My house is pre-wired for 5.1...so it'll take a considerable amount of work to add more speakers with the reciever upstairs across the house.

To be honest, No
It like surround speakers, a lot less important than your 3 fronts.
Some like the surrounds to have the same signature of sound as there front stage, I fall into this camp
Even if there is a lot less action into them, this is why the surrounds do not really need to be match.
For Atmos, I suspect the same.
For me since it is my only Hobby, I intend to have All speakers matching even if it is a lot more expensive.
To run those wires into the ceiling will require about a week of work for me.
The space to get in the in-between (ceiling of the theater and floor of the main floor), is very tight, even for me 128lb.
On the left of the equipment's and right side of the furnace (you have to go about 3 and 1/2 ft above, 10 inches of space available and go between 2 vertical studs [18 inches apart]), once there I got about 4 inches to work between the ceiling and floor.
Not to mention than since wires do get snag once in a while, and I will be doing-it by my self, I need to go through that crawled space a few time (pull the wire, snag then back down, unsnag, then back up, and so on
So I intend to do-it by stages;
-get the speakers and install them first
-then, another Outlaw Audio Amp (less powerful
than my current one)
-last, a new Audio/video Processor.
Since I do not like to get into owning money, to my credit card or bank, I figure it will take me about 2 years to complete.
