Desk placement in triangular shaped room

Hi,

I've built a room in the attic which I eventually hope to use as a home mixing studio, although my wife has recently hijacked it since being forced to work from home. The room has a triangular prism like shape and I've attached a drawing of it in both feet and meters. I need to decide on a permanent place for my desk, which is limited because of the sloped walls. Where in the room would you avoid placing the desk? Is having the monitors directly under the sloped ceiling a mistake? My monitors will probably sit on desktop monitor stands. I plan to treat the room once I get my gear moved in.

Thanks!

in that drawing I'd put it on the wall to the right opposite the door
that's basically the layout of my studio

I would start facing the wall opposite the door, so the speakers aim at the door. This lets you fire down the longest dimension, which is a good place to start. Some of the bass will leak out the door/rear wall, making your space acoustically larger at frequencies below what the wall/door contains within the room.

If you turn the peak of the ceiling into a giant broadband corner trap that would be a nice big bass trap, and handle your mids/highs in that area without taking up any floor space.

The angled part of the walls/ceiling could get broadband panels so your stereo imaging is in tact.
