Best Finish Spray Rig, With Best Waterbourne Cabinet Finish In Satin? Graco 9.5?

I am painting contractor that has been using the Graco 395 Ultra now for years, it has been a great machine with minimal on the job problems except spitting. I can get perfect glass finishes when cabinet doors are sprayed in a flat position but if I have to spray in a box or window corners I will get sags or spits from the gun especially with the advanced from Ben Moore. It is a great paint cause it looks like oil, drys fast, sands easy, no stink, and water clean up. You can even do 2 coats in a single day if necessary(although it says not to, I have without problems). I stop using oil cause if I leave a cabinet flat with oil paint it gets dust particles in it. I use a small fine finish tip with higher pressure to eliminate fingers.

I was thinking about purchasing the new Graco 9.5 turbine hvlp sprayer, whats your thoughts about that product? Supposively it has a new style gun with only one control. Can you switch guns or are you stuck with only graco guns with that rig, or would I want to. I like the fact that it is small and portable but everyone I talk to says I will pull my hair out cause its soooo slow compared to my airless that I am used to. I guess I would not mind if there was no spitting or sags and gave the desired look that I want?

I could do the doors with the airless and frames with the HVLP. I was also looking into the Kremlin (which according to everyone online) says is the best but it sounds bulky, loud with a compressor, a bit costly, and, can you shoot smaller amounts? Is the finish better with an HVLP or a Kremlin? Do people have problems with the Kremlin? The nearest rep is 2 states away.

Lastly, what is your favorite choice for a water based or oil/hybrid paint that sands good and gives the glassy like finish that everyone desires.
