PNA-X - Fastest way to transfer data

Does anyone know the fastest way to transfer data from the PNA-X over GPIB?

Currently I only need to transfer 2-port S-parameters, so I'm using CALCulate:DATA:SNP:PORTs() in ASCII format.  It seems like this command is the fastest because I don't have to select individual measurements before transferring the data.  However, I don't know how use this command with the data in the BINARY format, which from my understanding will improve transfer time.

Any thoughts or suggestions?


Also, for what it's worth, I'm developing this in C#.
