Overview

The term "conversion delay"is used to describe the time it takes for a signal to propagate from input to output of an analog to digital converter or digital to analog converter.

Basics

All AD converters have some finite delay between when the analog audio enters the input and when the corresponding digital audio signal appears at the output, or in the case of DA conversion; from when the digital audio input appears at the input and when the corresponding analog signal exits the analog output. The length of the delay varies with model, sample rate, and type of input/output digital interface.

For more information see latency.
