The inverter whine on the 360/50 and /65 was completely
insane, and the 2500 Hz output put the pulses from the
push-pull SCRs at 5 KHz, near the ear's peak sensitivity.
They had to lay out the machine room so nobody would have to
be near it for more than a few seconds. The tape library
and CE work area was back behind the CPU.
But, it was not really audible near the console.
