Krell sacd+Chord Dac64 Help please

I have Krell Sacd player and use it with coupling my Chord Dac64 for redbook cds,I am really happy with this combo performance but I have a popping problem,when I choose a track
or normally start playing a redbook cd ,dac is geting locked
for 5-6 seconds and then unlocking with a popping sound.
I have to mute my preamp before I change a track or beginning a new cd till my dac unlock, there is not any other locking
status so long cd plays and finish unless you choose a track number.
I need your advice and thanks in advance.

I tried a DAC64 with a Sony 999ES a few months ago and had similar problems. The DAC64 seemed to have a hard time locking to its output. It seemed like the 999ES was turning off its digital output whenever the transport was stopped and this drove the DAC64 nuts. The DAC64 worked a lot better with an old Denon DCD-1500II CD player I have that seems to maintain a constant digital output stream. I returned the DAC64 because of the incompatibility problem with the 999ES. Maybe your Krell is doing a similar thing.
