Is it possible to get a good stereo setup?

I just moved into my apartment and I'm trying to find a get a good 5.1 setup going. I spent some time thinking about it and can't come up with a good solution, so I figured I'd run it by you guys before I gave up and settled for sub-par audio. I realize it'd be easier if I moved my desk to my bedroom, but I'd rather have a sub-par setup than do that. So here's my setup:

My current setup
Picture of the room

Exact Measurements:
Room - 12.5 feet x 11.5 feet
Couch - 85 inches x 40 inches
Desk - 42 inches x 31 inches
TV Stand - 53 inches x 21 inches
TV - 40 inches wide

Like I said, I don't expect to be able to get a good setup in here without moving the desk, but I just wanted to make sure I hadn't overlooked an option.

Please define your opinion of what good sound is.

In this case, good sound would mean an ideal speaker setup.

I'd rotate it 90 degrees, and possibly forego the laptop desk entirely.

I concur with Bass. Your bar would also be more open to the room that way - wouldn't have to squeeze behind the couch to get to it.
