Audio Popping / Crackling on play / pause?

Hi all, just received this board today and love it already. One thing I’ve noticed when using the onboard audio line out - when audio starts or stops there is a very loud pop or crackle that lasts about half a second.

Is there anything I can do in either hardware or software to prevent this? Thanks in advance for reading

Usually, pops and crackles like that happen when the audio stream is switched on without the output hardware being muted. This is something that can probably be fixed, but would require modifications to the ALSA machine driver in respect to output hardware coordination.
