Click/Pop Sound with Spacebar Start/Stop Playback Cubase 9.5/10.5

Hey all,

New machine, AMD Ryzen 5950x build, Samsung NVME drives, 128GB RAM, Win 10 Pro etc, I’ve noticed almost every time I hit the space bar for start/stop playback, I get a click/pop noise. This goes for sessions that have a singular track, or multiple. I’ve tried to adjust ASIO/Buffer settings, nothing alleviates it. Any clues?
