Most are bookshelf speakers in-name-only, not designed for purpose.

A bit like saying that the P3ESR is a desktop speaker when it was not designed for this purpose?

Near-field would be more accurate.

Even taking into account the Lilliputian size of the typical UK sitting room, in most domestic applications that would be "desktop" speakers.

Sorry missed that you had a t/t. IMHO if you are going to do anything at all then it’s a better t/t arm and cartridge. 


I have to agree with this. The role of the tonearm is often underestimated. Upgrading from an OL Encounter 3C to Conqueror 3C was a jaw dropping experience for me. I think it makes a bigger difference than a cart upgrade. Secondly I’d look at the cart. If you don’t feel like going down the MC route, something like the AN IQ3 will be quite a bit better than the 1042.

Saying that, I think your system is great as is!

Agree with almost always arm upgrade before cartridge upgrade.
