Advice on a new espresso machine purchase

Hi all, my Nespresso finally bit the dust. Not even fixable. While I enjoyed the machine, they have tripled in price, I only enjoyed one or 2 of their seasonal coffees and I'd really like an automatic machine. Mine was a manual one that I had to bend over and eyeball to see when to stop. I tried a Bialetti - not what I am looking for. Does anyone have a good espresso machine or brand they can recommend?
