    ECM Giotto

    Probably the wrong place to write this in but i'm new here so please be nice.
    Is it worth to buy a ECM Giotto which is 8 years old but in excellent condition for 510$?

    .....ummm YES !!!
    It will probably need some work but that price is truly amazing if it is operational and not a rust bucket.

    In my opinion definitely & a good price. Mine has been going for years. Regular servicing keeps it in top shape and repairable when things wear out.

    That model was my first HX machine. The first ECM Giotto. It's approx 12 years old I believe.
    Cheers, Paul

    ....and if you don't buy it I will Trent. It's an investment. People are re-building these now and I have even seen a local store with one on display.

    One major job I can recommend is turn the cup holder tray around. It looks back the front in the photo. Glad to help with the techno stuff

    The thread is universal so grab any tip/s to try out. I recommend a 4 hole tip but you should try 2,3 and 4 out if you can.
