Hi, I'm trying to choose between these two. Other than size and plumb in factors... is there much if a difference?

There is very little difference between them (I am told) except larger steam boiler and case on the Vostok. Vostok is more expensive, but not much.

The one group machines are identical in every way except for their shape/frame and a group area light on the Vostock.

Plumbed or not plumbed options are identical.

Ah. I was mistaken about the steam boiler sizes. Good! I like a large steam boiler.

It can be plumbed in, as can the Evo.

I wonder why there are two models that are so similar?

1 group evo came first, case is smaller and for some people Evo is better as the display and button placement is different. Hence it makes sense to produce the Evo as well.

Other than the caseing and display... do they produce a similar shot?

if you own the Evo, you will be convinced the Evo shot is better, if you own a Vostock, you will believe the Vostok produces the better shot.

Doesn't matter if I say they... logically "have" to produce an identical shot 8)
