nice to see the different ways in Pd to get to the same destination,
thanks to all for the replies

repack/array (attached) was indeed much faster, I can now receive packets of 32768 bytes and convert them in 16 bit values, put them in a table and play them without audio drops

first tests were made with an old celeron laptop doing something else at
the same time (I should try again), tests above were made on a i5 CPU @

I would say :
2. conversion from bytes to short integers
