I can see I'll be in the minority on this, but...
if you're doing sets of 5, especially on the barbell rows, you should be able to do them without dropping the weights hard each rep.
Why not try this: If you can't control the weight going down, that means you're using momentum to lift the weight going up. Try using stricter form on the barbell rows. This is definitely an exercise where strict form and a controlled descent can be beneficial. It's the way I prefer to do them. Any weight I can perform a strict rep with, I can also lower it down reasonably.
205 shouldn't make much noise anyway. That's not much weight. If it's making so much noise that you're being called out for it, then you're probably wrong here.
