WTD: Royd Minstrels

After some Royds, speakers that is, let me know if you have any Minstrels you would let go.

    All the best with your search, Rob. They’re graceful looking speakers aren’t they...?
    I notice a couple of pairs on eBay. Looks like prices have risen slightly since I last looked. Good 2nd hand hifi looks like a good investment these days!
  • Thanks, looks like I've found a set for a rather good price. They do look rather different, but I think that adds to the charm. I doubt the other half will agree tho, but I've dragged worse into the house. In fact I think my worse was a set of mission 761cabinets that I 'modded' with monitor audio gr10 drivers and tweeters and B&W 600 series crossovers.

    A real Frankenstein's monster...! :D How did they sound?
    Can't agree more about the Minstrels. I think they're lovely looking (never owned a pair, though).
    Glad you've found a pair.
  • They sounded incredibly bad  :D
  • I cohabited with a pair of Minstrels for years. They're one of those speakers that have a few downsides that some can't live with, but the upsides are so overwhelming you soon forget there's anything wrong at all.

    Oh, and I replaced them with my current Royd RR3s, which, while I keep thinking I want a pair of floorstanders, I can't see myself ever getting rid of.

    You're starting off on a long and dodgy road, Rob!
  • Well I do know of some RR2's for sale if you feel tempted  ;)
  • I'm not up for the full collection :-)
