    If you're going towards high end equipment, I would take a serious look at a fully communicating heat pump system.
    Tam8 with an XV18 or XV20 variable speed outdoor unit and 850 stat.

    Lowering the air flow can make a big difference for comfort.
    It can also cause liquid refrigerant to make it to the compressor, depending on a few factors.
    You might want to have it checked.
