Except in this case I think you should do it. Like I said, you'll get excellent base layer vs height layer separation with the Top Fronts of a 7.1.4 set-up or Top Middles of a 7.1.2 set-up. So you...

My personal preference is for the wider soundstage that PLIIx delivers, so DSU would not be my first choice for processing 2-channel music.
