Just brought a Denon AVR x3400H to replace an old Marrantz SR5004(not blown away by the Denon yet even tho I never ran the Marrantz Audyssey in the new room), and I would like to take advantage of the Atmos feature in a 5.1.2 layout as it seems more robust for different formats than a front heights layout which I had always planned on doing with the Marrantz. Attached is my layout currently minus the TFL and TFR Atmos ceiling speakers, TFL and TFR are located according to Dolby's specs of inline with FL and FR and 80º from MLP ear level. Luckily this is just outside of the ceiling rose, but I still really want to avoid cutting big holes in the ceiling for in-ceiling speakers.
Room: plaster walls and ceiling, hardwood floors
Ceiling Height: 3020mm
Current speakers: Jamo fronts:S606 Center and Sur:S60 Sub:Sub300
Here's what I see my options are:
Mount small bookshelf/surrounds/satellites to the ceiling on an omnimount and either down fire or angle slightly, these could either be the surrounds I currently have and replace them with Bipoles for better dispersion along back wall or something small like jamo A340. But I'm not sure if surround speakers like this have enough dispersion for Atmos ceiling duty, I can't find dispersion in the specs for most speakers? This would also be the ugliest solution. Mount flater more diffused speakers like https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Jamo-ART-wall-mounted-speakers-made-in-Denmark/253944970508 or some sort of low profile bipole? Mount outdoor speakers like option 1, not sure outdoor speakers are the best? If they were white shouldn't stick out too much. In-ceiling speakers like Jamo contractor series or Yamaha NS-IC800s, I really don't want 6-8" holes in my ceiling as it's a litte too permanent and close to the ceiling rose. Also regarding layout would there be much difference in mounting the ceiling speakers symmetrical to the MLP as Dolby wants it or symmetrical to the room?
What do you guys think? I don't see a problem with mounting on ceiling except for aesthetics given the 3m ceiling allows plenty of room between ear level and speaker. Also any other suggestions you have to improve the less than ideal room layout would be appreciated?

Second owner, minimal use for less than one month while waiting for the new marantz. 7.1.2 atmos ht setup driving the fronts. Very good conditions.
There is no option to rent Blu-ray but the video easy kisok .
Hence I rented few titles to hear on my new dolby Atmos theatre .
But to my surprise the rented Blu-ray did not have Atmos option when I put it my player.
Its sad I can't check before renting if it has Atmos encoding in it?
And disappointed that Australia is receiving disk which are not Dolby Atmos encoded? Where as on IMDb it does mention the movies released on Atmos.
Feel like my money down the drain on this Atmos setup and can't buy every title from JB hi-fi.
Dono what to do!
