Personally I don't like the surrounds pointed directly at the listener position. Much of the ambient sounds on concert discs... for example...audience noise, clapping, yelling as well as reflected sound from the arena walls need to sound like they have been reflected. This sounds more like you are there vs. in a living room. It sounds convincible.
If you can't place the surrounds on the side walls, back near the corners of the room, near the rear wall, where the sofa is, then try simply placing them on end tables on either side of the sofa. This won't go along with the beilef that proper placement should be two to three feet above the listeners ears.
