In considering the S9 Autoset, I have a question for any other user of this device regarding the location of the hose outlet on an attached humidifier: (1) Do you find the location convenient, and, (2) can you attach a swivel or elbow (I am not sure of the correct description) to enable you to direct the hose sideways rather than backwards? Any help would be appreciated.
Yes, that is a really stupid placement of the hose outlet.
By the way, the large power brick is also a minus for some (in case you haven't noticed that yet).
But, I think that the other pluses of the S9 AutoSet offset those "deficiencies".
I also have learned to live with the placement of the hose outlet because I also route the hose behind me & over my head.
I suggest testing your configuration on the couch, collect the data and your thoughts, and report them to your "area supervisor". Let us know your results.
