The Minstrel offers not only exceptional musicality, detailed mid range and clarity of tone but also the ability to produce the right note at the right time in the right way. This room friendly, veneered pair of loudspeakers is available for a limited period of time and at a very competitive price.The first thing you notice about these speakers, is just how small they are and how little they weigh. As soon as you connect them up and power on you know they are something special. The treble is handles perfect. They bounce along with such enthusiasm that you cant help but smile at them while you listen. Apart from the full and `juicy bass that seems to come from below you, the other fantastic quality they have is their imaging and sense of space around them.
No other speaker I have tried has matched them for this, they really do throw the sound around which all adds to their charm. I have owned many pairs of Royd Minstrel in the past and one thing I can tell you is that people are clicking on to just how good these speakers are, and prices are rising fast.
ROYD is not a big name, but with these speakers you get a very big sound. Please feel free to jump on any forum and ask about these speakers, or read some reviews on them and you will see nothing but love. NAIM owners know all about these speakers and the incredible bounce and sound they put out. I have been running these speakers with my Sansui 990 which is an absolute monster of a receiver and these little beauties handle it with ease. There is just such a refined sound to them.
I get a lot of enquiries asking if I will sell the drivers separately, the answer is no. The speakers are too nice to part and each pair was hand made so splitting them up would be a real shame. As for the condition of these, They are a solid 9.5 / 10.
They retain their original plinths and spikes too, The covers are in perfect condition - No tears or rips, and there is no gumming on any of the drivers - All move freely and sound fantastic. They are a sure investment and a quick route to being very satisfied with your music. Please just spend 10 minutes reading up about these online.. You may not realise what you have been missing out on.
