Personally, I do not particularly like a player system on an acoustic piano either; especially if I'm the one who is going to be playing it. But some piano owners/buyers do like them and they have their place, I suppose. With that said, I've read

I'd imagine that if it's not a solid floor, a lot of the lower frequency sound transmission will head next door through the joists. I was told that castor cups can help minimize this (with at least a layer of rubber).
