My PC is connected to an AV receiver (Denon 1602) and I'm using bookshelf speakers (Tannoy MX1 I believe). Having the speakers at the same plane as the screen and optimally wide apart is obviously impossible because of the corner setup. The two options that I can think of are:

1. Place the speakers on my sides and slightly to the front, toed in my direction. This is the current setup, and it sounds a bit odd.
-or-
2. Place the speakers on each side of the screen and facing me, with no toe in. I will need to hang them so that the don't take up the desk space I'm using for the mouse and peripherals.

Is the second option better? Any other alternatives?

Thanks!

It would be fairly simple to try the second option and see which layout you like best. Since you are using a stereo configuration, keeping the sound centered on the TV should sound better, even if the separation between speakers is not optimal - OR, maybe it is since you are describing a "near field" speaker setup with the listener fairly close to the speakers.

It turns out the second option isn't practical after all. There's a window to the left of the screen and there isn't enough space on the wall below it to attach the speaker. There's also not enough room on the table. I can probably attach some satellite speaker but was hoping to not go into any extra purchases. I guess I'll stick with option 1 for now...
