Could you please elaborate on that?
Going by my own SR-Lambda vs. SR-202 experiences, not all Lambdas sound alike, even if there are overall similarities to the sound presentation (like soundstage).
Yes some elaboration of this Lambda coloration would be quite useful. I am evaluating a Lambda Pro right now, and I have to say that it's a very enjoyable headphone that doesn't seem take a back seat to my more expensive dynamics. It's my first electrostatic experience, so far so good but I wonder about moving on to other models. I would like to try an SR-007 MK1, an SR-Omega, and if I ever find a deal on an old HE Audio Jade I'm in.
But I really have no idea what the other Stax models are like, only that the Lambda Pro is a bit different that the typical Stax signature. For the $325 I spent ($375 including a new set of pads), I am quite pleased so far, listening out of a WEE. When considering higher Stax models I can't help but wonder about the SR-009, but it's literally 15x the cost
