The tri-burner system has been around for a long time. It has changed hands about 3 times, but the burner has remained the same. You will not find a more quiet burner out there, with very little fan noise. True, it is only a 70,000 BTU, but it does have some real good points. Being only a 70,000BTU stove with a one (1) motor system there are less moving parts to fail. The wheel that blows the air to the fire is plastic, with less drag than a steel wheel. With less drag comes less air noise, also less CFM's. This is why it's only 70,000. The plastic fan is only 31 CFM's. I don't know a whole lot about their stove, so I can't comment truthfully.
