With a Pi4 and files on a NAS mounted by NFS the scan time is
appreciably quicker than a Pi3 in similar mode. This is with the db on
the Pi not on the NAS. 
That said a Pi4 is not as quick as an old HP Microserver with SSD for
the OS and db but files on the NAs via NFS. Its the SSD which stores the
db that makes most difference.

*Office* - Pi3+Sreen -> Sony TAFE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi2+DAC & SB3

*Bedroom (Bedside)* - Pi2+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
