Resmed S10 Airsense vs. Respironics Dream Station

From what you said earlier, you do add humidity-just not very much. In order to add no humidity you would need to leave your humidifier tank empty.

I use the side panel no humidifier option on the as10. The machine is so quite that I don't even know it's on.
I did use the humidifier for a few nights when I had a sore throat and the as10 did make a small amount of noise.

Well, I think that's a bit picky (no insult intended, as I am the prince of picky myself). I've run the machine with the humidifier dry and noticed no difference. And of course there is always some water vapour in the air. As I also use an oxygen generator I believe the overall flow will be somewhat lower in humidity than the ambient air.

I like to sleep warm and breath cool. If I up the humidity I have to heat the hose to keep away rainout and I don't like that.

You didn't specify how much water you're putting in. But if it's disappearing in a week, it sounds like you're getting some humidification whether you asked for it or not. I fill mine to the max line and it lasts more than a week with it set on one.

That's very interesting! I haven't tried either machine without humidification, but I keep it set low and have had no issues with rainout or dry sinuses. I'm intrigued though that you say it was notably quieter without the tank in place. I ran out of water in the tank once because I forgot to check it, but the sinus irritation made me look. Not sure I'd want to run without for any length of time, even if it did make the machine quieter. But I do wish the machine was quieter.
Thanks,
D Dave
