Other annoying tube noises that I've experienced are line hum, microphonics, parasitic oscillations, plus the hiss that you've already mentioned. And this was with Cary & VTL equipment, even the 5.5 I couldn't stand it. Good reason to go with solid state; I did & have never looked back. I don't *even* miss the wasted power consumption & overheated room in warmer months either.
