It's not the AD/DA conversion that introduces most of the delay.
At 44.1 or 48 kHz the antialiasing filters are the main cause
of delay. A linear phase filter with a transition band of 1khz
(e.g. unity gain up to 21 kHz and near zero at 22 kHz) must
have a delay of around 1/1kHz or 1 ms.
Short delays are possible at 96 kHz, where you can have full gain
up to say 28 kHz going down to zero at 48 kHz. That's a range of
20 kHz, corresponding to 0.05 ms. It's one of the few advantages
of higher sample rates (but only if you don't use the full band-
