Having set my VLink v1 to 24/96 for all songs cured my pops and clicks (As posted before).

Tried out new version with everything set to use original formats, and clicking/pops still happen about 6 mins into a session. Just a FYI.

I locked all formats to 24/96 and its working fine again.

The new build may be better yet, at least with a high channel count device:

Hi Matt,
same problem when you change from a high resolution file @96kH to redbook one @44.1 kH, while it seems not a problem to move from 44.1 to 96.

Hi Matt
I have the same problem as Massimo :When I switch from a 16/44.1 track to 24/96 tracks there is no problem. However when I switch from 24/96 back to 16/44.1 I get "clicks" or stuttering.  If I then stop the 16/44.1 track and then restart it, no clicks. If I play a 16/44.1 track without playing a 24/96 previosly, no clicks.

As previously suggested, I have tried setting all tracks to play at 96/24 but this seems to make matters worse.

Currently running Mac Mini 2012 version. Mountain Lion 10.8.3 MC for MAC build 168. My DAC is a chinese built device (VALAB) using 2* WM8741 DAC chips. It is connected to the MAC via USB. The music library resides on an external 2TB USB 3 drive.

Note that with this same hardware setup I trialled the Windows Version of clicks at all.

It is also interesting to note that one of the reasons for the introduction of ML 10.8.3 was quoted by Apple as being that stuttering occured in audio on some 2011 MACs.  When I saw that I thoght well that could be it..sadly not.

Let me know if there is any data /log files etc I can provide if it will help.

Thanks for your efforts

Ticking sounds, clicking sounds, call it what you will, I get these too.

I have version .169 installed. I am using a Mac Mini with 16 gig Memory, I have an Apogee Duet as my DAC (yes I know, it will be replaced one day).

The issue happened with previous versions as well. And yes switching from 16/44 material to DSD (converted to 24/96 PCM) and back to 16/44 immediately causes the issue to happen.

Let me know if you would like more information. I thought it was just me going slowly insane...;)

I have version .169 installed. I'm using a Mac mini and a Wavelength Crimson DAC.

Clicks happening with 16/44 but not 24/96.
