This is an old but relatively accurate picture of my current setup:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

As you can see, the window makes wall mounting a front left height speaker unlikely. I figure my best bet is to get some speaker stands. However, that'd mean I'd need stands that are at least 60" (ideally 64") tall. Are there any such stands? I've checked the usual suspects like Sanus and Omnimount with not luck. I even saw some DJ stands but they only extended to 50".

You're not going to get the height effect with those speakers only a foot or two above your mains. If you want to do height speakers, then they should be as high up as possible (well separated from your main L/R speakers).

I'm gonna be following the DTS Neo: X approach so I need them directly above my mains. I chose around 64" inches because that's how high my side surrounds are and they seem pretty high to me.

As reference:


Audyssey visual:

This visual from my Denon 4520CI manual, makes it easier to grasp all the 7.1/9.1/11.1 speaker layout.

Here is the DTS Neo:X™ visual:

I get what you're saying, mtbdudex. But read the text in the picture you posted of the DTS layout.
Quote:
The Front-Height speakers (see figure below: Lh/Rh) should be positioned 30-degrees from center and directly above the Front left and right speakers.
That's different than Audyssey which recomments 30-degrees for the L and R speakers but 45-degrees for the Lh and Rh speakers. And since I'm more keen on the DTS layout, it makes sense I place the Height speakers directly above my Front speakers.
