I've been trying to find a way to combine my two favourite hobbies, Music/HiFi and wine, so I thought I'd set  up a system in my cellar, made up of bits and pieces I had put aside over the years.

 

Currently I'm using my old Micrex P1/R1  Pre/power setup, B&W 602 S2s  and an Olive 6HD music server( finally found use for it).

 

Sounds pretty good so far. I need to set up a comfy chair now.

 

If I end up spending more time there, I'll set up a better source ( my Clearuadio Concept MC)

 

Cheers

Hi @pine weasel

 

So the question is, do you pick the wine to suit the music, or pick the music to suit the wine ??

 

JJ

The wine is the best tweak in my system.

 

Everything sounds better after a few glasses.

 

After a bottle or two, even Rap, Hip Hop and RnB are tolerable.

 

Wine also makes digital sound good!!

does expensive wine sound better or worse than average price wine?

 

I don't think it matters after the second bottle!

That must be good wine to make rap and hip hop tolerable.

What's that doing on the server anyway?

I've ripped my whole CD collection to the hard drive in the server, and there are some soundtracks, compilations etc with rap and hop hip.  They'll come on before I have time to skip them...

 I totally understand.

I am guilty of the same thing.

I always say............'I'll make a play list of all the good songs!'........................but somehow, never get around to it.

 

edit - I just remembered in the ol' CD days, I used to poke at the skip button with my pool cue!

You do have some buried treasures my friend. 
Just don’t tell the wife 😁
But just don’t neglect the main system. 

The main system isn't being neglected.

 

The cellar system is to listen to while selecting the wine.

 

The main system is for when I'm drinking it!

 

My wife isn't fussed, as long as I'm sharing the wine.

 

Cheers

Did you choose Supratek gear because the models are named after chateaux and grape varieties?? very synchronous...

They're actually old Micrex amps from the early 90s - early work from the same designer who then went on to Supratek.

 

Almost 30 years old but still pretty good to listen to.
