you got that... my next compressor will be quiet, or I won't buy it..
I find that I don't use air tools as much as I'd like, because of the noise of
the compressor... if it was quiet, then it wouldn't be that important how often
it ran to keep up..

When I semi-retired, the shop I left behind had a 5HP Webster cast-iron
twin with intercooler (I'm guessing a 100gallon+ tank). It came with the
building 15 years prior.
Only when it started did you hear a squeel from the 3 belts. Then it
settled in a locomotive style thumping that was almost pleasurable to
listen to. You could stand next to it and carry on a conversation.
One of us would blow it down daily, and I changed the oil every 6 months.
Kept the spray booth going, air drills, and the air logic and servos on
the edgebander... never missing a beat.
