Quiet Enjoyment: right of audiophiles neighbors to NOT be annoyed


Quiet enjoyment: "A landlord must ensure the tenants’ rights to peacefully use and enjoy the rental property. "Quiet enjoyment" The right to not be annoyed by music being played loudly. A problem for folks who may be neighbors of audiophiles and other folks who play loud music. Run table saws and loud lawn mowers at 5AM. etc...
So for audiophiles, this raises some folks hackles.. They believe their right to blast music as loud as they want over-rules a neighbors right to peace and quiet. What say you?
Naturally this does not apply to folks out in the wilds, who can only annoy the bears and deer.
For me, the fact I live in an ’Over 55" (age 55 and up, mainly like 75 and up) complex, means lots of old ladies ready to pounce on any tiny problem so they can gossip over it endlessly, and stir up as much trouble as possible, since they have nothing else to do, so I have to be cautious about playing my stereo too loud.Now back in my youth, my Mother yelling TURN THAT $&#*@$ MUSIC DOWN!! over and over... Then later, say the 1980’s.. I still played music at Rock concert levels.. In a building full of young people, no one cared... I lived directly below the manager, whom I once awoke, and she thought a truck had hit he building.. THAT LOUD.. We laughed about it. All good. As I ’grew up" I started to stop being a jerk about blasting music. And now can say even the manager here, after my being here over eleven years, when asked, has said he never heard any music from my apartment, nor any complaints. Even though I play music all day every day.
.
So for folks in multiple unit dwellings.. Apartments, condos.. even close together homes..Even family..Do you think you can annoy others to have an enjoyable listening session?

Communication is the key.

Like Elizabeth, I live in an over 55 senior community with neighbors close by. I have asked each one of them to please tell me if my music ever bothers them and to let me know if it does. Some say they never hear it. The guy across the street told me recently that he hears it sometimes, but he enjoys my taste in music. The new neighbors next door asked me one day if I would please play more Frank Sinatra. *(lol)*

Last summer, I was listening to a Milstein recording with the windows open. No joke ... one neighbor knocked on my door to tell me how much she enjoyed my violin playing, and that she owned a beautiful violin made in the 1700s. She offered to let me play it. I was complimented ... in that it showed she appreciated the high resolution and natural tonality of my system.

In any case, I’m careful to have everything shut down by 9:30 in the evening in compliance with the community rules and regulations, not to mention the fact that I’m an old geezer and need my cup of cocoa and a good nights sleep.

I've lived in the same apt. for 10 years and have never had a single complaint.  It's a good spot, 1st floor corner on a carpeted concrete slab with reinforced concrete walls.  I've turned it up and stepped outside to check it out and it's practically silent.  Of course, I'm also a big believer in 'apt. etiquette' so I try to do the right thing.  Add that to the fact that at 65, I simply don't listen to my tunes as loudly as I used to, not even in my car or with my headphones.  All that said, for the amount of rent I've paid this past decade, I pity the fool that ever asks me to turn it down!;)
