Although it is well known how great a role of sound insulation is in achieving good acoustics as a pre-requisite of high quality recording and broadcasting, acoustical design of studio premises will often inevitably be a matter of compromise, due to high investment costs. In this paper technical and economical aspects of sound insulation requirements in radio and television studio centres are considered and possibilities of cost saving are discussed. The experience in recording and broadcasting suggests that, for some of the sound-control cubicles it is not always necessary to provide as stringent a degree of protection against background noise as prescribed by recommendations and standards. The excerpts from the Recommendations of the Yugoslav Radio and Television Technical Committee are given, as well.
