If AC is not a consideration, you can buy a 53db 2000 watt champion for about $400. They are equally as quiet as the honda 2000 watt is. They don't have the same specs. Champion will not handle the loads that the Honda will. Honda can handle surges for 30 minutes. Champions will only handle 2000 watt surges for a few seconds... But as long as your needs are under 1700 continous watts, than Champion makes a good match.
