I am on the waiting list for the ned instalment of the V2B from CCS.  All of this has got me feeling a bit nervous in purchasing this unit.  

Has anyone heard back from CCS yet concerning this issue?

Posted November 1, 2013 link

I emailed them a couple of weeks ago and was told it was probably air in the lines and that they would be contacting Quick Mill about it.  I haven't heard anything else.

I am hoping that since they now have a recording of the sound, we will get a quick response.

I researched machines for about three months and am not feeling too comfortable with my choice right now.  I do wish we would hear something back from CCS.  I am getting a little hesitant to lift the lever because of the GRR
noise.  I know that is silly but it does bother me when I don't think it should be making that noise.

If anyone hears anything from CCS, please post it so we can all read it.

Thanks!

I leave my machine on days at a time. The longer it sets without being used, the worse the noise is. If I use it a few times a day. it does not make the strange noise. Once I left it on for more than two days without using it and when the pump came on to fill the steam boiler, it did not fill with water and the pump did not shut off...until I raised the handle on the group.

With ANY machine, I would recommend running it even for 10 seconds a once or twice during the day. Leaving it on for days without running the pump.....probably not a great idea.

Yes I understand your situation... I would be feeling the same thing.  

In terms of other units in this price range the only other one that comes to mind is the Duetto III.  If not that one then a GS3 but that adds another 2500 to the price.  I guess I will wait and see what happens here before I make any rash decisions.  I'm wishing I never sold my GS3 now.

Can somebody explain how a thread that was a simple announcement of a new machine from Quick Mill in March turned into a 138 page megathread? I've been wondering this for months.

It has really covered a lot of ground.

Marx Brothers from Duck Soup had a line saying: Say you cover a lot of ground. You better leave.  I hear that they are going to tear you down and put up an office building where you are standing.  This was said to Margaret Dumont who responded with her usual look of what the hell do I say now.  I realize this has nothing to do with the thread but when I thought about it covering a lot of ground it reminded me of the line from the movie.

We have covered a lot of subjects on the machine and now are to the GRR sound problem and what is causing it.

Stay tuned for more!

I know you started this thread, and untimely went with the Vivaldi. Based on how closely you are monitoring this thread I think deep down you are wondering if you should have gone with the V2B. This is just based on the quoted post and the one where you made the comment about how annoying the sound must be. You seem to show up now when something negative is said. Maybe you do it to justify your purchase, or reassurance. In any case, there is nothing wrong with the vialdi.

I only heard the sound a few times, including once when I was messing with the lever positions and it hasn't made the noise in weeks. More importantly, it has no impact of the quality of espresso. There are other options out there, but there are too many improvement found in the V2B that similar priced, or even slightly higher priced machines lack. The more I use the V2B the happier I am with it. I don't feel there is a better machine on the market right now in it's price range.

If you would have read the quote I was responding to you would know why I responded with my comment. Ask clive coffee or chris which machine he thinks is better..
Why would you call my decision "untimely"? You have no idea how long I took to make my decision.. I also see comments here about people possibly returning their machine. I dont need to justify my purchase, but it seems you do!

I am sure the GS3 is more machine than the V2B... so from that perspective, I wouldn't compare the two machines. With that said, I consider this noise to be a small deal..., similar to buying a new car that has a rattle. If I never get it fixed I will still enjoy my machine. But I think this will turn out to be an easy fix as soon as someone takes the time to figure out what is causing it. In the mean time, I am enjoying the machine and the shots it produces. If the V2B is in your budget range and the GS3 is not, then I would still consider it a smart purchase. In my case, if I were to use my machine more often, the noise would not even occur. Even when I have the two seconds of noise, it is still much quieter than a vibe machine. I think the biggest reason most of us buy a rotary machine is to get the quiet pump... so it is natural that everyone would notice an extra noise they were not expecting.
