I'm not sure I would call the drivers "dry" sounding. Crystaline, maybe. Ty uses other high quality parts in addition to the drivers. As with any speaker worth its salt - Tylers will clearly reveal the signal that is being sent to them. If your upstream components have - shall i say - issues, you will surely hear, every issue, with the Tyler Linbrooks. (same speakers as Newbee) But In my mind, that is what a speaker is supposed to do - reveal the music being sent to them.
I have a mix of SS and tubes, which I think is a pretty interesting mix: cdp - TRL SA-14, preamp - First Sound Presence Deluxe MkII, amp - Krell FPB400cx, to the Tylers.
The TRL is always compared, by others, as good analogue. FS is tubes with attitude. :-) The krell is FAST, clean, and revealing, with the power to handle ANY driver - easily.
I sit in front of my Linbrooks , amazed, at the sound that comes from them. I just love 'em.
