We have a seven zone Sonos system at home with a Boost. About 650 CD's ripped to NAS (FLAC and ALAC, all cover art is embedded in the files, no folder jpeg's). Unto very recently cover art display was quite rapid; it has mysteriously slowed down considerably. The network (router) is the same, the NAS is the same. This slow retrieval occurs on the main iMac in one of the zones (Play 1 speaker) as well as the IPad used as a dedicated control point in the main listening area (Sonos Connect).
The Boost is located in the main listening area is connected to the router via a network switch; not sure if this has anything to do with it (again this is where it has been). I understand from the forums that artwork comes via the selected Sonos player??

any thoughts on this? music playback is fine, album loading seems fine. Just the glacial artwork.

Library art comes via the 'Associated ZP' (see in About My Sonos System) not the selected player. Is the slow artwork intermittent? If so, see if it correlates with a specific Associated ZP.
