Issues with Audio Aux and PreSonus Studio 1810c

The delay between Audio Aux indication and output from the 1810c starts out at approximately .1333 sec and increases over time to over one second. Turning off the Audio Aux and back on starts the process all over. An Audio Aux to a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 behaves normally.
