Looking for some help with speakers. Have a big family room being wired for surround sound (TV over fireplace, pretty big room) and the wiring guy recommended ceiling speakers. How does the sound from these compare with normal ones for a 5.1 system?

The configuration and models he recommended are below. Subwoofer will be added later, and I'll have to pick out a receiver. I really, really appreciate anyone's thougts on this setup, Niles speakers in general, etc.

Home Systems Proposal

Family Room Home Theater Speaker System:
1 pair Niles CM730DS 7 Directed Soundfield In-Ceiling Loudspeakers to be installed from L&R.
1 Niles CM760DSC 7 Directed Soundfield In-Ceiling Center Channel Loudspeaker.
1 pair Niles CM730DS 7 Directed Soundfield In-Ceiling Loudspeakers to be installed in rear.
5 Niles CM700DSBKT 7 DS new construction rough-in brackets.
16 gauge CL3 rated speaker cable will be used.

HDTV Pre-Wire:
1 Key Digital HDP16 16 HDMI cable run from equipment rack location to future TV location above fireplace.
1 Monster Interlink 201 20 subwoofer cable.

Thanks a lot.
