The problem is he's not like the rest of us. He is unique just like the rest of us. If you understand this concept the better for the rest of us.

I vehemently disagree with the above uneducated speculation. Using treatments and focusing on room decay is a very audible improvement.

the 100 year old horse-hair plaster and slat board is a terrific absorber, compared to the near total audio disaster that is drywall and 2x4 framing.

Ain't that the truth. Discovered that when I renovated my 120yo Victorian semi. Should've put 2 layers of drywall up, at least. Haven't done the bathroom yet, and it's the best sounding room in the house. :lol:



Yeah, use 2x 1/2" drywall, with green glue, floated, with the proper sealant around the periphery. Absorption and limited transmission. Page one in the 101 course on making a good sounding house.
