Thanks for these ideas!
I didn't realize Ascend had a smaller set, I bought the Sierras a while ago and I don't think they had this Luna at the time - I'll keep those in mind.
I think I had seen the A10s and read that because of the cabinet material they weren't ideal when not on their stands.

See I would have never thought to look at something that big, but you are correct, they could squeeze in there. I like the package deal with the sub.

It's possible, but a couple things are at play. The desk is in front of a window (you can see the blinds), so the speakers would have to be off-center or on-center and very far apart. It is also a sit-stand desk, so the height changes. If they were high enough up I guess that might not be as much of an issue.

KEF LSX would fit but over budget though they are amplified.
I had seen the KEF LSX and the more I think about it the more I like the idea of powered speakers like this for desktop use since it is a tidier package for a smaller listening area.
Does anyone have experience with the Vanatoo Transparent Zero
? The fact that they are sloped downward on the back would put them safely underneath the monitor arms, they have a built in tilt that would seem good for the space, they seem to review well and have sub out.
