Why is that high and why should a Pi not be able to handle a standard
audio stream? 32 bits per sample, 48000 samples per second, two
channels, that makes exactly 3072000 bits per second. There's nothing
that can (or should) be done about that, that's how uncompressed audio

If you can get your ALSA device to output less bts per sample, or less
samples per second, you can reduce that rate, but I still don't
understand why.
