I understand completely what you are saying but given the RS-7s aren't a dipole (or bipole as you are now saying) and instead have horns directed towards the potential listener at that angle it may work for some and I wouldn't necessarily tell the op to buy new speakers because it can't work. Can I Use Dipole Speakers in a 7.1.4 Atmos Setup? | Sound & Vision (soundandvision.com)
From the link:
To, to adhere to Dolby recommendations, the answer is yes, you should replace your current dipolar surrounds with direct-radiating speakers installed at ear-height. That being said, some on our staff rather like the effect of dipole speakers on the sides in an Atmos setup. Since you already have dipole speakers in place, there’s no harm in upgrading the rest of your system for Atmos compatibility before determining if it’s time to replace your dipole surrounds. See how you like it, then decide.
Gotcha. I only listen to multichannel material with a single MLP and have preached Direct radiating for almost 2 decades. That said, I was surprised how well RS-7s sounded on that same material when I had a 5.1 system and was moving around the living space doing chores. Again, I am not discounting your recommendation only the veracity countering others' opinions.
