Review on the Tyler Acoustics Lynbrook Signature's


This Review Is For The Tyler Acoustics Lynbrook Signature Series 1 Piece System in the Ribbon Mahogany Finish.

After a 200+ hour break-in period I have to say that these are the most Transparent and Revealing Speakers that I have owned or Audition.These speakers sound good from the begining but after the 200+ break-in period they are nothing but Remarkable. They posses a Superb Transient Response and a Distinguished Low Bass Performance that is hard to find in other speakers. Delicate Highs with a Beautiful Midrage Detail and a Wide Soundstage.The Lynbrooks are one of the Most Complete Full Range High End Speakers you can find and at $5500.00 it is a Real bargain because in order to achive this kind of performance you will have to spend at least twice as much for Speakers.The High End "Seas" drivers used on these speakers are the same drivers used in much more expensive speakers as the Joseph Audio Pearl Speakers ( MSRP$20,000) or the Von Schwikert VR-5 (MSRP $25,000). Actually on my list of speakers that I was considering purchasing these two were on it along with the Dali Euphonia MS5, B&W 800D and the Legacy Audio Whispers. I auditioned all of these speakers but still was not as convinced in their sound/performance as and when I purchased the Tyler Lynbrook Signature Series. I am not in any way saying that the before mentioned speakers are not good speakers I am simply saying that I felt that they did not bring out the sound performance that I was looking for in a pair of High End speakers.As far as the Lynbrook Signature Series I just couldn't find anything negative to write about these wonderful speakers.They are so clear and detail that you can hear every instrument being played but with the delicacy that you want to spend hours listening to them.These Speakers Have a Deep,Open and Wide SoundStage. They are without a doubt a very Musical Appealing Speakers.I am spending hours going thru my 300+ CDs,SACDs,HDCDs,XRCD24s collection and it is like listening to them for the first time but with the emphasis,transparency and detail that I have not experience with any other speakers before. I am Very Please that I didn't have to spend twiced as much to get this kind of Sound/Performance and Built Quality. These Speakers are Gorgeous looking Speakers and The Ribbon Mahogany Finish is Beautiful and the Built Quality is Outstanding. My Advice is that if you are looking for a pair of Full Range High End Speakers Give these Speakers a try. You have 20 days to Audition them and if you are not satisfy you can return them to get you money back. I honestly doubt that you will return these Remarkable speakers because it will very hard to find this kind of performance and built quality at this price.
I will appreciate sharing your commnents or experiences with these speakers or any other Tyler Acoustic Speakers.
Hope this review is helpfull to others.

My Best Regards to All.

Good review. I agree with the comments on the Linbrook System (I own it as well). The 200 hours seems crazy, but I experienced the same thing... go figure. The speakers you auditioned were also on my list, except I auditioned the VR4SR and DB99 as opposed to the VR7s... I guess we pretty much were thinking alike. :-)

Happy listening,

Glad you like your new Tylers. I also have them and have grown quite fond of them as well. Love'm with tubes!

FWIW, for those who may be considering the Tylers, I would point out that my break in experience with them was somewhat different that yours. Out of the box (less than 100 hours) I found the upper-mid range/highs very uneven and ragged. In fact I thought the speakers were going back to Tyler! I noticed after four or five days of continual running that the mid's and highs really smoothed out and now I consider this part of their sonic spectrum outstanding! I think another A'gonner articulated a similar experience in a Tyler post as well so new purchasers should be aware.

Enjoy your speakers. Unless you are really anal or you move to different quarters they should be your last. :-)
Thanks so much Drseid & Newbee for sharing your experiences about the Lynbrooks Signature Series. I also had the same experience with the upper-mid range. They did sound uneven and a bit dull but after the first 100 hours of break-in I started noticing a huge improvement. I decided to give it another 100 more hours before writing a review about them. These Speakers are here to stay for a long time since I feel that I have finally found the Sound and Performance that I have been looking for in a Truly High End Pair of Full Range Speakers.

Carlos, I just looked at your photos. Do you have any flexibility regarding speaker placement etc. I suspect you could enhance the sound of your Tylers substantialy if you do. Post here, or send me an email if you are interested at all in my experiences in this regard and my observations regarding your present set up.
Hi Newbee,
Thanks for the advice on the placement of the Speakers. Actually I only had them place like that while the break-in period was taking place. Righ now they are around 10 inches away from the back wall, toed in and 10 feet apart. My Room is 14 feet wide by 20 feet long with an 8 foot ceiling. I tried different placements but I found out that the way they are right now gives me the best soundstage.Thanks so much for the tip. By the way how do you have yours set up?
Regards,
Carlos.
