I should have been clearer earlier in the thread: the FPGA/high level problem is a DS Sr only problem.
Tho you said you have the exact same problem we don’t know which problem you have. A tick between DSD tracks is a problem in the source, but I’ve tried to lower it in the last two releases. I’ve killed a few pops between tracks for some people, but there can’t be a perfect solution for this.
Since you have the problem independently of the DS volume setting it’s not Redcloud per se, tho if you are using the bridge it could be a bridge or Roon problem. There are people talking about those on various threads, but I don’t know the current state of any of those issues, perhaps someone might say here.
Random ticks every once in a while can also be input cabling issues. If you have any spare cables (pretty or ugly) you might swap them in as a quick experiment.
You should contact PS Audio support.
