How old is your home? This could be a home wiring issue.

It’s a 6 year old condo and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a wiring issue. How does one confirm that? I’m using Sonos, sorry for not mentioning it. I checked all connection and they were tight, I’m about to check again. The popping comes from both left and right and sounds like more the mid and tweeter.
"Turned the amp off, dac on and gone"
If you think the fault lies within the amp - with it turned ON and nothing connected to it other than speakers, lift one side maybe 1/2 " or so and let it fall back down, try both sides. If theres a loose solder joint or connection inside that can be exited by the quite small vibrations form bouncing kids on the floor, above will certainly expose it.

Mass and elastic.
I would not go 'poking around with a stick' inside an open amplifier with it turned on.. But that is just me.
I do swap duplex with power on at times.. Some things are scarier. (mainly due to fear of blowing up amp.).
Anyway, my notion is get a nice 20" or 24" suitable concrete patio square for $4 at Builder's square. and a couple of rubber pads.
I also added tip toes under the concrete, but that may be unneeded.
I also use #10 butyl chemical bottle stoppers.. But any sort of rubber bumps will do.Amazon has sorbothane rubber feet. main ones called "Isolate-it"in all sorts of weight carrying sizes
Place the amp feet on the rubber on the concrete square.
