Recommended Brand for Induction Range

If price were no object, what induction cooktop range would you buy?

Here's the background to that question: We just bought a condo that forbids installing gas cooktops. I've used gas cooktop all my married life (nearing our 48th anniversary) so I'm less than thrilled with the electric cooktop installed now. I'm considering buying a range with an induction cooktop.

I've cooked with a Viking double oven for the last two years and I love it, especially the precision of the thermostat and the old-fashioned knob controls. I'm tempted to buy a Viking induction cooktop range so, at least, the oven would be a known quantity. However, I came across a thread with several complaints about quality and customer issues with Viking's induction cooktop. None of the complaints was newer than 2 years old, and some of the posts go back four years. Does anyone have recent experience with a Viking induction range or cooktop?

Recommendations please.
