VINTAGE ROYD AUDIO " THE SORCERER " BOOKSHELF SPEAKERS. INCREDIBLE CONDITION / FULLY INSPECTED BY TECHNICIAN 17/04/2020. For sale we have a gorgeous pair of the incredibly rare Royd " The Sorcerer " Bookshelf Speakers.I imagine if you are looking at this advert - you already know what these are, and how hard they are to find - Even amongst Royd Enthusiasts. The Sorcerer is a very musical high quality stand-mounted loudspeaker.
It may also be considered one of the best bookshelf speakers around the world for its size. They are very solid and heavy pair of speakers. Joe Akroyd, who fronts Royd and whose ideas are behind these loudspeakers, has devoted a considerable amount of time and energy to the removal of all the sources of coloration which he feels has marred many previous small box loudspeakers.
The appearance too is impressive: accurately halved and beautifully finished walnut veneer on four sides plus the baffle which is recessed in a solid walnut quadrant frame into which the black cloth covered grille frame sits. The Sorcerers are considerably dynamic speakers. Once they settle in, the bass fills out and they sound more musical and alive.
They are designed to work close to a rear wall, so holographic sound- staging and image depth are not priorities. Instead, you're blessed with a vivid, up-tempo performance that never sounds small. Though best suited to average-sized rooms, the Sorcerers have enough energy to fill out larger rooms at a pinch. They have a slightly rich, warm tonal balance, coupled with a slight zing to the upper frequencies. The Sorcerers are consummately musical, underpinning any hi-fi niceties with a wicked sense of rhythm.These speakers cost a hefty 600GBP in 1995. Those are 24 years old, very rare, are all original and in excellent condition. The Royd Audio range are famed for their paring with NVA amps and Naim. I have had these hooked up to my Sansui AU-888 and they sound magical.
Full of bounce, energy, clarity and refinement. They are a sumptuous pair of speakers and the next owner will be massively impressed by them.The item "Vintage Royd Sorcerer Stereo Bookshelf Speakers / Rare HIFI / Royd Audio / NAIM" is in sale since Sunday, May 3, 2020.
