Delayed sound playback

For my project, I need to play mp3 file and obtain audio output on audio jack. The playback goes fine except that there is a half second delay before the audio starts. This matters because I am generating an alarm on speakers on certain event and half second delay is not permissible. The size of mp3 file is 560 KB and the length is 4 seconds.

The exact command is: 
mpg123 abc.mp3

I am new to linux and I am not able to figure out what is going wrong. I have tried loads of variations of the same command with reference from mpg123 man page.

Kindly provide few suggestions.
Thanks in advance!
