Ryan, I can't answer any of your questions, but that won't stop me from throwing in my own 2¢ . . . ;^)
I have an Elektra "Sixties" T1 HX machine. I have had zero desire to upgrade over the past 3+ years that I've owned this machine. But that doesn't stop me from lusting after a 2-group Mirage Idracomprosso from Kees van der Westen . . . or maybe a BOSCO. Doubt I'll ever get one mind you, but the "allure" of a commercial level is . . . shall we say, "enduring."
