What size computer screen is right for your room?

setting up a new studio

I got this excellent question from a follower last week:

"I’m looking for buying a new computer screen/monitor and would like a modern 34” or 38” ultra wide screen. But because of my small room I have some problems to not have the screen interfere with the line of sight of the speakers. I could place them higher and tilt them down. Or place them closer right next to the screen etc." 

"What screen size would be appropriate in which situation?“

Fair point!

Computer screens are getting bigger and bigger, but is there a too big?

Especially if you’re room is small and you can’t place your speakers endlessly far apart.

Let me show you what options you have, what compromises you can make without causing too much trouble, and how to find the right size computer screen for your home studio:
