Happy customer, very quite unit
Pros - very quiet and energy efficient
Cons - High cost
I have been using the unit for 6 months now I am very happy with the unit.
I got the SRK20ZSXA-W, 7 star rated 2KW split system installed for a 16 square meter study.
I work 1 meter away from it and the indoor unit is very quiet on low fan speed and I hardly know it is working. The external unit is installed on a fibro wall but no vibrations or excess noise come through to the study. It is quite adequate to keep the room at the temperature and probably too big for the room as 23 in summer...
Purchased in September 2018 for $1,885.00.
- Avanti PLUS SRK20ZSXA-W (2.0 kW)
Shush .. the Avanti Plus is trying to say something!
Split system air conditioners - holy moly, there sure are a lot of those around! Am I right or am I right. Anyhoo, we wanted a small, quiet and efficient unit (e.g. 2KW) for a bedroom. I must admit to being drawn to this brand after having a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries fridge (which runs so quietly you can hardly hear it). It was still a close call between the Mitsu, Panasonic, and Daikin, but in the end I was sold on the fact that this 7 star unit was engineered by renowned, Italian industrial design firm TENSA, boasting a sleek, sophisticate...d and modern design that was awarded the Silver A’Design Award in 2017. "Whoa back there - did you say 'TENSA' .. err I mean '7 star' ? " "Ahuh.. yes I did. May I continue? .. <whistle> So anyway, it turns out that the Avanti Plus is one of the only 7 star rated options out there (round of applause). The unit is very similar in features to the Avanti, which is its 5 star rated 'uglier' cousin, but probably just as good an option if budget is an issue. You can also find the Avanti line at the likes of Bunnings or Harvey, whereas this was a little more sparse and hence not as heavily discounted. Price difference is around 300 on a 2Kw system. For the extra coin, you do get a slightly different chassis, a motion sensor (like on the Daikin) an ultra Eco mode (for that bonus two stars in efficiency), plus some smarty pants allergy filters (cough). That TENSA design obviously cost some biscuits as well. It's still a big white box on the wall people - don't get your hopes up. Anyway, the unit is shaped quite nicely for an aircon, but it's not until you turn things on where you will notice the difference to cheaper brands. This thing is ultra quiet ... and I don't use the word 'ultra' lightly here. Not just inside either. The big difference to other systems I've seen and heard is for the outside unit. Super silent compressor unit - very impressive. Even the installer couldn't believe how silent this thing ran. You would have no problems installing this right next to a paper thin bedroom wall or near windows. The only aspect not entirely silent is the fancy flap mechanism when the unit turns on or off. The whole front fascia lifts up to reveal the IR sensor, and that motion can be slightly creaky. Once running however, it's much like most other internal units in terms of fan noise. The fan on low is very quiet.

You can refer to page 12, 25 and 30 of the user manual to learn more about the motion sensor and the 'eco operation' including how to turn it off. I've listed below the link to download the manual.
Hope this helps however if you have any other questions, you can contact us on 1300 138 007.
I plan to install air- con to two adjacent small bedrooms. Should I get 2 x Avanti (2kw) or one multi-split 4kw (SCM-ZS) ? I am comparing them in terms of operation efficiency, economy and cost of installation. Please advise. Thanks
I would think that 2 smaller will be much cheaper. When I looked the multi was $$$.
Not sure about efficiency but I'd suspect the same answer.
Unless it is a really difficult installation
