Now, it would be a hassle.
Haha!! I get it! .

Agreed with everyone on professional acoustic consultation and dedicated line.

I quite like what RivesAudio designed for my room. They are familiar with planar speakers.

Thinking through this a little more and I am wondering about the drop ceiling suggestion. I fully understand the flexibility it provides to run wires and maintain access over time but I would ask If you are interested in isolating your upstairs from the music downstairs. If so, then running whisper clips and drywall (if you have the height to sacrifice) would provide that isolation and dampening.

Just another design thought.

My room is isolated on all walls and especially in the ceiling as my family (TV) room is above it and it would be intolerable to the boss if I hadn't isolated my dedicated room.

Isolation treatment and acoustic treatment are, of course, two different things. I would still put sound isolation material between the floor joists when using a drop ceiling. But since acoustic absorption panels are made in the 2'x2' size used for "drop in" the drop ceiling allows for both. It would be less effective than double drywall and green glue over sound insulation as far as "quiet in the rest of the house" goes, but would be a compromise allowing some built-in acoustic treatment.

Well. Yes. The thought was suspended ceiling with insulation between the joists. So yes I do need some isolation from the great room upstairs. So the thought was insulation / drop ceiling. Are you thinking that might not do the trick?

I used to have a ranch and the bedroom was above. I now have a colonial so the bedrooms are upstairs. And as u said ... 'The boss'...we referred to her as 'the warden' did complain. .
