Need recommendations for a LOUD white noise machine.

I snore pretty bad, so my wife has to have a white noise machine and a box fan running to drown me out. She had the little Magicteam unit that was loud enough, but a big drawback was that it would only run a maximum of five hours and would shut off (I wonder whose bright idea that was?). She needs it to run all night, so at least 8ish hours. The magicteam just gave up the ghost and we need to get another one. Anyone have any suggestions? Keep in mind that we don't want a low volume, soothing unit, we need a LOUD, drown out my fat a$$ snoring, unit.

Maybe you should be tested for sleep apnea

I don't seem to fit the symptoms. I sleep very well, don't wake up repeatedly, and don't feel tired when I wake up in the morning. She also says I don't seem to stop breathing. I think it's more of an "I need to lose 20 pounds." problem.

I second that. Talk to your doctor about getting a sleep study done. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), itís a sign of a bigger problem.

Get a nice bluetooth speaker for your bedroom, something that's got the volume she needs, like a soundbar or one of those portable jobs that has good sound. Then play whatever soothing sounds she likes from her phone (or whatever device you have available) through the speaker.
Go this route and you also have the speaker for other purposes, and not something only useful when it's time to sleep.

Neither of us are techy at all, and struggle just to get the Playstation turned off and back to regular TV when the grandkids leave. We just want a box on the nightstand with a button we can push to turn it on.

I would do it the low tech way. AM radio tuned NOT to a station - radio static.

I have an iPhone app called White Noise. Put a bluetooth speaker on her nightstand and you can pick from dozens of different background sounds and white noise variations. I like(d) it when flying on commercial airliners with my earphones.

We switch the AC from auto to on, so the fan runs all night. It seems to be enough to drown out the occasional campground noise too.
