Not really relevant to your upgrade discussion but the Silvia's certainly capable of microfoam.  If you're having problems it's your ability and/or a problem with your specific machine..

That is an incomplete statement. It could also be the quality of the milk you are using.

I saw a video where a shop was "practicing" with water and dish soap.  Then they showed a person who has never made microfoam or latte art do it almost well the first time.  Looked so simple.  I've had much trouble with the Silvia using all kinds of milk.  Whole, skim, unpasturized, etc....  Never tried with another machine but I seem to always make it way to foamy or too thin.  Only once was I just right and that was with skim milk.
