    So disappointed to hear this. The Verona has been at the top of my wishlist following DavecUK's review. We're doing a lot of work to house & kitchen in the coming months and this machine was planned to feature. I've been getting excited at the prospect of getting my hands on it after lusting after it for so long.
    Back to the drawing board!

    May be another couple of super cheap Vesuvius machines coming up after another upcoming exhibition...so might be worth waiting. They get built for the exhibition, but are effectively dead stock, so they are happy to recover costs (so pretty much factory gate price). Next time though the prices will be higher as I have suggested a donation to the forum for each one sold by ACS.

    Interesting, thanks! The Vesuvius was out of my range so I haven't looked too closely. Will scurry off and do some reading now.

    Whilst after sifting through the market I had narrowed it between Duetto 4 and the Verona, now faced with the disappointment I have taken a liking to the ECM Synchronika.
    What irks me slightly is after taking the plunge, the latest model arrives with several updates and mods, I agree this could apply to any machine.

    JWL.
    What upgrades did the new Synchronika arrive with out of interest?

    No, I have been asked to review, but at the moment don't want to do all that work....just not interesting enough
