    So after failing to achieve an atmos setup due to my ceiling not reflecting the sound from upfirers, and being unable to fit ceiling speakers, it looks like my best option will be front heights.
    I like what I read on the dali alteco c1, and the svs elevation. They both seem to be the sort of thing I'm looking for. Any thoughts on how these would match up to the new monitor audio silver range?
    Any other speaker suggestions of a similar type?

    I'd say the SVS elevation's would be the best suited as they're easier to drive at 87dB together with matching ohms of the Monitor Audio Silvers @ 8Ohms.

    This should give your amp an easier time driving all the speakers too :)

    Good spot, I didn't notice the low 83 sensitivity on the dalis, though I've been told sound wise they should be a decent match.

    I think both speakers are able to produce a good match to the Monitor Audio's, just one is a lot better for your system

    Ok, makes sense to go for the svs, will match my sub as well.

    So I went for the svs elevation, actually purchased from Audio visual online after Shane's advice above.
    Managed to install them in the side height position from svs instructions, set to top front on the amp (may change this to top centre on the next audyssey run) and all good so far. Getting sound from overhead now :)
