Bottom Line: You are probably reading this looking for an upgrade.  For the money, the Vetrano 2B has been an excellent choice.  Chris coffee has also been great to work with.
Positive Product Points

Great looks.  Fantastic pulls out of the box.  Very consistent shots.  Flexible machine with 15 or 20 amp and reservoir or plumbed in as well as optional drain.  Lights are great with company coming over but has a switch.  PID is easily adjustable on the front panel, which is great as shots can be adjusts with a couple of buttons.  Reservoir is large.

Negative Product Points

4 hole steam head in the 15 amp mode is not great.  Looses pressure as brew head gets the attention.  Ordered the 2 hole and have not looked back even in the 15amp mode.  Plenty of pressure.

Detailed Commentary

Chosen after exhaustive reviews of the Rocket and the Duetto 3.0.  The Duetto is a much closer comparison whereas the Rocket does not really compare.  I chose the 2B based on:
The PID ease of use location and adjustment, you don't need to plug in a wand.
Amp adjustment flexibility.  I may never upgrade to the 20 AMP.
Plumbing in or reservoir.  Using with the reservoir until I get it plumbed in.  
Quiet pump that has the motor on top.  The machine is very quiet.  
I have enjoyed improving my game with the 2B

Buying Experience

Seeking the best coffee house for cappuccino's in each city I visit.  Wanted to bring it home as Starbucks just does not do it for me.  We mostly used French press at home.
