RE: Tube amplifier hum

This is clearly a grounding issue. You don't mention if the headphone amp has a grounded power cord, but is seems as if it is not properly grounded. When sitting on the other equipment it is possible the other equipment is providing the ground; it could even be the CD player that is providing the ground through the SS amp upon which the headphone amp is sitting.
