Got a question about using my K3 with WSJT-X 1.8.0 with FT8

I started looking at the “time bar” in WSJT-X and when the K3’s red TX light 
comes on with the meter showing RF going out. It is between 1.5 and 2 seconds 
after the beginning of the new 15 second sequence! In that short duration, I am 
hearing other stations’ signals coming through on my headphones, so I know that 
other folks are getting their rig to transmit right at the start of the 15 
second sequence. If mine is coming on 1.5 - 2 seconds late, I’m thinking I may 
not always get decoded on the other end.

So, I switched over to my KX3 running the same version of WSJT-X and observed 
what happened there. No delay - when the new 15 second sequence starts, the KX3 
goes into transmit almost immediately.

Both the KX3 and the K3 are connected to two identical Tascam USB125M external 
sound cards. 

Is there some setting on the K3 that is causing my transmissions to fire off a 
tad late?
