What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Royd Prior loudspeakers

In The Prior, flagship model, Royd have created a loudspeaker which not only builds on the famous speed and transparency of the Royd 7 litre range, but also has the ability to play even the deepest bass lines with power and grace.
Previous to The Prior the large cabinets required for full bass reproduction imposed their own signature upon the music, coloyring the sound and destroying the illusion of live performers playing in time and in tune with one another. Reserch here at Royd has led to the virtual elimination of this problem.
The cabinet of The Prior is extensively mass damped, resistively braced and features our new base plate which comprises both steel and filled polyuretheane elastomer. Not only does this spiked foot provide a stable platform for The Prior but it also acts as a "mechanical earth", absorbing cabinet resonances.
Finished in a high quality black ash or walnut veneer, the sloping front panel is not only elegant but also serves to time align the advanced drive units, so enabling The Prior to create a soundstage which  is both wide and deep.

While equally at home with analogue or digital sources The Prior is ruthlessly revealing of faults in partnering equipment and demands the very best in order that its true potential may be realised. In such company this innovative loudspeaker from Royd sets new standards for those who are serious about reproducing music in their homes.
