chain and sprocket combination

so I bought a chain, RK 520 XSO RX-Ring Chain - 106 Links 73.20 w/free shipping from Amazon, now for sprockets, I am wanting to buy a supersprox rear sprocket from for 79.99 w/free shipping, I am considering the supersprox front sprocket but it is only 15 teeth yet I want to up it to 16. I have only found one site who sells that one but it is pricey coming from Australia, Shipping is more than the cost of the part. Does anyone know of any reason I can't use a JT or Renthal front sprocket with a Supersprox rear. Both would be 520 chain pitch.

Their is no requirement to use same manufacturer sprockets front and rear. I can't remember the last time I had that situation. I use a JT rear and an AFAM front currently.

Rocky Mountain has 16 tooth and sprocket chain sets for very reasonable prices.
