A Quieter Toe Kick Heater?

Greetings folks. I may be forced into hydronic toe kick heaters for a kitchen reno currently underway. Past experience (dated?) is that these units tend to be loud. Hoping to get a few recommendations for a quality, quieter kick heater. Cheers

    Most of the toe kicks I have been around are so quiet I can't tell if they are running. Did the one you have need some cleaning or something?

    I have a VRV Quiet One that sounds like a hair dryer on low setting. A Broan electric kick in a bathroom that is much louder.

    Looks like Turbonics and Beacon Morris are Wall favorites.

    I like Turbonics because it has a fan similar to a computer muffin fan. Long Cage fans, 10", are noiser.
