I would prefer Tajima machines. My experience with them has been better than melco's. Reliable, robust and superb quality sewouts .. they keep on working without any problems for years !!

I would still recommend you read other reviews too before you buy a machine.

Tajima builds the best quality embroidery machines by far. We swapped from Melco to Tajima about 9 years ago and can not complain!

I can't and won't say anything bad about Tajima. I have a friend that has a couple of their machines and she LOVES them. That being said, I just got 2 of the Amaya XT's to compliment the Amaya I already had. I think it is an incredibly easy machine to use. I had no embroidery experience before I bought it and was really impressed with the capabilities of this machine. The XT is SOOOOOO much better than the original. I just got them setup today and I can see huge advances from the previous model.

The Amaya machine is the only machine I have ever used. It might be the worst on the market, but I don't think so.

What about A Toyota machine vs. the amaya? Went to the show in Atlantic City this past weekend and saw several machines. I had my mind set to buy an Amaya....now I am thinking along the lines of a Toyota. Seems for the cost of the machine; which is a lot less than the amaya and the detail of the work is somewhat better. Any opinions here?

How do you set the thread tension on the Amaya? The guy who is tring to sell me the machine told me that it did this automatically. Then after talking to a few other salespeople for different companies they told me that it was programed in the software, or was in the software someplace. I found this very annoying and kind of felt that I was misled.

Debbiekitkat,

The thread tension on the Amaya is incredibly easy to set. There is an adjustment you make on the computer to tell the machine what kind of material thickness you are sewing through. Every other machine works by the needle pulling the thread it needs and having a tensioner to keep it from puklling too much. The Amaya works on an Active Feed system. A set of rollers pushes the thread out at the top of the needle case and the needle just uses what its given. The system also has two different modes. A Standard Mode where you tell it what thickness you want it to operate at, and an Auto Mode where it constantly monitors the material thickness and adjusts it on the fly.

Now I have never used another machine, but I like being able to adjust my tension while the machine is sewing. You may be able to do it on other machine, I don't know. Can someone else help me with that??

I hope this clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please feel free to pm, email, or call me. I hate that you didn't get good information from the Amaya rep. Who did you talk to?? Gerald Rudishuli is my rep and I am pretty sure he was in Atlantic City. He is good. He's the reason I bought my machine.

It could be that I did not understand fully about this or it was not gone over with me. I did notice that when I was there that the Amaya had a lot of threads that broke and made the machine stop which I heard is what happens to all the machines when a thread breaks. It just seems that it happened more on that machine than all others. Still it is a pretty good machine it seems and the detail on the work it performed was good too.
