Buy Royd Speakers!

Royd Speakers - Royd Minstrel Speakers
Royd Audio Minstrels

The original Royd Audio stopped producing speakers around 2002 when Joe Akroyd went into retirement. As such, the only way to get hold of original Royd speakers (and spares) is through the second-hand market. The obvious choice is eBay, followed by the various classifieds and small ads found around the internet. Adverts featuring the Royd Minstrel for sale are by far the most common, so you can be selective. Other models are rarer, do not come up often and can demand higher prices.

In 2014, Royd Audio was reborn, led by Adam Norbury and have released brand new and up to date designs inspired by Joe Akroyd’s original vision. These can be purchased directly from the Royd Audio shop.

I’m afraid we do not have any spares for Royd speakers here at Spare parts can be tough to find, especially for rare models. Keep a lookout on eBay and forums, occasionally spares or other damaged speakers that could donate spares appear.

  1. Hello Rich

    Thank you for taking the time to post a reply, I have been trawling various classifieds for some time now and as yet not found a pair that are either in suitable condition or not to over priced ( I know they are quite rare but some of the prices that have been asked recently on ebay do seem a little over imaginative to me : ). Will definitely have a look on some of the sites that you have sent, thanks again for that. I have the rest of my system in place an A&R A60 amplifier and T21 matching tuner and an Ariston RD 80 tuner . Can’t wait to here my first vinyl.

    Best Regards

    1. Thanks for the site. I have a pair of Royd Minstrels, but they are missing the round badge at the bottom.
      Could you send me a picture of what the badge looked like so I can obtain a replacement?
