My thought would be that without using Jack and realtime priorities
then you might get the odd click & pop here and there just due to Alsa
not getting as much time as it wants. I wouldn't be too concerned at
this point.

If you ran with Jack and realtime and still heard them then I'd be
more concerned unless you had the latency cranked way down.

FYI - I run Jack 100% of the time now.
