After doing several with OSB and a couple with plain plywood, I'd recommend birch multi-ply. 1/2" birch multi-ply is not all that expensive, and it will not warp in your lifetime! OSB can end up looking like a washboard. I bought my 5 x 5 sheets of birch multi-ply for $24/ea. Thinking about all the time and money you'll end up having invested, it makes sense to build on a good foundation!


I topped it with 1/2" Homasote to keep the noise at a minimum.
