Can anyone tell me what the differences are between the Babylock Symphony and the Espire. Someone told me it's just a matter of additional stitches and since the Espire had been out for awhile, Babylock wanted a name change to generate buzz. Can anyone confirm for me?

I think they added additional lighting as one of the upgrades, but not 100% sure.

IIRC, the lighting is the same; the differences were additional stitches, additional choice of languages, and the circular attachment.

I was pretty PO'd at the time, as I had just recently purchased the Espire, and the differences were so minor they didn't even make sense...until the other new models came out, all with their musical reference names.
