All the speakers are using Omnipolar technology of Mirage.
Thanks a lot.
I wil venture an answer to this one. First let me preface this by saying I have never personally listened to any type of omnipolar speaker design. So with that in mind consider the following...
Based on what I read online I am unsure about the directionality of the omnipolar design and therefore unsure as if it is best suited for home theater type scenarios where DSX comes into play. Possibly a more directional speaker choice would be better suited in this type of configuration, but I do see they sell 5.1 packages in this style so I am sure they are better than I think.
The Onkyo NR1007 supports high OR wide from what I can tell from online specs. The High/Wide channels are 20hz-20khz full bandwidth channels that are processed like any other in the receiver with regards to bass management so using the Omnisats for height channel speakers would do just fine as long as you are happy with the imaging of the 'OMNI' design, any low end that needs better handling will be redirected to the sub based on the crossover frequency selected during setup.
Hope this helps.
