How Low Can You Go?

No, seriously, how low can you go when it comes to noise floor? (Hope I got this in under the right topic).

Noise Floor, one of those concepts that can supposedly improve your system overall right?

You ask yourself, "What can I do to improve my system overall without getting new equipment?"

Many will tell you, lower your noise floor.

But how far can it be improved? Obviously, everyone’s system will be different including room acoustics and so the solution will be different but I am inquiring to see there must be a point at which you say, well that is as low as it’s going to get, right?

For example, in my system just a while back I got a Isotek Evo 3 Sirius Power Bar and High Fidelity Cables MC-0.5 and I feel both together have made a noticeable difference, maybe not dramatic but noticeable (or maybe it’s just in my head).

But then I read about the following also:

- Dedicated power/circuit
- Computer Audio Design Ground Control Products
- JCAT Femto USB Card to enhance Digital Side

And the list can go on and on.

Is there a point where the floor is as low as it is going to go?

I should just shut up and enjoy the music.
Average 14db’s in my room.  Its zen like.  Moderate volumes are around 60dbs average.  Rocking out is 95dbs average.

Black backgrounds and low noise floors come from amps that are dead quiet (no hiss) and can provide holographic images out of a silent background.

Some peachtree amps that I had did this well.  Many high end systems do this


That room seems insane. It would be something to experience even just for a few minutes.
The Sattelite test chambers and aircraft and missile RCS / ECM test cells are amazingly quiet
