Given that the script gives a pressure range, it infers an Autoset. The Airsense 10 Elite is fixed pressure; and does not conform to the script.
The few problems with the 10 series Autosets have been minor. Some complain of noise; and the original water tank design resulted in some tanks leaking. But, all in all, a good machine.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I wanted to make sure that someone was trying to sell me something I don't need. As for the pressure range, my new sleep doctor said "I don't know why they started you off so low with this for your weight." (uh, thanks), then he says "who's your insurance? Oh, you will have to pay for your CPAP if you want a new one."
I have a Resmed S7 Elite, and it still works fine, but my wife wants me to have a new one. So, I can have a spare.
Think I will go with the Resmed S10 Autoset
I would opt for the Autoset for Her.
I would also check with the insurance company directly and get their answer in writing. Often if you call 3 times you can get 3 different answers, sometimes from the same person.
