Hi Nir,

there is no "maximum delay" by nature. recv() returns as soon as the
host received the data by USB, so the frequency you'd effectively see
recv() return is f_sample/l_packet. The packet length is essentially
defined by USB, so on USB3 that iiiis puuh err 8192 - header. To get an
actual number for your system, you can call
