Been working in this space for a while now. I reconfigure parts from time to time. It's so tough with the limited amount of space here in Japan but I used what I got - a table that we didn't use and boxes from the machines I bought that are impossible to store away. This is the living room and inside there is a leather sofa and two speakers either side. I am desperately sad about the position of the speakers sitting either side of sofa but my wife is feels even worse because a third of the living room is my studio. Shouldn't complain really, have to get on with it.
I will get some stands that come up to the side of the sofa but that means I have to lose the Adam's or NS-10's as the aesthetics are displeasing to my wife. I could live with just because sound beats everything!
I think I'm doing the best I can with the space I've got but if anyone has any suggestions then I'm willing to try it out. Pretty much thought of every type of layout though lol
