You're right.  The thread compares the two specific models but jmanespresso's comments are more general in comparing Macap to Mazzer:

If the OP can compare both first hand that's ideal.  Grinders aren't one-size-fits-all and preference certainly plays a part in selecting one.

A lot longer than a Rocky?  Yikes.  Doesn't sound right to me.  From Googling, the MXA appears to be comparable to the SJ.  The SJ is a lot faster than the Rocky.

Well, I have lend the Macap to a friend, who also lend me his Baratza Preciso to test it out (since I was curious on the Vario, and that was the closest comparison I have without dropping 7 big ones)  His first comment to me was that my Macap was very noisy and slow when grinding... he checked my burrs and told me the inner side of the burrs were pretty blunt, and would explain the results I was getting and how slow it takes to grind my single dose...

Order the replacement burrs so hopefully the new burrs would give better result... but with the current blunt ones, it is still giving me a good result, but I noted 2-3 notches on the stepless wheel moved will give me either a gusher shot or a choker....

The SJ should be arriving on Monday ( hopefully ) so maybe I can do a newbie comparison then? :D

I wasn't trying to be a smart ass
I was just trying to imply that I personally say that one is better then the other
just like in 22 years of leaving in Oregon I hear people comparing the
Chevy and Ford

Pretty sure Cal was just being humorous- I got a chuckle out of it :)
