There is a water tank carrier and if a very small amount of water is spilt I can't see it causing a problem as it would drip over the rear of the carrier and miss the electronics (Gicar Box).  

A large amount of water might well be a problem, as it could on many machines. Always remember, when filling ANY machine....it should be switched off at the mains, if you spill loads of water inside the machine, then always allow it to dry off first.

Hope it helps....it was nothing I had a problem with.

Thanks Dave.

Taking some care is always the first/best thing to do.
I was planning on using a funnel anyway when filling rather than aiming into the fill hole with a bottle.
It'll be interesting trying to get used to an internal tank again.
I use an external 10l plastic jerry for my Rancilio S27.

However - it'll likely be moot if I can convince the wife to let me plumb it in :)

I think normal cabinets, from the pic you can see a trim piece that I think it there to hid the recessed lighting underneath the cabinets.  The S1V1 barely fits.

Wife says the clearance is 16 inches and some.  SOME!!   The fact sheet says 41CM, which is 16.14.  I am thinking that .14 is probably defined as SOME!  Back in the hunt, and even thought she said no to pure SS machine ( we have owned the S1V1 for 9 years), she now really likes the new 2B.  Wonder if some of the legs on the bottom are adjustable??

Does your Vivaldi have the plastic cup surround on, if yes, then the QM Vetrano DB should fit. The legs are adjustable, but only to make it taller one side or the other, I measured it's height as 410mm with the legs fully in. You would need felt pads on the feet (wooden floor protectors for furniture type) to allow you to slide it in and out easily for filling.

I don't suppose there is any news about the publication of your review,  Dave?

I had thought, from their post, that the Chris' Coffee video was going to be put up two weeks ago but it wasn't.

I wish we could get more information as the Vivaldis are in stock now and though I am leaning towards the Vetrano 2B,  I would still like to know more about it.

This is a huge purchase for us and I would feel more confident if I knew more.

Just been busy and was hoping for Photos of the UK spec modifications before they were delivered. I really should send it to them on Monday. However, they may well not publish until they have the new machines in a weeks or so?

You said the review is 24 pages?! Can't wait!!! :)

Would you be able to tell us what are the differences for the one carried by CCS? In the interest of your time, perhaps only list the differences that would affect performance? I'd never skip a machine simply because of appearance.

I don't really know what they are and wouldn't like to speculate.

Hi Dave (or anyone else who's physically seen this machine), I have a question about the casing:  Are the back and sides one sort of U-shaped piece or are they individual panels?
Thanks!

Dave,
Did you find any body/frame flexing ?
Rockets, ECM, Expobar and others weld/attach panels to a square metal frame which increases strength, is that what the 2B uses ?

Thanks
