Further photos of the upcoming reborn Royd’s have been released. Check them out, it’s looking very nice indeed. Obviously the cabinet is heavily based on the Minstrel, but quite distinctively it’s featuring a ribbon tweeter. I can’t wait to listen to them.

Royd Audio RebornIn a shock announcement it seems that Royd Audio has been reborn and is back from the dead. The brand has been purchased by an industrial designer named Adam Norbury, based near Oxford in the UK, with a view to producing new loudspeakers sympathetic to Joe Akroyd’s original vision. In the coming weeks they will release their designs, which should be familiar to all Roydies.

The new company has announced they will consider selling first to existing Royd speakers owners who wish to trade in their old speakers.

Exciting time are ahead.

I’ve tweaked the site slightly to handle the stats of different versions of the same model. Now you’ll find different stats for each version of a speaker model, which tidies things up and helps to prevent misleading information. See the A7, Sintra and Sapphire for examples.

I’ve added a new Reviews section, where you can find reproductions of reviews of various Royd models from many old publications. As with any hi-fi review, one should bear in mind these will be the opinion of the review and shouldn’t be taken as gospel truth. That said, they do give you an idea of how they compared to other kit at the time, the retails prices back in the day and generally how well regarded they were.

If anyone has any other reviews they’d like to contribute, please get in touch and I’ll reproduce them here on the site.

Mike Hanson, the web developer behind the original Royd Audio website has been kind enough to let me use the the domain name for this website. As you may or not know, the original website had been down for sometime, however Mike has agreed to let this new site take its place. I must iterate though, that although was originally the official company website, this is no longer the case, this site is now a fan site run by and for enthusiasts of Royd Audio speakers. That said Mike will be stopping by here as an editor acting in a limited capacity as commitments permit.

If anyone is interested in visiting the old site, a copy can be found here:-
