What are you trying to achieve?

Is this for example to alter the relationship between synchronisation of audio and video track playback or do you just want a system sound to happen 5 minutes after it would normally?

Yes, we need to delay the sound coming about 5 minutes after it happens. This is a where a radio will be feeding audio to the computer constantly.

May depend on the source but there are a few simple third party apps that can manage this for you.  Have a look at this example and see if it does the kind of thing you have in mind.

Not aware of anything "built-in" that wouldn't need some significant tweaking to do this.  

As you'll have already worked out you need to create and manage a local media stream of the delay length, record to it and also play back the output, it's complicated a little by the continuous stream of input from the source and the length of delay required.  

Radio studios use bespoke software under Windows to do this  creating "profanity delays" but that is much more sophisticated, dynamically adjusting the delay depending on circumstances.  That sort of thing costs $1000+  (but still cheaper than their hardware solutions!).
