I've owned an Apple Airport Express for the last year, using its analog output to drive my amp (MacBook running OSX Snow Leopard as source) and its audio quality has always subjectively satisfied me, but lately I've been experiencing a very annoying problem: clearly audible "pops" and "clicks" superimposed to music, something like just playing back an analog record!
Wel, to cut a long story short, I finally located the cause in the latest firmware 7.6. Downgrading to 7.5.2 all the noises disappeared. Just as a proof of concept: upgrading again the pops and clicks were back.

Anybody else experiencing this same issue?

Could you please test if the analog output of your unit is also affected by this (supposed) firmware bug?

@kornchild2002: mine is a 802.11n unit, about one year old.

By the way, definitely I'm not the only one experienced it: just found a thread in Apple support forum on this same issue.
