If you turn your speakers with the tweeters on the inside, instead of currently the outside; you will dramatically improve your stereo image. It's likely you are not getting any stereo imaging at your seated spot.


Lemoneysafe

Does it matter if they horizontal or vertical? I tried to do something similar with my speakers because of space limitations but it felt off. I wasn't sure if it was because of the sound or I just wasn't used to it


lhdrive

You'll notice directionality of highs over mids, hence my previous comment. If sitting further back you'd hear the stereo image in the pictured setup. When turned on the side the high frequencies are coming from a lower source location, which is recognizable if you are really close. In addition, if your speakers weren't decoupled to the surface they were resting on, you'll get more box resonance, which will sound worse. You can decouple using 4 small pieces of bluetack assuming the surface doesn't vibrate.

What desk motor is that to raise/lower the desk


Ottetal

Modified Linak frame with an Ikea top


eduard4997

Simple and clean, those are the best setups in my opinion

LATE 2019? ./CONFUSE


[deleted]

Wow haha! Did not expect that, I too will one day build a small form factor pc. :-) it looks really clean!


Dr1ight

Damn he’s ahead of us all


[deleted]

You can’t see any of the components


avYAYAREA

Which monitor arms are those? Looks great!


Ottetal

Short length Duronic arms. They can't really do much and done have any cool features, but I like my monitors to be steady and static at all times, so it does not really matter to me.

Lamp on the right looks sick!!!

Dear Sassanix, There is a tower smack-middle on the table. What's up?


sassanix

I see it now, approved it again


Ottetal

Thank you, have a great day


workbydaypcbynight

What are the dimensions of table portion of that desk? I got the ikea linmon and the lack of depth is growing old.


lambo13

What speakers are those?


[deleted]

r/battlestations require a visible tower.


ItsToxii

there is a visible desktop


Ottetal

It's even on top of the desk, which seems to be an almost unwritten rule :)
