Sound "pops" listening to MQA files

Thanks for confirming bitracer, so I had the concept right…

I came to the same idea for the plan of action from here and have been looking over Amarra (which is a bit on the pricey side).

Do you have any other suggestions?

You can test with any bit-perfect capable player. Even Vox would do, or you can just download a trial of Amarra or JRiver.

I tested the same with Amarra player and although the problem is less obvious, it is still apparent. So it seems that the amplifier is at fault and I have contacted the manufacturer about the matter and will get back to this forum when resolved.

Thanks for the help!
