I'm curious if you had had an opportunity to try the new HQ Capri as well. It also has the stitch regulator sensors built into the table, but placed a little differently than the Juki. Both machines have the same SPI - not sure, does Juki's regulator also have "cruise" mode?

I learned last week that Innova has discontinued their sit down, which had the sensors in the table as well. While there are a couple of demos/store units still out there, I wouldn't want to buy a product they (Innova) might not be able to support in a few years (should they stop stocking the sensor parts, which are unique to the sit down).
