.
I don't know that B&W necessarily has more clarity than Focal. However, I think the B&W has a much thicker and meatier midrange. The focal tends to come across thin sounding (unless you very warm electronics such as McIntosh or similar).
In my opinion, I like the sound of B&W better, but if you are considering getting a B&W center, you should also switch your left/right to B&W.
