Monitor Height with 7ft. ceiling?

I am putting together a room for mixing only. The room unfortunately has 7 ft. ceilings. I am treating the ceiling between the monitors and my mix position. Currently I am looking at stands for my ADAM p33A's, and as much as I would like to get adjustable height stands, I can't afford them right now. With a 7 ft ceiling, would it be better to have 36 in or 42 in stands?

Easy, the 42" stands. You want the acoustic center at ear height, and not at the mid point of the height.

Nice choice of monitors!

The 36" are nice if you mix in a lounge chair...

Really, the difference is negligible if you have the ceiling treated and the desk reflections under control.
