Clipping just before each song starts on the CD

I am using CDA 5.2d (Build 240) on a PC with Windows 7 (64 bit).
Burning at 10x speed on an ASUS laptop.
I have burned a Red Book CD by importing 24 bit (48 kHz) wav files into CD Architect.
There is a clipping noise just before each song starts.

Has anyone else had this problem ?
Do I need to dither to 16 bit 44.1 kHz in my DAW before importing into CD Architect ?

No, dither is done internally and CDA can accept any spec source files.

Is it there previewing in CDA ?

Is it there on all CD players , just one, or on one/all computer CD drives ? It could be a player un-muting issue.

What happens if you :
a - trim the start of each event off slightly ( there may be a chop at a non-zero-crossing).
b - and/or put a longer fade-in on each event

Same thing has been happening to me for two years now. Not a constant problem though, only happens occasionally. The only way I worked around it was to zoom into the beginning of the problem track and cut it out. Ugh.

Visible as well as audible ?!!!

If just 'audible' maybe event starting with waveform not on a zero-crossing, which will generate many harmonics.

Is Options|Preferences|Editing|Fade Edit Edges Of Audio events ticked ?

Actually, this doesn't seem to add a fade to the start and end of events dropped on timeline - only on subsequent splits. I would have thought it would (by default !) or at least be an option - easy enough to do manual though...
