yeah, if I've got the choice, I would put the surround may be a foot or so lower. however, if you look at this rendering below, you'll see there's the walk out sliding door right under the surround speaker. thus, I can't put this any lower than what it is now.
as for putting up 7.1, two more rear surround, in the room, well, I'm sitting only 2' from the back wall! it won't make much of a difference from 5.1 to 7.1 in such close distance (and small room) between the side surround and rear surround!! if I've got a bigger room, then yes, I sure will go for 7.1.
