I am punching out about 15 shots a day on the Gaggia.  Got it tuned
and the coffee is good.
My son is in Med School and came home today.  He ask the Wife and I
how much a machine like this cost.
I look at the wife, she looks at me and says UPGRADE!!
So, Giotto Professional is in my future unless you guys tell me to buy
something else.  ALSO, I will need a new grinder,  What should I get
here, another Rocky?
Thanks!!!

Hi Hank,
Upgrade!!!  I've got the older version of the Giotto, with the wide fenders and use a Rocky as well.  I'm still learning it a lot.  Only have had it for 10 months, but it is truly a great and fun machine.

I'll second the recommendation that Terry made Re: Vario.  For the difference
in price there is no comparison between it and a Rocky.

Hi Terry,
You don't need 220 V, just 20 A (120 V) for your Vivaldi II.  I've
just had the circuit upgraded in my kitchen and it is nice to not have
to wait for the steam boiler -- it seems like it is always ready now.

"You don't need 220 V, just 20 A (120 V) for your Vivaldi II."
True enough, but for 120v 20a, the breaker in the service panel will have to
 be replaced, heavier 12gauge Cu wire will have to be run, (maybe 21-2 w/gnd
Romex) and the 120v, 20a receptacle will have to be substituted for your
current receptacle.
If you get a duplex 20a outlet, it will be a waste because nothing else can
be running while the Viv II is brewing and steaming. Simultaneous B&S would
seem to be the reason for flipping the simultaneous steam lock-out. You
would then have to prevent simultaneous use of the 20a duplex outlet- NO
gain for the expense.
240v @ 10a would be more "sanitary" electrically, because the Neutral leg is
idle. Just 10a on L1, L2. The Viv on 240v circuit would be completely
independent of any other electrical appliance you're running. The 240v
circuit would leave the 120v duplex outlet free to use.
If you like the coffee pot on 120v @ 20a, it'll really sing on 240v @ 10a.
2400 watts either way? No, it's not. With the dedicated 20a 120v circuit,
you won't have 120v at the machine, or 20a.
Can't ignore the resistance of the Neutral line, although most people do. It
saps a lot of power from the place you want it and develops heat somewhere
else. "Where else," you ask?  Pay attention to your nose, then watch for
smoke and blue fire.
Using 100% of a circuit's capacity for a single appliance is short-sighted.

That would be at least as strong an argument against the 240V outlet. 
Just sayin'.

I really like my LM GS-3.  It will run on a 115 volt 15 amp circuit, though 
a 20 amp is better.  I have a dedicated 20 circuit.  As for a grinder, look 
on eBay for a used Mazzer.  The commercial size Major or Jolly often cost 
less than the Mini.  Buy and install new burrs and you should be good for 
years.  This is more cost effective than a new consumer grade grinder.

+1 
I found my super jolly on craigslist for $150, took a peek at the burrs and told the seller I would have to replace them and he knocked $20 off asking price.  couldn't be happier. 
total price after burr replacement - $185
