DreamWear Nasal Mask and Leak Rate

I'm using APAP Dreamstation and Amara View Oronasal Mask from 2 months with quite good results.
Recently I decided to try the DreamWear Nasal Mask.
The resulting AHI is about the same of oronasal mask but with nasal mask I see some leakage rate peaks on the sleepyhead graph.

Are these leak peaks a problem?
Why the dreamstation do not report any significant leakage?

Any suggestion?

Please find attached the sleepyhead screenshot:

Your leaks aren't bad enough for it to effect your treatment. If they are you'll get a Large Leak shaded area in the event chart.

I agree with Walla Walla. Your leak rates aren't bad at all. At the pressures you are running, my DreamStation starts flagging large leaks when the total leaks get between 65 and 75cm. You have nothing to worry about unless they are disturbing your sleep.

Thanks to all for the fast responses. 
I'll continue to test the new mask.
