I have again "decloaked" myself to offer up what I know about the E-61 machine that has been re-introduced by Cimbali/Faema.
Presently plans for the E-61 single group are limited to 220 volt.
For many enthusiasts, this is a tall order as most wives will assuredly balk at opening walls to run a 220 line from the box.
We are encouraging the engineers to release a 110 volt unit for the USA to compete directly in the HB market.
This may be considered to compete with the GS3 only on looks alone (alas the GS3 is somewhat of an ugly ducking).
On a technocal note I can say that with the exceptions of the restrictions that UL and ETL place on machines entering the American market, the E-61 is an exact replica of its notable ancestor.
All things considered, it will probably (since the E-61 group is quite primitive by todays Cimbali/Faema standards) look better than it will pull shots.
For those interested in a revolution in shot extraction.......bide your time......Cimbali is planning away as we speak.
