You mentioned a couple times about noise, have you heard the stoker stoves in action to know how loud the combustion and distribution fans are along with the stoker motor? With the unit in the LR you will notice the fan noise unless it becomes second nature and fades into the background. I have our stoker in the basement and can hear when it is running sitting upstairs in the LR. I don't mind it and it's just background noise to me, (less bothersome than my tinnitus) but I wanted to let you know what you are in for.

Yes I did hear a DVC run and feel I can tolarate it. I feel the LL Pioneer LE back vent with PV should be quiter than the DV DVC alltough I havent heard a LL run. My location in the living room just makes it impossible for a class A chimmney.
