I didn't meet the ADP criteria for APAP but the cost difference for a second hand AutoSet meant that for a few bucks more I could have the more capable machine. I now own an Elite and an AutoSet.
Any Cpap machine is "capable" of treating OSA effectively. Especially if you have a good sleep doctor and have done the necessary titration tests, so not one machine is more "capable" just some have more features.
All s9's come with a 5 year warranty, so having one for back up parts seems like a waste of money.
