Subject: "New" Silvia teardown
Other than the plastic cover on the newly shaped brewhead,
the new holes in the drip tray,
and a sticker on the outside saying 'Pod Adaptable',

. . . there is nothing new at all.

The new OPV was already being incorporated in the "old look" machines.

There is no "thermowell".

Stick with success!

My source for Silvias even called Rancilio-USA in complete disbelief at
the price, and was told "uh, that's the price" .

I heard second hand that the pod adapter kit will cost about double
what it is for other machine setups. Given what it contains, I'm
surprised it's even more expensive (by about $20) than the Ascaso "pod
adapter kit", which includes a new PF (the Rancilio kit doesn't).

If this is the case, I don't think they're going to be selling many of
them.

Perhaps, that's the point.

Also the "pod" adapter kit for Silvia will cost far more than any other
pod conversion deal

about $70 to 80 -- or more.

another good reason to avoid the pod.
