A friend of mine had his Hemors modified (relatively expensive but he had some kind of "insurance" that covered most of the cost). Prior to the mod they sounded too "hot"...the kind of sound that'd make your ears "bleed". It's taken awhile to get them broken in, but with some time and patience, they now sound very "relaxed" and soothing. You can listen for hours w/o any hint of flair-up.
I am trying to be a little serious and in the end was just dense. What else is new? LOL
Seriously, South43 thanks for the number. I called and they reccommended the Totem Mite-t and Mite-c-t to match. Totem uses the exact same tweeter as the Royds. What does everyone thenk about Totem Acoustics? Looking for information.
I did call Royd Loudspeakers and Jo Ackroyd answered the phone (I didn't know it at the time). He was very helpful and actually suggested Rega, because you want the British sound, you know. The one thing he did say was that the rear channel speakers should not have over-emphasized bass as it would cause a bad interaction with the Doublets. I am still planning to listen to the Totems and the Rega's, when I get a chance.
I have heard the Totem Staff speakers in a fairly nice setup. Very small, discrete and classy looking, especally in light of the fact that they are a floor standing speaker. Sound was very nice to my ears. Could be more speaker than a rear channel deserves but I seem to remember them as being reasonably priced...especially on the used market. Well worth checking out.
