Loud Popping Noise In Between Songs on CD Playback - Uniti Star

Hi.
I just received a Uniti Star, which sounds great, except that there is a very loud, popping noise in between songs during CD playback.
A few notes:
-It is a quick noise
-Very loud
-Sort of like a loud static “pop”
-It only happens during the gap in between songs, and not during a song
-It happens in between some, but not all, songs
-It happens after about 30% of the songs
-It happens on a variety of different CDs
-Some of the CDs are brand new
-Firmware is up to date
-I am in the USA

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

Does it happen regardless of the source or just when playing CDs?

Are you using a Naim Powerline?

Have you been in touch with your supplying Naim dealer?

I’d unplug it immediately and talk to your dealer. Take a CD it happens with and the Star back to the dealer if possible.

Make sure the mains cable is shoved in properly.

Thanks so much for all of the feedback and suggestions!
I think I have solved the issue, for anyone who has the same problem.

Short Explanation: I am dumb and impatient.

Long Explanation: The grounding switch on the back should be set to “Default” instead of “Floating.” It arrived with the switch in Floating position. I was so psyched to start using it that I did not read all of the manuals and online resources. They said that it should be in Default, other than with some specific setups.

Certainly an admission there - but well done for doing so… :thinking:
