Ultimate Macbook Pro 5K Dual Monitor Desk Setup Tour!

by birtanpublished on September 28, 2020

what's up everybody this is Danny welcome to my first setup tour video this is my ultimate 5k dual monitor setup this took a long time to build because I wanted it to be perfect I went for a simple clean and natural look with

A darker theme I think it looks amazing so let's jump right in I've had this amazing desk and monitors for a while then human-scale gave me their freedom headrest and maid monitor arm and element disk test light to try

And color wear and grove maid came through on the keyboard and trackpad in the rest is history the foundation of this setup is the BDI sequel lifts desk in a natural walnut finish I get questions about the desk all the time

This is a premium sitting stand desk with multiple programmable settings and I chose this desk because it has a very unique tempered glass matte black top on it and I think the color combo with the walnut finish is incredible the motor is

Incredibly smooth it's easy to control and it's almost silent it's one of the best motors that I have used on a sit and stand desk so far some people love them and some people hate them but I find it useful for breaking up long

Editing cycles and research sessions it's good for you to get up once in a while and I find it that it makes me a little bit more productive at times I do fight getting up sometimes because I think I found the most comfortable desk

Chair ever and this is the human scale freedom headrest all wrapped up in this beautiful dark brown leather I've had a ton of office chairs and none of them have been this good it's got perfect lumbar support it's fully adjustable in

Every way from the headrest to the back support I've been using this for months now and loving it and sometimes I just kick back and catch up on my favorite videos in this chair it's just too comfortable

This is a high-end chair and while it's not the cheapest option it's worth every penny in my opinion the dual monitors you see here are the LG ultra fine 5k since this is a Mac setup this was the perfect choice for me this is the same

Panel pretty much as in the 5k iMac so the resolution is incredible for video editing its color accurate it gets nice and bright and while admit they're not the most attractive monitors in the world

I think they fit this set up really well to give it a cleaner look I took them off the stands and place them on the human scale freedom dual monitor arms the install was super easy it's just a clamp mechanism and it's very sturdy

And also fully adjustable to whatever angle you need for the best viewing angle all of this is powered by the 15-inch MacBook Pro with touch bar on a rein design Space Gray M stand connected with two Thunderbolt three cables and

That's it the MacBook is fully powered by those cables so for video editing this gives me a ton of real estate I can see my Final Cut Pro timeline on one display and see my video and Colour information on the other and this is the

Ultimate way to edit videos most people struggle with cable management but for me it was super easy the cables from the monitor just got tucked into the built-in slots on the monitor arm and the BDI sequel lift is unlike any other

Desk that I've ever had there are so many cable management features that are built in right on the leg itself even on the bottom of the desk cables for the motor are notched into the desk for a super clean look the

Motor is tucked into the frame and all the cables are held together with built-in straps and there's even they provide a cable tray that you can mount on the side of your choice to pack away your power strip and all of your plugs

So basically the cable management is taken care of for you if you want an all-in-one solution you won't be disappointed with the sequel lift all you see visible is just one cable going into the wall to get more

Storage on my sequel lift I went for the optional drawer you don't see this much on sit and stand desk so I was excited to put it on I'm able to keep all of my accessories in here that I need right away

So with that MacBook Pros you know you have to ask them that's just a reality I thought about keeping my MacBook in here instead of putting it on a stand because there are cutouts for cables but I was afraid of

The ventilation and thermals but you can easily put hubs or docks in here with no problems I also went with the side file cabinet storage option it matches perfectly and also extends my desk area some and of course instead of files I

Keep a lot of my tech in here stuff that I'm reviewing or miscellaneous stuff it's really handy you can extend the desk even more on the opposite side but this room the desk is in doesn't support that without blocking the door so I

Decided to use it as a secondary desktop I have my Microsoft Surface book here Amazon echo dot and my test headphones of the month and above that I have the Nano leaf Aurora lighting system there you might have seen this in some other

Setups before but if you haven't seen it yet it's a modular lighting setup that you can control with your phone and even has home kit support for voice control with your iPhone there are a ton of color options and presets I like the

Unique looks that it gives the office especially in the dark I added a life exceed light strip to the desk to give it the ability to add some color to it depending on my mood but most of the time I just leave it off to keep that

Clean and natural look on the right is my room audio headphone stand this is the black model and this thing is built like a tank with its full metal build it's easy to adjust the height of the sand it holds two headphones and right

Now I am rocking the fan-favorites the audio technica m50x with a six black and gold D brand skin on it and one of my favorites of all time the opal PM threes for the inputs I decided to go wireless for the cleanest look I decided to stick

With the Apple magic keyboard and the Apple Magic Trackpad both of these are custom colored in matte black by color where they look absolutely incredible and match this set up so well the walnut accessories for the keyboard and

Trackpad are beautifully constructed by Grove made they don't affect the function of the keyboard or trackpad and tie in that walnut and black theme perfectly but if you prefer maple grove made also have that available I made a

Separate video about this keyboard combo so I'll link that below want to see more about it I wanted to add a lamp to complete the set up and I think sometimes this is the hardest thing to do and I think I found the

Perfect one this is the jet-black human scale element disk LED light it fits the modern look of the desk it gives me the flexibility to charge my smartphones or tablets with a built-in USB port and also an AC plug just in case I want to

Charge my camera batteries or whatever I want it has a 330 lumen output with only using seven watts of power and you can turn on a lamp with the power button or change the brightness easily but the

Mode I keep it in is where it uses the built-in sensors so the lamp turns itself off when you're not there but when it senses that you are there it turns on the lamp automatically this is an awesome feature so what do you guys
