While it's certainly not a "show-stopper" factor, ideally you'll want to use the same speakers for your Atmos (or DTS:X or Auro) front and rear top arrays in order to achieve seamless front to back panning.

I think your current RC80i would serve just fine, but the 80F/X-LS are better speakers FWIW.

Agreed, with the FF discount I ordered the 80F/X-LS and I also ordered the Emo 5 channel amp - can't wait to get this new gear in and hear the upgrade

Just make sure that:

(1) you give careful study to the Dolby Atmos (and soon to be unveiled) DTS:X speaker layout recommendations before you start cutting holes in your ceiling;

(2) the AVR/SSP you get is capable of processing both both Atmos and DTS:X (wait for the 2015 or 2016 models to hit the streets);

and (3) you position the listener-level speakers no higher than 1.25 times ear-height to allow for adequate separation between the base and overhead layers.
