You may be hearing tape hiss coming from the master tapes used at the recording sessions. This sound will be exacerbated by audio systems with an upper mid- range emphasis. When i look at your components my first reaction would be to expiriment with your CDP, try heavier guage speaker wire (i.e. 10 guage generic 100% copper twisted wire)and or try changing the direction your speakers are pointing (perhaps you are listening to them on axis - most speakers sound better off axis). I try these things in reverse order, cheaper that way.
