I've got pretty fast internet but beaming downloads to the HAP was not only slow but often flawed, not because of the player but because of lost connections.
I'd sit down to listen and discover that the last few minutes of a track was missing, even after being "evaluated".
Wired uploading of a symphony takes about 2 minutes. Seems quick enough for me.
I have hardwired Gbit ethernet throughout my home but the Sony network port would negotiate to only 100 Mbit. It took forever to upload my music collection and it didn't go smoothly the first couple tries. So, take forever and multiply that by a few attempts.
Once I got my music there some of the cover art didn't match the albums and it was nearly impossible to delete dupes or make metadata edits from within the Sony App on my iPad. I admit I had an earlier version of the Sony but as far as I was concerned it wasn't ready for prime time.
The Sony sounds nice but it is far easier for me to manage my music library on my music server (all in one place) vs transferring it up to the Sony and keeping CD rips 'in sync'. I just use network streamers these days and don't have any 'transferring' to do. Everything resides on the music server which also acts as a NAS to the network streamers in our home.
click on "search for album art on web," and click on correct cover.
I didn't have any massive files to load before I got the thing.
