We hastily moved some things around at home in preparation for both of us needing to work from home full time for the foreseeable future. I still have a lot of work to do in this room, especially considering we started to move post-isolation protocol time, but thought I’d share a look at my current desk setup

A picture of Jason's desk setup

Some notable gear:

  • 13” MacBook Pro (about 3 years old now)
  • LG 5K monitor
  • Amazon Basics monitor arm
  • ScanSnap S1300i
  • Ergodox EZ Keyboard with Godspeed MiTO MT3 keycaps
  • Logitech MX Master 3
  • Rode boom arm
  • Audio Technica ATR 2100 microphone
  • Kanto YU5 speakers
  • Philips Fidelio X2 headphones
  • Steelcase Gesture chair

There’s some stuff not pictured key to my home technology setup, including a Synology 1810+ disk station and Ubiquiti networking gear.

The wiring is a mess, but overall, this set up has worked quite well for the past few days. When I am at my office, I bring the Ergodox and the laptop and that’s it– I have an LG 5K there and MX Master 3 there as well so my setup is fairly “drop in”. I also use my Sony WH1000XM2 headphones there since the office is loud. Ideally, I would have a second Ergodox, a second boom and ATR2100, and a better pair of closed-backed headphones, but I can’t complain.

Oh, and here’s the guitars (pedalboard and Weber Mass 50 attenuator not pictured) that I have behind me in case I need to unwind for a bit.
