I've always had preference to Daikin. We've got a Daikin high wall in our current home.
We are in the process of building a new home and are getting a Daikin Ducted system. Going to cost around $16k.
Out of interest, which model Daikin ducted system are you having installed? (We had ours put in last year, and it had its "issues"; if it's the same or similar model, I can warn you of these!)
