Advice buying a protien skimmer

Hi I'm using a Tropical Marine Centre V2 200 Compact Protein Skimmer, I have had it for almost a year and it's always been so noisy in my living room, I was told by the manufacture it would get quieter with time but it's really loud still 11 months on, its time to get a new protein skimmer i think as i cant put up with the gurgling any more but I'm not sure where to start. I don't use a sump i have a canister filter and my new one needs to be almost silent,( within reason) Any advice and past experiences would be great full thanks nick
