Advice on speakers for Auro 3d


Active Member
I am looking to add some speakers, for Auro 3d, to my current set up. My room layout is a compromise, to handle daily life at the same time as enjoyment of surround sound.
I have a couple of questions;
Do height speakers need to be of the same brand as base layer (hopefully not)?
Are on wall, angled speakers, such as the Arendal 1961 Heights ok to use (as they are angled is the more for Atmos than Auro)?

My current 5.1 layout is:
2 x SF Venere 3.0
2 x SF Venere 2.5
Sub is a legacy Arendal 1.5
Processor is Marantz AV8802A with Auro 3d purchased
Room size is 4.7m x 3.6m, although the TV and fronts are on the long wall, and the layout is such that I have these towards to the right of the middle of the room, due to the door.

Ideally you'd have the same brand of speakers all around but there are plenty of people who mix brands. Personally, I use the same brand.

The Arendals will be fine but you may need to experiment with placement to find the best position for your room.
