Default Elinchrom D-Lite RX 400 VS BRX 500 or 250

Hello ! I'm about to add two more strobes to my current setup, i got a D-lite 4 IT ATM...
So now i'm planning to buy the D-Lite RX 400w To_Go_Set, but also looking at the BRX500 set.

So my question is about what are the differences between this two strobes ? beside faster recycle time, better body build ??

I'm guessing that BRX has many programmable features with Skyport remote system.
And I have read somewhere that DLite is for advanced amateur (?) and BRX is for entry professional (?).

I have the old ones
Dlite It and the BXRi

So I dunno if any of that translates to the new ones. Dlite has been fine for me so far.

I bought the Elinchrom D-Lite RX 4, the build quality is not as good as the D-lite 4 IT, but the difference is minimal..the wireless RX function works great

Reviving this thread. I have an application for a new small portrait studio where I could really appreciate the Elinchrom wifi iPhone / iPad app - so the D-Lite RX One, 2 and 4 might be ideal.
Anyone care to report on their experience using them?
Thanks in advance
