Surround speaker pairing for 8341?

Planning to expand my stereo 8341 setup to 5.1.2  surround sound for music, movies, and gaming. What would you recommend as rear speakers? Listening distance will be around 4 feet from all speakers. I was thinking of going with the 8030C, 8330A, or 8320A. What benefit would the 83x0 have over 80x0 series if I'm not going to use GLM (will use Dirac Live). Would the timber and sound quality be much different than 8331's as surround speakers?
