Atmos/4k and receiver upgrade question

I already bought 4 polk audio speakers for my ceilings and cut the holes today, wasn't as bad as i thought it would be but still need to run the wires. Looking at doing 5.1.4 Atmos if not too much more than 5.1.2. My Cinepro amp is 200x5 so it powers all my main channels. Want a receiver that has pre-outs for all channels but would be able to power my 4 or 2 ceiling speakers.
Was looking at the Denon 4400/4500 and 3500, also the Onkyo RZ830. How important is the Audyssey EQ since Onkyo doesn't have it? In Canada everything is expensive.. The Denon 3500 is $799 CDN, the Denon 4500 is $1500 CDN. Any other options?
Here is a picture of my room, any thoughts about the placement of the Atmos speakers could only do so much because of studs, etc in the ceilings.
Sorry for the mess, was painting and fixing all weekend. Any help would be very much appreciated.
The 4500 is an excellent AVR . I found Audyssey did a better job integrating the speakers and subs. Go for the Denon.
