I really appreciate this discussion. I am considering switching from my current Synchronika (which is plumbed in) to the Profitec Pro 800 after seeing the updates to the Pro 800, and the "silent" operation is a big draw for me.

From what I am understanding in this thread, the noise is universal among machines that are plumbed in. Have others had any success attenuating the noise by reducing the line pressure to 2.0 bar?

Since home machines tend to use water slowly, lengthening the time to refill the boilers will probably have no effect on most home users unless you're having a big parts.
