Installing some good isolation dampeners can cut the vibration and even make the noisiest compressor tolerable.  I have seen people even mount compressors in the attic of their garages sitting them on old tires.  The noise and vibration was ended but the down side of the installations were the compressor was out of sight and mind so got no maintenance.

Quincy is top quality but a 3450 motor makes a lot of noise and will wear out much quicker.
A 3450 rpm unit is not as efficient as a 1750 rpm one.

I just purchased a 5 HP 60 gallon upright, 3450 RPM 4 cylinder cast iron Baldor motor ,called "Quincy" a real compressor ,made in the U S A. It it working beautifully, as it was designed to do. Not Chi/com nor India derivative, real red-white and blue. Take a look at Quincy before you go offshore.
