Audio delay

Negative Comment by Venom88
about Airfoil and WiFi Audio Wireless Speaker May 2014

First of all Airfoil is a paid app, only a free trial is available then you can stream just loudness if you don't pay :(

Then using it with my Android phone I get about 5 seconds of audio delay and it's quite annoying.

Actually I found Small WiFi Audio Wireless Speaker iconWiFi Audio Wireless Speaker easier, cheaper (since it's free :P ) and without delays :)

Is there a reason why a functionality like this isn't built-in in Mac OS X?
