It seems that this behaviour can be controlled by the SMALL_POP bit:
"Setting this bit slows down the VAG ramp from ~200ms to ~400ms to
reduce the startup
pop, but increases the turn on/off time."

Looking at the code I see its definition is wrong:

This change keeps the original intention of enabling 'small pop'. You
can try 'SGTL5000_SMALL_POP, 0);' to see if you get a quicker
