As with most audio aficionados, we would gladly sacrifice "5.1" for sound quality. I think that's the point that's been regurgitated over and over in this and the other thread. Even a good pair of stereo headphones/speakers have great directionality indication as mentioned by Pelt.

Again I am emphasizing the fact that in the small trade-off of the 5.1 with a small loss of directionality precision, you can obtain stellar sound quality in return. Logically, it's a great trade-off.
