I have two systems with Tylers in each, can't give you the exact comparision you are looking for, but for what it is worth - in one I have the Linbrook System 2s , the other Taylo 7Us. The System 2s are driven by either of 2 integrateds a Plinius 8200 175 wpc SS, or Soundquest SQ 88 52wpc tube, and Audio Analogue Paganini CD. The Taylo 7Us are driven by a Portal Panche 100wpc SS, and an Arcam CD72 Cd and a Lite Audio modded DAC AM. I find both speakers to be very musical and easy to listen to for long periods. The System 2s don't seem to be partial to SS or tube, sound very nice with both. I've had the System 2s somewhat longer than the Taylos. The 2s are 3 way, the Taylos 2 way - both offer a little different presentation but not drastic differences to my ears - guess I'd consider the 2s slighty warmer,but neither to me are bright. The Taylos might have a little wider soundstage, but again to my ears marginally so. I bought both through Ty's customer trade-up (used) program without the ability to demo and frankly thoroughly enjoy both. Had origially looked at replacing my Paradigm Studio 60s and PSB Image 6Ts with B&Ws until I auditioned a few models in the same relative price range and was left unimpressed. Sure that I didn't give you want you wanted to know,but what I am saying is I don't think you can go wrong with either of Ty's models, and if you call him he'll give you the insights you want - he's a pleasure to deal with.
