How do you find heights?
I still have the original 3 cables from when my LCRs were passive and I have room above the screen so I can add height speakers once I get a processor with Dolby Z or similar. 3D video will go into my cinema before 3D sound will.
When I first read about breaking the horizontal plain, I was not sure why it would benefit. Of course after hearing it, I am sold. The system I heard it on had all main speakers below the screen. It was a random scene that sold me which had as huge tree and the wind blowing the leaves and the sound effect could be heard higher up like it be in real life.
Wides are useful too but unless they can be integrated into a real cinema, I can't see them ever being used. I think DREDD was mixed for both heights and wides but because it 7.1 on BD, works perfectly fine on my system as well. I guess the BD is a sweetened version of the cinema soundtrack.
I love my Constant Image Height system!
