I will be upgrading from my current espresso machine to a higher quality one. I was originally considering either the La Spaziale S1 Vivaldi II or the Vibiemme domobar super (electronic). I do however have a contact locally that can offer me other options for a discounted price (but don't know yet by how much). The machines he is suggesting are the Nuova Simonelli Musica, and the ECM Mechanika IV.

My question is: what do you think of these two machines when compared to the S1 and the VBM super? Are they worth considering?

Thank you for your help.

Cheers

Personally I would get the Musica...but only the version that has the white "disco" lights because that machine is beyond sickening!  But then again I am flamboyant and I love anything that's a bit loud and showy. Just my 2 cents.

Whatever your choice, as a general rule you should always privilege seller's trustworthiness, local is better in case you need service.
You just have to decide if seller is trustworthy, after that machines speack for themselves, they all make great coffee (if you have good MANO) and really it comes down to personal taste, NS and ECM mechanically are no lesser than S1 and VBM.
Ciao, Pietro

Thanks for that Cappuccinoboy! I've known the local reseller for the last 12 years, if not more. He used the "favor local suppliers" as well. I would definitely prefer to buy through him but just wanted to cross-check info on those machines from an objective and quite impressive coffee community that is CG.

Additional comments are welcomed as well!

Cheers
