I'm sure it will. As the number of speakers increases so does the complication of placement and sometimes the narrowing of the sweet spot. As was said earlier, unless you have a large room, 7.1 doesn't offer much if any benefit. The wide and height surround speakers do much more in terms of adding to the listening experience.
Surprised I can even put such thoughts together...hehehe.
