Just spotted this full system setup on ebay, which is a perfect example of the classic British flat earth sound of the late ’80s/early ’90s. Consisting of a Ion Systems amp, Linn CD player, Roksan turntable, Nytech tuner and Royd speakers. No details of the Royd model, but at first glance, they could be A7’s/A14/Conistons, maybe even Sintra’s. Could well make a bargain for a happy punter.
Edit: Item has been relisted as separate auctions. I’ve updated above links to the Royd Sorcerer auctions.
Added a review of the Royd Abbot from Hi-Fi Choice, May 1993. The Abbot was intended to supersede Apex, however as you read this review, had some teething problems and wasn’t quite as well received as perhaps hoped.
Since starting this website I have been inundated with requests regarding where you can buy Royd loudspeakers. Since Royd Audio Co Ltd is no longer in business and manufacturing speakers, this only leaves the second hand channels. As well as patience, knowing where to look can be key to this dilemma. As such I have created a new ‘Buy Royds’ section to the website, where you’ll find all the current Royd auctions on and links to the best classifieds websites around the web that often feature Royd speakers.
