I may have exaggerated the noise somewhat.. It was late at night and sounded much louder than during the day.

That 65dB is what I got though, I've emailed Hagen to see what's what.

Is it humming against a wooden cabinet?
Place it on towel?
Mine are on a solid floor. They are not silent but also they are not the loudest thing in the room. The tap makes more noise!

It's sitting inside a wooden cabinet.

But it has it's rubber legs, why would a towel make a difference?

It's an extra sound buffer.

Yeah, what they said!
The sound will resonate through the wood, umm, like a guitar body, or a drum, er, violins, pianos, all made of wood for a reason.

Hope that helps!
