I just want to updated my compressor from ustar to some quiet models. I searched the forum, many one suggest sil-air 20A model, is this the same as the Silentaire super silent 20A? Because I don't find 20a type in sil-air series on Silentaire website but in super silent series? If they are different, where can I get sil-air 20A?

Wang, I think there is no such model as a Sil-Air 20A; since their website is the definitive source of info on their compressor range, and although they have a "Sil-Air" range, the 20A is not part of it; instead the 20A is part of their "Super Silent" range. The Sil-Air range seems to be more professional, and starts at $1100, while the Super Silent range seems more hobby oriented and starts at $650.

As to where you can buy one, there is an enquiry form on their site through which you could ask about dealers in your part of the world, otherwise there are people selling these things on Ebay. Postage may be a lot however.
