Nice looking machine. The paddle-to-microswitch seems a bit gimmicky, but just an opinion.

IMO, They need to ditch the all stainless trim and go back to the black trim.

In addition to polished stainless steel, it's available in black, red, and white. Here's the press photo of it in black:

Anyone know if it has preinfusion?

The Sprudge 1st look states:
The machine has a familiar paddle switch to engage the group head, which features pre-programmed pre-infusion (one second on, one second off). Temperature can be altered using a click-wheel located on the side.

Maybe it's just me, but for that amount of money I'd like something that at least looks like it cost $4,500+. IMO it looks cheap and a bit clumsy.

I know the brew boiler is fed by h/x from steam boiler, but under 6oz boiler for $4500?!? The stainless looks good, the black and red version have a cheap look to me.
