New bike question

I just purchased a Cannondale Synapse 105 (compact double) Sunday. My 1st bike had a (triple), the drive train seemed to be allot quieter in less I was crossed chained. On new bike when I am in small ring front large cog in back seems to be noisier not much but more.
Bottom line is there more noise on compact double than the triple.
It looks to me that the chain angles are steeper. Also I was told there were just as many usable gears on the double as on the triple. It doesn't seem like it.
