Hi everyone. First post here.
I really like having the TV in the corner like that so that the couch can face the windows and so that the TV is viewable from pretty much anywhere in the room. I can sneak a peak of it from the bathroom too.
But I'm wondering about my sound. I'd like to achieve the following, in order of priority:
1) Watch TV / movie from my couch
2) Watch TV from my desk
3) Listen to music from my desk and anywhere in the room (party mode)
4) Possibly install a projector and have it project to the main window (the one with AC unit in front), and set up chairs everywhere in the room.
About my set-up: I split the HDMI cable going to my second pc monitor and wired that to my receiver. I wired my cable box to my receiver as well. So I just switch the receiver input to toggle between cable and my computer.
Currently the speaker placement is good for 1+2, but they are too close together to get any real stereo effect. I'm ok with that, and there isn't really an alternative. For 3+4 the sound appears to be coming from the corner of the room rather than filling the room a bit more as I'd like. It's still ok.
I thought of mounting the speakers to the right and left of the main window, about 2 feet down from the ceiling. This is perfect for 3+4, but for 1+2 it might be awful. I'm wondering how awkward will it sound having the TV be below the right speaker, and sitting closer to the left one?
Can get a soundbar for the TV, and mount the speakers up high? Are there receivers that let me toggle audio output?
Thank you for your thoughts,

Put the TV on the wall where your couch currently is with the couch directly across, facing the TV. Put your computer desk on the blue wall where that tiny table that seems to serve no purpose is, and hang those speakers at ear level on each side of the TV.
