I use my Maestro Plus everyday for both my Chemex and my Innova Arc espresso machine. 2 or 3 dots from the "P" in esp, is a good place to start for espresso. The actual esp setting is a little too fine for my use.

If its too muddy, its too fine.
The extraction couldnt work its way through the coffee properly.
Try a little coarser .
The other thing that makes it muddy is not enough coffee.

Basically play around. There is not one particular grind that will work well for everyone. You likely will have to adjust your grind on a daily basis. The Solis is a great start, but ultimately isn't the best grinder for espresso. There is a lot of play in the burr carrier, and it just isn't able to produce as even of a grind as would be required by a high end espresso machine.
