From the brochure:-

THE ENVOY, messenger of musical integrity.
The Envoy is a new stand or shelf mounted loudspeaker available in either veneer or vinyl finish. The side porting of these reflex loaded loudspeakers makes them room friendly and easy to site.

The Envoy is designed to reproduce all styles of music with power and emotion, without compromising the wealth of detail available within each performance. Equally at home with analogue or digital source The Envoy handles stereo imaging precisely.

Further advances in bass unit construction combined with the latest computer techniques for analysing transients allows us to provide the music lover with the opportunity to benefit from our constant refinement and innovation in loudspeaker technology. The accuracy with which The Envoy handles complicated rhythms and detail demonstrates these advances. The Envoy will make a rewarding addition to any high fidelity system.

Surprisingly rare on the second hand market. I’ve only seen two pairs in the last 5 years. The first I brought for £50 (but one driver had been replaced) and another pair sold on ebay in Nov 2012 for £77.
