RE: speaker advice/opinions sought

Welcome...

I've no idea about ceiling speakers or Sonos. FWIW, IMO you'll be better off looking at traditional speakers, as the ones I've heard in shops so on and so forth tend to be less than great, but my knowledge of ceiling speakers is a little thin. Like anything it could depend on your budget.

Seeing as you have a Arcam Solo Neo, it'll need better speakers than the RS1s. I'd still stick with MA but look at RX1 or GX range. otherwise, I'd look at Focal 806V, PMC DB1i or B&W 685.
