The speaker emits a "popping" sound when audio starts or during boot and shutdown. We are currently working on a BIOS update to resolve this issue.
If you are using a Debian based distribution, this issue can be resolved by installing our starlabs-lite-mk-ii package. To do this, enter the below commands in a terminal window.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:starlabs/ppa -y
sudo apt install starlabs-lite-mk-ii -y
On other distributions, it is possible to resolve this issue by entering the below commands in a terminal window. This will not conflict with the upcoming EC update.
echo "options snd-hda-intel power_save=0" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
sudo update-initramfs -u
