The parameter names are a bit misleading.
latency-time only deals with the amount of data exchanged between
pulsesink and pulseaudio. It doesn't really represent the latency.
buffer-time should be the total buffering/latency you want for your
audio chain. If you don't care about it, set it to -1 to reduce the
number of wakes and decrease power consumption
