The delay between pressing the Play (Space) button and the sound starting to play.

when i press the “play” button (or the spacebar which is the keyboard shortcut for playing sound) it always takes about 3 seconds (sometimes longer) before the sound actually starts playing.
What could it be?

Windows 11
Acer Swift 3 (SF314-511)
Default Audacity settings

This happens to me if I set my buffer size to 3000ms (=3 seconds):
