may be a diff. set on a car stand, curb or etc... with a screw driver place on a non moving part and see if you feel a vibration. i may be a little off here but might be a good place to start.

My guess is either the bearings that support the diff or the clutch bearings. I've encountered this sound you speak of but can't remember what the culprit was...

gear mesh maybe?
