by Mariusz000

Excellent speakers and very rare- at the time of writing only 2 sets available for sale. ! in singapore for 4500gbp and mine.

£1,500.00

They are 24 years old and are in exceptionally great condition for the age, very few minature scuffs. They need a bit to warmup, once they do they play very nicely airy livelyy music accurately. There is some more information about them form other website: Description : 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. It’s also possible to use the Sorcerers in the near field, placing the speakers along the base of an imaginary isosceles triangle. This dramatically improves the imagery, but to get balanced bass weight, the speakers need to be about three feet from your ears, which is hardly practical in most listening-rooms. In fact, the only criticism regards the Sorcerer’s inability play music at very high volume levels. Yes, they’ll play loud, but if you want those moments of head-banging, you may have to look elsewhere.
