I just got a Delonghi EC 155.  I went ahead and took out the pressurized piece of the portafilter, but doing this means that the bottom part of the filter comes out when you knock out the puck, which can get rather tedious.  I've read that you can use a Delonghi basket #607706.  The only problem is that no one has any in stock.  Does anyone know of a similarly priced alternative?  Otherwise I suppose I can just wait for everyone to get them back in stock.

I just bought the basket #607706 from the De'Longhi parts distributor - http://www.encompassparts.com/brands/dei/Delonghi. Came in within ~10 days or less, and it's cheaper than anywhere else.

The problem is that it doesn't fit into the portafilter basket. You'll have to file down the screw socket on the inside for sure, and maybe take the whole bottom off. Also, on my EC155 (purchased Dec '13), it isn't clear if the basket will fit even after modding, since the #607706 basket doesn't seem to fit over the grouphead.

I thought about ordering the La Pavoni Millenium 51mm basket, as suggested in some of the posts below. It's $25 at http://www.espressoparts.com/MP68 (will update ). Supposedly it will fit if you flatten down the lip on the basket - it's nice that this one doesn't require cutting up your EC155 portafilter. Lots of good info at http://www.kennethballard.com/?p=463

I also looked at ordering a Krups part since it was much cheaper. Waiting to hear back from the seller if it's pressurized or not..... Click Here (www.marbeck.com)

On a sidenote, I think my 49mm tamper is a bit small: Click Here (www.amazon.com) Others suggested Click Here (www.amazon.com)

Some bits of useful knowledge relating to modifying the EC155 in the comments at Click Here (protofusion.org)

Just a heads up but I just recieved the Krups Espresso 880 887 Replacement 2-Cup Filter Basket MS-0907163 because it is the same size of basket in my Cuisinart. But it IS a pressurized basket.

So now I might be ordering the one from La Pavoni next. I just wish there was a cheaper solution.

Here's some info from today on my experience with the 607706 basket in one of the main/oldest EC155 mod threads: http://coffeegeek.com/forums/espresso/machines/658292#658292
