Need A Quiet Shutter

I have asked in the past and just hope I can get something more definite.

My D700 is way too noisy in the environment where I regularly shoot.  I have been if I could "turn it down."  The D200 is better but somewhat highly strung because it will only shoot to ISO1600.

Found this youtube video comparing shutter sounds and the Pentax K5II easily wins out against a D600, which I thought was quite quiet.

I'm happy with Nikon, happy with Pentax.  Either would suit my needs because both have good quality primes.

Anything to add to help me choose (in regards to shutter sound only)?
