So what's the deal with the Latency setting in Sound Options? It goes from levels 1 through 10, and comes default at level 2. But what do these levels actually mean? And...Why would the emulator come with sound latency defaulted at level 2, with the sound lagging behind the video?

And besides all that, why would anyone want the sound lagging in the first place??

The latency setting is a means to compensate for slow (bad?) sound card drivers. Ideally you'd want zero latency but this isn't possible with all soundcards. If the latency setting is too low and you're using such a card, you're likely to get stuttering and distorted sound. On these cards it'll help to up the latency a bit.
