Good ole RFI. Do you have a ground wire running from your TT to the ground post on your preamp? Is your TT and preamp located near your windows? Many phono stages, in particular tube phono stages are very susceptable to RFI. This is true especially in urban areas. It may take multiple ground wires: One from the table to the pre, then from the pre to the ground screw on the electrical outlet, or from the pre to metal ground on your rack or cabinet.
