I live in a renovated condo in Chicago. My upstairs neighbors are driving me nuts with the noise.

Nearly every night after 10:00pm, the stereo booms through their floor to my ceiling and is nearly intolerable. I've gone up to ask them to turn it down which they politely do and we repeat this dance on a weekly basis. They are clueless. I'm no prude. I like loud music and play in a band but I like some solace after a reasonable hour (10-11pm).
- Talking to the neighbor. Problem goes away for week then rears it's ugly head.
- Writing letter to Condo association. They sent the offending neighbor a letter which worked for a month.
- I've tried calling the police (they responded both times but couldn't gain entry nor would neighbor answer the door).
I just sent another letter to our association but I know they generally can't do much in this situation. Any advice on this?
