Best in ceiling speakers for Atmos system?

So I have an ONKYO TX-NR646 paired with Energy LCR and leftovers from my old Onkyo for the rears and surrounds. I was wondering if there are any recommendations for ceiling speakers for Atmos to replace my surrounds?

Just adding ceiling speakers to make an Atmos set up...back speakers will stay, the side surrounds will be replaced with ceiling speakers

Best would be the Monitor Audio. Very pricey but the sound is fantastic.

The side surround speakers are important for a truly immersive Atmos setup. I wouldn't recommend removing them.

Absolutely. One of the reasons Atmos is effective is because of the height differential between side surround and ceiling speaker.
