But after reading these many posts, and other on toher forums, I am re-thinking this choice.
All machines make some kind of noise and usually notice first put the mask on but it slowly goes away as my breathing settle down.
As far as I can see the choice is so clear and the S9 AutoSet is very tough act to follow as Phillips Respironcis and others got a lot of catching up to do before start recommending their machines.
[S9 is a cpap machine but not all cpap machines are S9,s]
Some of the important S9 features (not available on the PRS1)
-LCD data: shows breakdown of AHI and leak (unintentional)
-Climate control - climate line (heated hose) and no rainout
-Mask setting (type of mask: nasal, pillows, full face)
unlike the silly PR resistance setting for Respironics masks which has nothing to do with leak reporting.
-ResSan and SleepyHead software (both free) support the S9 and for now SH don,t support 60 series and not sure if you could buy Respironcis Encore viewer either.
