My Sony C333ES is fairly noisy when playing SACDs too. I don't hear it from my chair though so I have been overlooking it.

Some of the modders out there damp the transport as part of their routine. You might want to look over your transport and see if you can apply damping material inside to lessen the 'noise'.
If you can could you report back in a couple of months as to how things worked out. I am interested in how it settles down after break-in.
