Yes. I'm thinking about the Vetrano. However, I really like the styling of the Rocket R58 too. My sense is that the Vetrano may be a little better on the features and performance, but that the Rocket might be a little better build. I also absolutely love my S1 and fear that I might regret even changing machines.

Yes that is a difficult decision to make. I can't speak for the Rocket line but my first unit was a ECM Giotto Premium. I had it for ten years without any issues accept having to replace a P stat. I'm not sure if the same degree of quality is turning out at the Rocket plant. The Rocket line is more money but they do look really nice.
