One of the Kenwood hybrids would have a low noise floor. You wouldn't have dsp though, unless you wanted to add an external
dsp unit. Like others have said, that might help but it's no guarantee.
Getting something outside, if only during the night would probably help.

Some of the old tube communications receivers have very low internal noise--and sound quieter.  I think you'd only find that to be an issue on the upper HF bands, and if using a very inefficient antenna, such as an untuned loop.
