You could try the yellow pages..? Under G for glass or W for window.

There are studio supply houses that MIGHT carry such things. However, they are likely to be quite expensive. Finding one the size you needed could be problematic. Having one custom made would probably be prohibitive.

TAB Books has a book on building a home recording studio on a budget which has detailed instructions for such a window. As I recall it was fairly simple to build and would save you a bundle. The key features were non-parallel double glass panes set in sound-deadening material with an acoustic trap between.

HTH,

Richard

Note that the real ones are usually filled with a gas to further enhance the insulation properties of the construction.

I would have thought that sucking out any gases between the glass panes to create a vacuum would give better sound isolation?

Not really , I guess the coupling of the two surfaces only gets stronger through the suction? I'm no building material expert but I didn't hear of ones with a vacuum yet.

The 'big guys' use solid glass, two layers, at different angles and with different thicknesses. Watching these go in is especially interesting! :-)

Windows can pose sound quality issues. Due to sound isolation and reflections. If not done right.

You can also go the camera small tv route as well. That is what I'm doing.
