No idea. But back in the day, I was an early adopter of Win7 - and it sucked in audio compared to the XP big time. It took 7 some year, maybe even 2, to match what the XP could sound.  I have read that 10 is about the best thing for audio for windows since sliced bread - but in things computer and music, I prefer to keep it conservative. It would take one hell of persuasions for me to even consider 10.
It all depends on RC time constants.  SB (self biasing ) transformers contain LOTS of batteries in series ( till you get to that 580 V for Pro models - do the math...) - and therefore their bias supply is the most stable of them all - veeeeeeeery slowly this voltage is dropping due more to the self-discharge of batteries than anything else - even real world capacitors like headphone electrostatic drivers, have next to infinity resistance and therefore next to no drain. RC...
There will be no tips sold specifically for the Stax on ebay - or else. The candidates are LARGE tips with large bore that are veeery streeeetchy and do not burst at attempting to place them on the oval nozzle os baby Stax. That rules out anything that has "strenghtening member" around the nozzle - and even then, the material must be soft and very stretchy. My tips were dirt cheap, bought because of large bore needed for other normal dynamic IEMs, and I figured how to...
Check ebay. I did get  the ones that can be fitted, seal well and are COMFORTABLE. They eventually sold out, if I fond them again, I will let you know. IIRC, I did post the link quite some time ago here - but could be mistaken ?
Adele is perhaps the worst sounding of any mainstream recording artist - on recordings available, that is. Hope live shows are better sounding.
It's still the man - and not the machine. The technology got so advanced it allows for abusing the natural sound beyond recognition - and loudness wars make ever more absurd demands on the mastering engineers. It takes one holla lotta cojones to stand up against such demands by the producers, even artist themselves sometimes. With the proliferation of the equipment say 1/5th the quality of the likes of Mojo + decenr headphones en mase, it will gradually change the general...
Adele is perhaps the sterling example how truly rotten mastering can go trough these days. On one of her CDs, the clipping was soooo bad my friend took it immediately back to the shop - to be horrified yet one more time, as the seller told him he was the only one to complain... 
Any electrostatic needs high voltage at the driver.  That means - on all three locations mentioned. Stax has been marketing electrostatic IEM for over a decade without any known safety problems.
I agree Lambdas in general tend to be a bit cold and that SRM-006t can bring some warmth.
Oh, well... - you should connect the SR-207 to some serious amp. What you say/claim is true - but it can not play nearly as well as it is capable from an underpowered amp...
