Yes but most of the internals are pretty standard, and shared by most high end machines. For me what made me go for the Synchronika was the stainless boiler, the rotary pump and the dual boiler. Also the boilers are insulated. The internals are pretty neat as well. You know, if you buy a Mercedes it doesn't automatically mean that it will be trouble free. The Syncjronika is a great machine, the temp measured at the head is pretty consistent and in line with the PID. I really can't fault it, apart from the problem with the steam valve.
