Thomas, it would be great if you're able to measure this the next time you're about to install a wood floor over a concrete slab.

Ok, I will!

I usually measure at 80% of completion, and then 100%, so what I have now in stock is irrelevant as much more than just the floor is added in the last 20% phase of building.

We will be finishing 2 projects in late March/April, both with wood floors (one is real thick floor, the other cheaper 'Quick-Step' like). I'll try and make a measurement in each of the rooms just before flooring and right after to try and get something usable.

I could be totally crazy but installing parquet over concrete in my new room last week changed the sound slightly.  Its a new constructed room with zero absorption (only drywall and a hard floor) so the room is super live and intense.  Installing the wood floor seems to have made it a slightly less crazy sounding.  

I'm by no means an expert but feel pretty confident that the difference I hear isn't in my head.

Oh man, it would have been great if you could have measured the room before and after. This is what's really needed - hard data.
