    Late to the party, but I would always choose a 5.1 with dipole surrounds over a 7.1 or having high front (presence) speakers. So much 7.1 is just 5.1 with an artificial rear surround added, plus with two dipoles, the surround speakers are less obvious. The room plan shown is particularly suited for dipoles, since the back is uneven, and doesn't have a good location for two matched surrounds anyway.
