Yes, simply resting a book against the back vent makes it completely inaudible to me.Mac Studio is not loud, but it is audible. IMHO the more you listen to the noise the more you hear. Its crazy! But… covering the air out area with hand reduces noticeably (practically completely) the sound that everyone is talking about here.
Cold air seem to still make it out of the sides too, and it doesn't appear to affect the temperatures that much even under heavy loads.
I think the studio would probably be fine inside a cupboard tbh for those of us who don't want to hear the fans.
