Well, that will do it. Was able to move my ups and place the speakers on their sides behind the monitor. Still sound good. Have since placed the ups at a more secure angle.

Luckily I did buy a second in case I ever decided to do them both that way.

The height of the center monitor is correct. The top of a monitor should be at eye level for proper comfort. Distance wise it's at arms length from my sitting position. I do think I could get away with rising it up enough to put speakers under it if it came to that though.

Yeah I'm down for suggestions for monitor mounts that can take a 34" uw. I'm not 100% sure I want to deal with mounting my monitors right now, but, it's something I look into from time to time.
It's annoying that not all computer monitors have VESA mounting. Every user I support at work gets a dual monitor mount with matching monitors. I usually just reorder the same ones, but they eventually get discontinued and I have to find something else.

As for monitor height, I'm fairly tall so most people's setups look a little low to me.

I don't have any firsthand experience with mounting a big UW since all my stuff is either 16:9 or 16:10. The mount I linked in my last comment looks like it should work, but I am not sure without double checking the measurements of all your monitors. Someone in the reviews section has a 34" ROG Swift with dual 21.5s but they are both in portrait. IDK if it has enough adjustment to push that left side out far enough to keep that monitor in landscape orientation.

JBL LSR305P MK2's are extremely hard to beat for the price. Truly a different league than any Logitech / Creative or similar computer speaker setup.

Unfortunately those would physically be too large for OP's setup unless they decide they are OK with speaker stands/wall mounting them. I agree that they are a nice sounding option though. I am listening to my JBL 306p MKII's right now

Yep, I've seen he went with BOSE. As much as people bash on BOSE's home cinema speakers and their older particle-board shoeboxes like the 301's, their computer speakers and headphones are decent, especially for their size.
Moms got herself a Soundlink Revolve BT speaker and you would not believe how much punch it has, albeit the mids are still hollow and tinny.

Yeah sucks these can't be mounted out the box. They're pretty nice monitors. Were fairly cheap, 1080p, 21.5" ips glossy.

Last time I looked into mounting my current displays the conclusion was the best way to do it would be to mount each on its own arm.


_______________________________________________

I'm going to have to look into the weight distribution. I can tell I shifted that ups's weight. Feels like the desk has picked up a little movement when typing. Before it was stable since I mounted it to the wall to cope with everything I have on it (used to have 2 large speakers mounted to the rear edges). Basically I think the main weight of the ups is beyond the legs of the desk making it very back heavy. The ups weighs 25 lbs.

*Might have to make a shelf for the ups or something.

Yeah at first I wasn't too impressed but switching from youtube to amazon music made a huge difference in their sound quality. They're sounding pretty good with what I listen to which is mainly 90's alternative.

Some big comfortable headphones would fit in there nicely, and can sound better than little desktop speakers

I can't do them. Usually I can't stand any headphone that covers my ears. For co-op gaming I picked up a wireless pair of sony ps4 gold headset which I've been happy with. Most earphones I've tried that covered my ears made me too hot and claustrophobic.

For your speaker positioning you could try putting some stands behind the monitors for them (could stack books / boxes for testing) and angle them at your ears (usually want tweeter pointing at ear level for best sound). You don't have a ton of space but if you moved that UPS you could probably fit something there. Anyway just an idea to try out.
