2) My Bifrost clicks. A lot. It clicks changing folders in windows and every time I play a different song. Is this normal behavior and something I'll just have to get used to? I know that it clicks, but this seems excessive. The songs are all the same sample rate btw.
My understanding (and experience) seems contrary to others here on question 2. As far as I'm aware Bifrost will click once when audio stops and once more when it starts (when using optical). This means you'll get two clicks whenever a Windows sound plays, two clicks between tracks (at least with foobar2000 that was my experience regardless of sample rate), etc.
I believe with foobar2000 at least when a track ends there is a small gap before it starts sending the next track's data, so I always got two clicks in rapid succession.
Obviously, if you have music playing you shouldn't get any clicks in the middle of a song (and that'd likely indicate an actual problem), but everything you've described sounds normal.
