I know I know, corner TV's are awful for surround configuration, but really its our only option.
We just got the house and I purchased a Pioneer VSX-1122-K Receiver. I haven't purchased speakers yet because I don't know what kind of setup to use.
Here is our room setup and really the only way to have furniture in the room:
Ideally I would like to get a 5.1 setup, but realize that the room setup is not "ideal" for this.
Is there a way that I can mount and aim speakers here to get a decent 5.1 setup?
Here is a picture of the room the day we moved in:
TV stand is getting replaced with a real one(not Ikea junk), so if there are any options I have with mounting somehow to maximize space for speakers that is fine as well. Keep in mind there is space for that stand to go deeper into the corner, it was just out a bit for ease of connecting cables.
Is it frowned upon to mount a speaker just above the fireplace and aim it downwards?
Thanks in advance!
As for other options to make more space in that corner, I was thinking of perhaps mounting the TV similar to this:
....but not sure if that would even benefit me much compared to a tv stand.
