SP II Vs Mythos One:
The SP II is a direct competitor to the VA Mythos One in terms of performance. It has been argued that the SP II does not overheat like the Mythos One does, due to it's two fan system. Speed wise they are on a par, while distribution is also very similar.

If you need to adjust, you simply hold down the button you are looking to alter the time on and you enter program mode for that button. Once there, you can move the time settings for secs & tenth secs up or down.
Shot time: The average shot time of a double shot is around 4.5 secs.
Barista button: A very simple and effective button placed on the bottom left hand side allows you to top up doses manually. This is hugely helpful instead fo having to enter any program mode to perform a small corrections to doses.
