Unlimited buffers tend to get unlimited big, crashing your app with
out-of-memory. Huge buffers also add lag to the signal. With no
bandwidth issues, buffers are usually almost empty, with bandwidth
issues, buffers are usually almost full.

In the end you set them as big as necessary, and as small as possible.
And giving them a fixed size (possibly configurable) is less
complicated, especially in a multi-threaded environment.
