I just bought a Respironics Dream Station Auto machine and it whines every time I take a breath. I can't sleep for listening to my own amplified breathing via the machine neither can my wife. I understand that all of them make some type of noise but this is ridiculous. My old Respironics System One machine didn't make any extra noise while I was breathing. What machine do you recommend that does not make any whining noises when you breath? Thanks for your help.

Based on specifications the DreamStation is supposed to be quieter than the ResMed AirSense 10 Auto. If you are noticing it to be louder when inhaling you may want to check and see if Flex is turned on. It boosts air pressure during inhale and reduces on exhale. It may be quieter without it on. The machines tend to be more effective without it in any case.
