Have just purchased and installed a TA 100 + A 300 recently and both are used to output sound on my B&W 805 Diamond bookshelf speakers. The TA 100 is currently connected to my Windows 10 PC via USB. I noticed that every now and then I get popping noises when browsing the Internet. It seems to happen most often when I browse through YouTube videos via Firefox.
It doesn't happen all the time but its definitely there.
My questions are:
I'm wondering what everyone else's Windows 10, Sample rate, and bit depth are currently set to?
Popping is sometimes caused by the word clock not receiving the data in a timely manner. When its too early or late the system calls for a resend of information. During this period there may be no sound or data at all. The way the computer reacts to such a sudden erop out is a “pop” sound.
Just a small piece of what I’ve been reading and learning.
Of course there may be another reason but I’ll go with this one for now.
See if you PC is up to date with drivers and software.

This sounds like the problem with a bad mute stream. Emotiva products (and some others) are notorious for this issue. There's a thread around here regarding a UMC-200 with the same problem, and within that thread there should be a link to a program that will resolve the issue. I'll see if I can find it.
