Noisy DreamStation
The noise from my machine was quite audible to my wife -- she woke me up yelling that she could not sleep due to the noise! I was back at my sleep clinic today and they said that Phillips is aware of the problem and addressing it. My guess is they got a bad batch of parts from a supplier. I got a replacement today for my loaner. I hope this one is quiet all night.

This can have some strange effects. You may hear it coming from somewhere other than your CPAP machine. You may hear it yourself, but others standing by may not hear it, making them think you're crazy. If you do something like put the CPAP in a box to block the noise, you may still hear it.

I have no solution, just pointing out something that may make it difficult to fix the noise problem.

I don't know for sure whether the DreamStations do this the way the PRS1 models do.

Duhhh.... That should say "The previous Philips Respironics PRS1 machines tended to send NOISE down the air hose"

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
I wondered about that, but figured I'd get called a troll again if I asked.
