I traded in my symphony for the crescendo. I absolutely love baby locks machines and this one is no exception. It has so many feature and they are wonderful. I also looked into upgrading to the aria but it's essentially the same machine with less features. The price difference was not very much in my area and I was using my symphony as a trade so for that it was worth getting the crescendo over the aria.
Here are some of my favorite features:
Ease of use. Right out of the box I was able to set up the crescendo and start sewing. I am a manual girl and after a few minuets of playing I did sit down and read it. The manual is very well worded and easy to read.
The lighting is awesome and adjustable. The lighting in the area I sew in isn't the greatest but my machine has wonderful lighting and that helps.
Automatic pivoting option. It makes corners and appliqué a breeze! It can be turned off and on on the touch screen. There is an included knee lifter but I use the pivot feature so I don't know how well it performs.
The laser guide is awesome for following seams. I love that you can adjust it to the right and left to fit your needs. It does show up better on some colors then others.
The new dual feed foot. I had a huge love hate relationship with the walking foot on my symphony. It did it's job but it was so loud ( I primarily sew at night after my kids are asleep) and it occasionally caught on seams. This new foot while large is quiet and I love the belt. I did find that the sole plate on this foot made it difficult to stich in the ditch with, I ended up purchasing the open toe sole for the digital dual feed and it's perfect!
The color screen! It's large and laid out very well. Super easy to navigate and sensitive to touch so you don't have to press hard. There is a lock button feature so if your working with a bulky item you can lock it and not have a problem with accidentally changining you settings.
Low top and bottom thread sensors. No more sewing noting when the bobbin runs out. My symphony would often go off while I still have enough thread to finish a seam. I feel like the crescendo goes off when there is less. If I didn't want it to keep going off thought I can turn off the alert in the settings menu.
Auto needle threaded and auto thread cutter! These are features I had never thought about before my symphony and now are a must. They work every time with out fail flawlessly. I have a lower end brother machine that I use when I'm not at home and I miss these features every time.
These are just some of my favorites but I really love everything about this machine. I love the ease of use and the fact that there are on screen help guides.
I also love how quiet the crescendo is while sewing. As I mentioned before I usually sew at night after my kids are in bed so it's nice to not have to worry about waking them up while sewing.
In total this machine is amazing and I look forward to many years of sewing with it.
It's not about the machine it's self but for as much as you pay I nicer cover would be nice. My symphony had a nice hard clear cover but the crescendo just has a flimsy polyester or some type of thin fabric.
