XPS-17 9700 Pop sound on first use of speakers after boot

I have a new XPS-17. I noticed that the first time the speakers are used after boot, there is a short pop/crackle the precedes the sound. Is this normal?

I don't know if it's related but tonight, the Intel sound driver just failed. It said no power (I didn't take down the error in the driver info).  The other sound drivers remained normal. When I ran a troubleshooter, it said I didn't have speakers. I uninstalled the driver, rebooted and it's back.

The pop/crackle was happening before this driver/power failure and still is now.

I have scanned for updates from Dell and Microsoft. All up to date.

I've only been using the laptop for a few days.

Thanks!

UPDATE: It happens more often than just after boot.

I didn't mention this because I wasn't sure but it just happened again and I have been using the computer for an hour since last reboot.
