A noisy house in Thorpe St Andrew was raided by police and council officers this week after ongoing complaints.
Music equipment including three hi-fi stereos, two mixing decks and two televisions were confiscated.
The raid came after occupants had failed to observe a noise abatement notice.
Andy Jarvis, head of environmental services at Broadland District Council, said: 'This action was taken to deal with a serious and persistent noise maker who wilfully ignored a legal notice served by the Council.
'This is a reminder to the few anti-social residents in Broadland who think they can get away with disturbing the peace that we will take action to deal with their behaviour.
'With the summer nearly upon us I would ask everyone to think if they are having a party or barbeque - keep music to a reasonable level and check that you are not causing a problem to others. Keep the music to yourself,' he said.
