Looking for Good/Quiet Needle Wheel Pump

I really want the Sicce PSK-1000 but no one seems to be able to get the venturi for it for at least another month. I'm not sure what my second choice would be. Maybe Danner or Octopus? Something that puts out at minimum 800 GPH or close to that.

Any experiences good or bad? Thanks

I have had the Danner for 6 years and it is still pretty quiet. It is in a 125 in the living room about 6 feet from my chair - if I concentrate I can hear it but not loudly, even when I was studying.
