If you want super quiet, get a solid state preamp. My C-J PV5 has some noise too. But I have to stand real close to my speakers (6"). If you can't hear it at your chair, don't worry about it.

Thank you for your advises,
Dusty, I have to be very close to the speakers, so I guess it is not unacceptable
Vernneal, I will try other sockets.
Rrog, No, I did not get it from CJ. I got it from Ebay. But the old ones I use are Mullard purchased from CJ and they have noise too. And I tried to call client service of CJ but its always answered by an answer machine.
Dwr,could you please elaborate a little bit what is a cheater plug?
