You can now find a load of nice hi res photos of the Royd RR2’s, thanks to Richard ‘2by2’.
You can now find another review of the Royd Sorcerers, from What Hi-Fi? July 1998. It features the Sorcerers in a group test of eight other competing speakers of the day.
I’d like to thank Doug Maskew for sending in a scan of the promotional booklet that came with his brand new Sorcerers from 15 years ago.
I have added some nice photos of a pair of Coniston R’s. Thanks to Martin ‘joydivider’ for these, who them speakers for next to nothing in a pawn shop!
As went the infamous tag line of Royd Audio, whose loudspeakers were an underrated gem of the British Hi-Fi industry. Each pair was hand built by Joe Akroyd in Telford, UK from the early ’80s until the start of the 21st Century. Over this time, Joe produced many unique and exceptional loudspeakers, all of which captured the hearts of their owners. Regret only came to those who sold them on prior to a misjudged upgrade…
Within this site you can find a mass of information and resources about these legendary and cult loudspeakers. For new users just stumbling on their first Royds’ and long time audiophile addicts wishing to reminisce over all the models; I hope that you will enjoy them for many years to come.
Please note: although www.roydaudio.com was originally the official UK Royd company website, this is no longer the case. This site has no affiliation with Royd Loudspeaker Co. Ltd and is now simple run and contributed by fans, for fans of Royd Audio loudspeakers.
Have added a review of the A7 Series II and Coniston from Hi-Fi Review magazine, from 1987. Contains come useful insight into these older speaker models.
