What to add as rears to Beam and a Sub for 5.1?

I already own a Beam and Sub and I am now looking to add a couple of speakers as rears to make it a 5.1 setup.

From my current understanding, the logical solution is to add a couple of Play 1's, because once added to the setup the Beam, Sub and Play 1s will operate as a single cohesive entity, so AirPlay 2 and Alexa is cover by this functionality being available on the Beam.

I realise I won't be able to independently use AirPlay 2 with the Play 1's, but I can't think of a reason I would want to, and so, for my desired solution, the only real difference will be the aesthetics of the Play 1's' silver mesh against the Ones' white mesh....and the cost saving between the 1's and Ones.

...or am I missing something?

Thanks

That sounds like a well-researched, accurate summary of the situation. Unless I'm missing something......
