RE: decided on mask, undecided on machine
The S9 is Resmed and has a rear hose connection.
The top hose connection is on the PR System One machines.
There are many subtle differences between the brands, power requirements being only one.
If you get a good pure sine wave inverter the machines could not tell the difference between that and a standard US 120 V wall socket, except the inverter might provide more stable power.

Normally it doesn't last but slowly over time it will come back.

Pretty much all parts are interchangable, personally I like sticking with the same brand for each.

Good luck

I got my machine at last and started therapy at home last night. At first, I thought it was bad timing because I was nursing a fever and had some nasal congestion + dry cough. But you know, I really felt better when I woke up. Fever was gone.

In a way, it was a little like waking up from the split sleep study - with less effects because I usually don't get enough sleep during week days. So, although I felt more awake while driving, at the office, I still felt moments of drowsiness. I hope my adjustment period doesn't take too long.
