Basically, it means that if you are in a room with lots of echo (long
decay), I can reduce it a bit.

Well, I'm still looking for help :)

These numbers sound like a problem I has a while ago with the decoder.
The VAD shouldn't take much CPU so I suspect there might be floating
point underflows in some part, slowing down the Intel CPUs a lot (for
some reason, the AMD CPUs seem to handle underflows faster).

Have you tried using the (less accurate) VAD that's in the codec itself
