Obviously 12fretters and 14fretters are different animals, so let us assume we are comparing similar guitars (not including the early wood bodied Triolians in this comparison).
The neck wood is the main issue: mahogany absorbs more vibration than maple does. Maple is HARD compared to mahogany.
As a result of the maple neck, the Triolian has a "harder" brighter and sometimes less forgiving sound than the somewhat "mushier" Duolians.
I think Triolians make a better standard tuning guitar (less chaotic overtones/reverb) and Duolians fare slightly better for slide, even though the Triolians I've had sustained better than Duolians. The Duolians had the fatter bass, the Triolians had the better defined highs.

And the paint of course.
