  1. Hi do you still have the C5i? Sorry ignore me I'm an idiot I just read your last post!
  2. I notice this was posted a while back but wondered if this has this gone?
  3. It allows for close boundary placement. We've found it also helps tune the speakers to the room, facing them in or out helps reduce "room boom".
  4. Available for sale are two pairs of Royd Troubadour loudspeakers. These both come with the MkII crossovers. BLACK - £750 [ex-demo] SOLID MAPLE - £850 [cancelled special order] Please email wigwam@roydaudio.co.uk for more information.
  5. Just a gentle reminder that Clerkenwell Design Week kicks off tomorrow. If you are in town please feel free to pop in to our pop up demo!
  6. Lovely, thanks for all the replies. I've chatted to Peter at Deco before so I'll start there and work my way out. Many thanks everyone for pitching in to the thread.
  7. Thanks, great suggestions. Seems they have moved up to Lincolnshire?
  8. The upcoming launch of our new Atom stand mount speaker has generated quite a bit of interest and despite an industry move to direct sales there is still a need to listen to Hi Fi kit. Our approach to this problem was by releasing demo speakers to be passed around by various forum members so they could listen in their own space. However many have still asked if we intend to offer our speakers through a dealer network. With this in mind we are starting to research several options starting locally at first in the South East because we are based in Oxfordshire. It is important that the dealers we consider are ones you respect. If you can spare a moment to pop down a dealer that you use either regularly or occasionally that has impressed you we would be really grateful.
  9. Introducing the new Royd Atom loudspeaker We're really pleased to announce this new addition to our line up which builds on the success of the Troubadour. Those who are interested in listening to the latest Royd loudspeaker can hear it during Clerkenwell Design Week. We're sharing a small workshop space within the Craft Central building near Farringdon station. Details of the event can be found here We'll be demoing between the: 24th and 25th May from 4pm - 7pm Location can be found here Thank you and hope to see you there!
  10. Demo pair are currently doing the rounds near Sheffield. Anyone local or within an hour let me know if you are interested in having them next.
  11. I've opened a thread and the offer of a demo pair here on the Wam for anyone interested.
  12. After posting a thread on PFM a few people have asked if I could do the same here so here it is. I'm putting aside a pair of Royd Troubadour speakers in black for members of the Wam to listen to and pass onto other fellow members. Hopefully this should increase exposure and allow people to listen with their own equipment in their own room. Maybe even tempt one or two to part with some cash LINK TO DEMO LIST Google Docs list RULES: I'd suggest a first come first served basis, so they are passed to the next person posting on the thread but happy to let members sort the order out perhaps geographically? Please also include in the thread your equipment and room size as this is useful for all members. The person passing them on is responsible for insured postage or hand delivery. Make sure the packaging is still fit for purpose and the return address label is still visible should the package be undelivered. Auditions should ideally take a week but no longer than two. Prior to posting on to the next person please record [with photos] the condition of the speakers. WHEN ASKING TO DEMO: Once you post your interest on the thread please email me your contact details, Wigwam handle and phone number to demo@roydaudio.co.uk so I can keep track and add you to the demo list. POSTAGE Postage costs vary, the best one I've found is through a third party like Parcel Monkey using Parcel Force 48hr and it comes in at around £25 others using UPS weigh in at £45. Please insure them up to the value of £600 - this is not the complete price of a set but I'm making the assumption that should the worst happen they will be repairable - the reduced insurance cost will also help to keep shipping costs down. If you want to do your own search then the package is: 72cm x 50cm x 30cm 17Kg
  13. These speakers were a labour of love and a high watermark in my product design. They have been featured on various online blogs and without exception everyone who has seen them in the flesh has been captivated by their unique look. It was a project that culminated in over a year of research and prototyping ending in commissioning a highly respected cabinet maker and upholsterer to realise the design. These speakers would appeal to anyone interested in full range / wide band drivers, that is a design without crossover where a single driver handles all the information from the amplifier. I can also supply a pair of BSC circuits that can be plugged into the terminals but I used them without. They use a version of the highly regarded JX92 full range driver, developed and refined by British audio engineer Ted Jordan over his 40 year career. They employ a dual chamber bass reflex design, used to extract a great deal of tuneful bass from the single driver which also helps brace the cabinet internally so that it is structurally very stiff. The 18mm MDF carcass is wrapped in 12mm sold American Walnut. The front baffle is completed using Paul Smith syncopated stripe fabric. The rear terminals are CNC'd from solid aluminium with 4mm binding posts. When I say these are unique speakers I am not understating this. When you consider that the fabric alone retails for £150 per linear meter, the enclosure is wrapped in 12mm solid Walnut and the whole thing was built by a cabinet maker you won't be surprised to find these speakers cost in excess of £2000 to bring to life. Why do I want to sell them? Perhaps want isn't the right word, but I am a compulsive tinkerer and there are many projects I would like to do next and sadly I don't have room to keep all of them hence the sale. I would like to recoup some of my original investment so they are priced at £1000 for the pair I am happy to demonstrate them and have a Naim system, you are more than welcome to bring your own to test. Collection preferred as these are heavy, large and delicate. I am between Aylesbury and Oxford so you can collect or I can bring them to you within reason. • Impedence 8 Ohms • Power handling 35 watts ~ 75 watts(Max) • Frequency response 40Hz ~ 20Khz • X-max 8.5mm • Sensitivity 87dB 1W/1m • Dimensions 206mm x 229mm x 910mm
