Well, at least one American has gotten a Resmed S9 Auto.
Not too impressed w/the extra cord and power brick, one of the things disliked about the Respironics devices. Not at all impressed w/the humidifier water tank, difficult to access, difficult to clean. And not too happy w/the data display either. This person says while it provides the AI via the LCD screen it doesn't provide the HI or AHI, at least not that he/she's been able to find on the LCD screen. Some are not happy about the hose attachment in the rear instead of the front, but the poster hasn't complained about that. While it is a good looking device, IMO, it does sound like the designers took a step backward in time, and not an appealing step backward at that. I'm not so sure it is going to gain the popularity of the S8s at all.
For those thinking of buying a backup xPAP I'd suggest picking up an S8 or S8 II whilst they last!!!
No, a few locals have gotten them in already. Not many, but a few.
