I'm expanding my living room setup from one to two Sonos Play 5s and am unsure which speaker location would be optimal given the layout of my apartment and my usage. I'm looking to create a stereo pair.
I'm attaching the layout of my apartment. The yellow box is where I spend about 80% of my time at home (at the table). The green box is my TV.
In option A, both speakers are located at the corners of the room, facing diagonally towards the main room of the apartment, about 10.5 feet apart.
In option B, both speakers would be facing the couch, about 5 feet apart (probably too close?).
I'm guessing option A would be optimal in terms of filling my apartment with sound. Listening to music is my main use case and 95% of what I use my speakers for. The downside of option A is that it is probably abysmal for home theater given the positioning of the stereo speakers in relation to the couch.
My gut feeling tells me to go with option A and turn off stereo pairing for when I want to watch a movie, but perhaps there's something here I haven't thought of. Any opinions or ideas? Which seems to be the better option to you?
EDIT: I should mention that these are more-or-less my only options in terms of speaker placement due to the positioning of sockets in my home. IRL my couch is longer than in the floor plan, so I cannot place a smaller speaker (like a One) on the other side of my couch. Drilling and mounting is likely out of the question (I'm a renter),
