Audio transformers (also sold as "Ground Loop Isolators") in the connection to the laptop will probably fix the issue (which is, in fact a ground loop).

I use MP3's, encoded at 320k CBR at "highest quality" (slower encoding) with LAME. I know it is popular to bash on MP3 (especially here), but I have pretty damned good hearing, and...
