Roon Slow on Sierra

Just upgraded my Mac OS to Sierra for both server and the remote machine (connected to the audio system). Now the response of my remote machine is a bit sluggish. Everytime I start music after some silence, it takes a while (5-10 sec) for the remote to “wake up”, and it starts playing the first few seconds with a noisy start. This never happened until the previous OS X. Is there anything I can do to lighten up the load for Roon to act more quickly?
