I looked at the photos and it seems a hopeless situation. I'd recommend good headphones (when seated at the desk) and suggest wall mounting the speakers - either side of the TV and pointing down a bit - to get them off the desk/away from corners higher than the bed etc. (Better than very tall stands.)
I don't know if the bed can me moved a bit to give a more 'on-axis' listening/viewing position.

Ok Chebby and thanks. Tbh I hadnt looked at mateys foaties but will in a min.
Oh dear he isnt going to get much joy from that is he. Out of your 2 options I would go with headphones too, and be done with. As it stands imo he has a couple of chances for it to sound ok. A dogs chance and none.
It's easier - room-placement-wise - to have my speaker set up like the following:(2nd from right): http://images.planetmath.org/cache/objects/149/js/img1.pngI.e a really flat isosceles triangle; the speakers far apart (about 2m) angled heavily inwards.Is this a bad idea?
I'd have the speakers a bit flatter and leave them in their locations this should sound better when your are listening in bed. For sessions when you are at the desk, get some headphones (as mentioned before).
Ideally, for listening that closely, you'd be better off with mini monitors on your desk. HiFi speakers will not image correctly at close range, regardless of position.
