Axiom Amp Naming Contest

Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/05/07 10:01 AM

At last! The naming contest for the new Axiom Amplifier is upon us! Please submit your best names by midnight on Sunday - the winner will receive a $500 Axiom gift certificate in exchange for his or her efforts.

A few details from Ian and Tom about this product to help you in your search for the best name:

The amp will put out 1,400 watts of continuous power. It is very efficient so it is possible to get this power output from a single 15 amp wall plug. Since each amp module will pass full power you can get 1,400 watts continuous out of a single channel @ 2 ohms. The large amount of capacitance in this amp will allow for peaks above this power. This allows output per channel to not be limited by the amp module but rather the total power of all channels up to the output of the power supply. The standard rating in the industry is one channel driven at full power and the other 6 channels at 1/8 power. This is reflected in the specs below. We've future-proofed this product by adding an 8th channel to it (nice if you are
running 2 centers).

HWD inches: 3.9 x 17.9 x 17.4
HWD mm: 100 x 455 x 442

Power (1 channel driven)
8 ohms - 350 watts
4 ohms - 700 watts
2 ohms - 1,400 watts

Power (1 channel full and 6 channels at 1/8 power)
8 ohms - 350 watts per channel
4 ohms - 700 watts per channel
2 ohms - 800 watts per channel

Power (7 channels driven)
All impedances - 200 watts per channel

For those of you that are better at picturing products when you see pictures, here is the power equation:



The faceplate, voted on by members of the Axiom Owner's Club, is 'gently curved', and the logo, voted on by members of the message boards, is 'in-and-out'. The entire amplifier case is die-cast aluminum and the digital technology contained inside allows this amp to run very cool to the touch - even during a party! Here's a rendering:



Already submitted entries are Axiom Amplifier, AX1400, and the Axiom Kilowatt. All new entries welcome, even if they have been previously submitted for other Axiom products.

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/05/07 10:23 AM

I'm thinking along the lines of "One", as this is the first product in this category, and I think that such a name will stand the test of time in Axiom history to any future amp projects. Further, it's a tiny bit boastful about market position without being pushy!

So…..

The Axiom One
Amplifier One
D1 (for digital One)
Reference One
TC One (or TC-1) (For Tom Cumberland)

Since the top speaker line is the VaSSallo Series, I wonder if a top end fusion reactor amp will be called the Cumberland Series.....
Posted by: Ajax

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/05/07 11:30 AM

I am a fan of names that describe the product. It's a bit difficult to come up with a name like that for a single product without knowing if there will be more products in the line, and their differences. If you are simply looking for a generic title, since you already have the Epicenter (EP) line for your subs, something related, like EQ (for Earthquake, or Equilibrium, or Equation, or whatever), or something similar might work.

If there will be more amps in the line with different power, then EQ1400 would define this product. If there will be more models with a different number of channels (2, or 3, or 5), then EQ8 would be descriptive. If there would be amps with differing power and channels, then use EQ1400-8.

Alternative ideas:

Axiom Excalibur, Excellence, Extend, Extreme - EX1400-8, etc. (I was going to suggest "Explosion," but that might not be a good name for a power amplifier. I also eliminated "Extort," "Exterminate," and "Extinct")

The Axiom "Xterminator" or "X-terminator, or "Xtreme"? - XT1400-8

Axiom Command - AC1400, etc. (if there is a processor in the offing, this might be a better name for that)

If this is the only amp to ever see the light of day, then never mind.

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/05/07 11:34 AM

Axiom Niagara (or the N7)

Here I go with the nature theme again, but here's why:

My initial impression of the gently curved face plate conjured up images of Niagara Falls and it's curved face. From there we think of the awesome power of the falls, and of course the awesome power of this amp. The falls is also a natural "surround" environment (If you've ever been on the Maid of the Mist you know exactly what I'm talking about), and this is the perfect amp for a home 'surround' system. Imagine the falls as your screen and the amazing power of the Axiom Niagara amplifier is enveloping you with clean, pure sound! Besides, "Niagara" just sounds strong.

Want to take it down a notch? Sit back with a glass of wine from the famous Niagara wine region with the amp in 2 channel mode and relax knowing that every note is as sweet and refined as the wine you are drinking.

You know you're not gambling with the Axiom Niagara amp! (Okay, sorry... I'm reaching a bit there, but I had to throw a casino reference in for fun).

Cheers!

(fingers crossed, again!)

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/05/07 11:41 AM

I should note with all my entry names "8 channel amp" can be replaced with "1400"

IE: Axiom Omega 1400 Digital Amp, Axiom Alpha 1400 Digital Amp, Axiom Avant-Garde 1400 Digital Amp.

Wow, there are already alot of good names, there will be some broken hearts with this contest, thats for sure!

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/05/07 11:51 AM

can we get clarification on how many channels the amp actually has? i see the specifications show 200 watts with all 7 channels driven which equals 1400 watts, but there is no mention of the power with 8 channels driven, only mention that there is an 8th channel.

if in fact the amp does have 8 channels, I revise the abbreviation in my entry to "N8", as opposed to "N7".

here's a bit of fun to go along with my submission:



and the story goes:

The Falls gave power to the Power Plant.

The Power Plant gave it's energy to the Aluminum factory.

The Aluminum factory sent it Aluminum to Axiom.

Axiom designed a beautiful amp with the factory's Aluminum.

The Amp drove the speakers that made the customers happy!

Of course, The Falls was so impressed with the power and efficiency of Axiom's new amp, it was generous enough to lend it's name. Niagara.

How about the Axiom Pristina?

Reason: Axiom is all about delivering clean, pure, high-energy, high-quality pristine sound. Adding the "a" on the end gives it that marketing tweak.

The only other Pristinas I have found that you would have to avoid confusion with are the capital city of Kosovo and a little-known collective of electronic musicians.

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/05/07 01:48 PM

Oh boy Amie, I hope I win this one. This would be a great opportunity for me to send my Emotiva amp back and use the winnings to get one of these new amps. I'm sure it would not have any problem filling my 8,000 cu ft space, or would ever shutdown.

I think it is very important that you continue to recognize Axiom's canadian heritage. When I first received my Axiom speakers, it impressed me to see "French" wording on the exterior of the boxes. Although I don't speak french, I think it is very important for you guys to BE PROUND of your heritage as one of the best Canadian Speaker companies ever.

So, below are my selections in French (I used Google tranlator to help me)


perfection or parachèvement - the name says it all.

parangon (paragon) - an ideal instance; a perfect embodiment of a concept.

utopie (utopia) - considered to be perfect or ideal.

brillance (brilliance) - the quality of being magnificent or splendid or grand.

sans paire or sans égal (peerless) - eminent beyond or above comparison

ps: I'm crossing my fingers.

Aria
Arpeggio
The Ballet

Chorale
Chorus
The Jazz
Concerto
Conductor
Crescendo

Dolce – Sweetly
Encore "Again"; an audience request that the performer(s) repeat a piece or perform another
Forte - The Italian term for "loud", indicated in the musical score by the marking "f"
fortissimo - The Italian term for "very loud", indicated in the musical score by the marking "ff"
The Axiom "Note" …as in musical….
Musique
Overture
Refrain
- Text or music that is repeated within a larger form
Requiem

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/05/07 02:37 PM

For a stand alone:
elegant: of high grade or quality
eloquent: marked by forceful and fluent expression

Both represent the new amp, so combined we have:
Axiom Elequant Digital Amp ED14.8
Axiom Elogant Digital Amp ED14.8

For a series:
elegance: refined grace or dignified propriety
eloquence: the quality of forceful and persuasive expressiveness

Combined:
Axiom Elequance Digital Amp Series (ED14.8 this model)
Axiom Elogance Digital Amp Series (ED14.8 this model)

Elegant and elegance obviously refer to its clean, minimalistic yet stalwart styling while eloquent and eloquence refer to the the way it provides its smooth, clean unrelenting power.

Not to clutter up the thread or anything, but every since this amp was first announced I have been thinking "dang, that's expensive, they could make it a lot more affordable if only they..."

... but after months of occasional deep thoughts I really believe the Axiom folks are on the right track with this amp. Every year we see relatively more energy going to the surrounds, and the old "just put a power amp on the mains and center" idea gets a bit less appropriate.

Wait... I have a vision... yes, I see one of those Native American names like "Amp who Never Shut Down when Randy Demo for Friends".

Maybe not.

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/07/07 10:00 AM

tmoyak,

I wondered how long it would take before thoughts surfaced of how to take the power beyond the 1.4 kilo-watts that one of these amps can output. I know I have been considering this as well.

The best way to utilize the power of more than one of these amplifiers is to divide up the channels between them (i.e. one for the 4 surrounds and one for the 3 front channels). Since each amp module can pass the entire power output of the power supply there is no particular need to parallel or bridge them. You would want a separate 15 amp breaker for each amp though.

I have been thinking of trying 4 of them on my system (2 M80s, 2 VP150s, 4 QS8s, and 3 EP600s); though at this juncture I am still enjoying the boost in power I got from removing all my mono blocks and putting in one of these new amps.

But if you wanted to max a system like mine with power the equation would go as follows: your maximum possible power consumed at each speaker (determined by the impedance of your speakers), times the number of channels you have, divided by 1,400. For myself that works out pretty much to be: 700 watts x 8 = 5,600 watts / 1,400 = 4 amps. This of course would mean a stereo version of the amp would make more sense and we will be sure to have one available.

Doing all this would only matter of course if there was maximum demand from multiple channels all at once since the limiting factor with one amp is not the power available to each channel but rather the overall power available to all channels all at once.

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/07/07 05:38 PM

I wanted to think of single name that had meaning, coherency, and "holding power". A name that could hold its own and didn't sound too cliched. (i.e. something like the "Dominator 8000")

What comes to mind with Axiom's new amp?

  • Power
  • Transcendence between channels (Many watts split up over channels effortlessly)
  • A clean, new look
  • Something futuristic (new digital amp)
  • Uniqueness
  • Something that holds its own..sounds different from the pack
  • A huge amount (or number) of power.
  • Something that sounds like it elegantly and effortlessly provides its power

I came up with the...


Axiom Myriad


The definition of Myriad is something of "vast diversity or number." It also has a archaic connection to the number 10,000. While 1kw isn't quite 10 kw, it certainly is in the neighborhood.

When I think of Myriad, the first thing I think of is that it's a unique word that isn't used *much*. Also along with it, it portrays something that holds its own - I could imagine a famous warship being called the Myriad. It's elegant but isn't too over the top. It also sounds a little mysterious, as if it is magic in how it performs its amplification duties.

To some it up, the Axiom Myriad elegantly provides a vast amount of 1400 watts over 8 channels.

I figured that since some people wrote paragraphs of name suggestions, I would write paragraphs about my one name suggestion. :-)

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/08/07 12:18 PM

Here goes another paragraph.

I wanted a name that lent itself to the unique properties of the new Axiom amp in how it could automatically switch from 1, 2, 3, 4, or up to eight channels, but the name would also suggest something that still remains "one", as suggested earlier.

Having a "big and brawn" name doesn't really illustrate how the Axiom amp is different. Lots of amps out there are super powerful and there are other multi-channel amps out there too.

At first I came up with the Axiom Octagon, but that limited the amp to just producing eight channels.

So...


The Axiom Polygon

Sounds powerful, yet it suggests one shape that isn't defined - that can be several geometric shapes and yet still be one shape. That's just what the axiom amp can do, it can effortlessly switch from one channel up to eight channels.

I think axiom needs a name that immediately makes people realize how the amp is different - that it isn't just another "powerful" amp. It's an amp that can dynamically amplify multiple channels. I think the "Polygon" is it...or the Myriad.

Hey, I have dibs on A8

I just remembered that Axiom may have already used the A names for an early speaker line. I know they had AX1 etc, not sure about A1.

AA1 and AA8 would be safe, but they don't sound so good.

Not sure if anyone has suggested anything around "Omni", but that was the closest I could think of to describe the way the amp can push power out to any channel to a greater extent than anything on the market today.

Ajax

something related, like EQ (for Earthquake, or Equilibrium, or Equation, or whatever), or something similar might work. If there will be more amps in the line with different power, then EQ1400 would

define this product. If there will be more models with a different number of channels (2, or 3, or 5), then EQ8 would be descriptive. If there would be amps with differing power and channels, then use

EQ1400-8.

Alternative ideas:

Axiom Excalibur

Extreme - EX1400-8, etc.
The Axiom "Xterminator" or "X-terminator, or "Xtreme"? - XT1400-8

As an example, all of your suggestions stand a chance because you were the first to post those suggestions.

I am in no way indicating that my compiled list is being used in the selection process, it is very possible that I may have cut and pasted incorrectly some where.

They are the black things at the top. XLR inputs. I would imagine the production version will have RCA's though since XLR isint exactly standard equipment on most gear. Although many of the higher end stuff does have it, and if your buying this amp I imagine your buying a higher end processor as well.

yeh, forgot that part that I was thinking XLR output to an Amp. or well like a sub input ....my P/A system for the band uses xlr in and outs from the mixer and my speakers are all powered so they accept xlr or 1/4, guess I was off in neverland
I was thinking about my amp and it uses fibre Optics, digital and RCA inputs. But there is the question, I want to buy an external amp and use my Denon as a pre/pro, but I wouldn't be able to do that with this amp.

Posted by: ctk

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/09/07 11:29 PM

With those combo XLR-1/4inch inputs it is possible to connect the RCA pre-outs on standard Home AV receivers. You just create an unbalanced RCA to 1/4-inch cable. Since the distance between your receiver and amp is so short, the unbalanced cable will be a fine alternative to a balanced cable.
Posted by: vassillios

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/10/07 07:20 AM

Is there a reason why there isn't a digital in (optic or coax)? It seems to me that if you have a digital out from your preamp, you could have a digital in on your amp. This way, the signal could stay all digital....but of course then the digital signal would have to be converted to analog within the amp.

So I guess the next big step for axiom is to speakers with digital inputs and an amp with digital inputs and outputs.

or.....

An amp with wireless capabilities and speakers with wireless capabilities.

or....

An amp with an ethernet port that will allow you to hook it up to a wireless router which will allow you to transmit the signal to your wireless speakers.

The future is bright!
Posted by: danmagicman7

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/10/07 08:09 AM

I believe the digital out and coaxial out on preamps (really just receivers) are just used to split the signal to other systems (like recording devices) if necessary. The digital out isn't a processed signal at all in most cases. On my MP3 player I have an optical in for recording purposes.

So, if you had a digital in on an amp...and all the receiver was doing was passing the digital signal from the source to the amp, there wouldn't be a lot of point in even having a receiver.

Also, a "digital" signal can be DTS, Dolby Digital, PCM 2-channel audio, or another digital format, so the amp would have to start doing the receiver's job.

Didn't mean to stomp on your parade...your other ideas would be nice for receivers.
Posted by: vassillios

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/10/07 08:16 AM

Actually, my point was to have the pre amp do the processing job and pass the signal digitally (5-8 channels post processing) on to the AMP for distribution to the speakers.

I realize that right now this probably can't be done, but if, hint hint, axiom were to produce their own preamp, they could enginner it this way incorporating an ADAT protocal over the toslink or coax cable..no?
Posted by: dllewel

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/10/07 09:34 AM

The speaker output from the amplifier is an analog signal so that is all that is needed. All receivers and pre-processors process the source input (DVD) digitally and apply bass management, level adjustment, and delay times, then the signal is converted to analog before being fed to the receiver's amplifier segment.

Pro amplifiers do not have digital inputs because that is the job of the pre-processor, not the amplifier. Since the signal gets sent to the speakers in analog anyway, this step is unavoidable.

Wow, I did not realize my posts are converted to Latin

I realize whose job is whose. My questions are mostly "what ifs", my point is that it would be cool IF you could feed all the channels, with 1 cable, from the pre to the amp. Doing this, it would then be the job of the amp to convert the processed signal from digital to analog. I seem to recall a lot of talk about this being a digital amplifier, so why then is it fed an analog signal? If it's a digital amp, is the analog signal converted to digital to do what needs to be done then converted back to analog for output to the speakers? If so, seems like a lot of unneccessary conversion.

Again these are "What ifs" seeing as how I really don't know what goes under the hood of the amp.

No offense, but isn't the correct term 1/4" TRS jack? I thought phono referred to an RCA jack.

Again no offense, I'm trying to make sure I understand because those XLR jacks look like the TRS/XLR combo jacks

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/10/07 12:40 PM

1/4"
can be a few things....the TRS Tip-Ring-Sleeve or Balanced
or Unbalanced which is TS - Tip-Sleeve.
Also 1/4" stereo TRS.
I know I will be corrected here, but with under 20 ft of a 1/4" run and being mono channels, it is quite possible to run an unbalanced 1/4" between the Pre/Pro and the amp. No need for a TRS. But as pointed out an adapter is given. but if you have the AMp seprated from the Pre?pro more than 20 ft then chances are you will run a TRS or Balanced 1/4".

I haven't been this nervous/excited for a long time. I'm still not an axiom family member yet, but my plan is to replace all my speakers with axiom gear. My first purchase will be the QS8's but the wife said not until December (seeing as how I just spent $2500 upgrading my TV and receiver), unless I can pull a miracle out of my butt and save up for them...i'm hoping this contest is going to be my miracle.

Everyone was quite astute to pick up on this one. The correct term I should have used is a ¼” phone jack since they are not balanced. If you wished to use a balanced input then the XLR jack is balanced. The phono jack is the RCA side of the adaptor, so the adaptor is a 90 degree ¼” phone to RCA phono. A ¼” TRS is usually designated to a balanced input and a ¼” stereo phone jack is usually designated for an unbalanced 2 channel application.

The Agony of Choosing was much worse. We couldn't agree on one selection (or even two or even three). We ended up taking your suggestions together, and coming up with the A1400-8.

Since several of you were really close, we're dividing up the gift certificate to the names we felt were the very closest:

$100 - Hutzal - for the ADA-8
$100 - Ajax - for the AC1400
$100 - Wid - for the AD1400
$100 - Bridgman - for the A8
$100 - Real80sman - for the DA1400/DA8 Hybrid

We really want to thank everyone who entered! Another contest coming very shortly!

I guess "elegant" names weren't what Axiom had in mind (things that really personally named the amp). The naming scheme is more something that opens up the possibility of more amps.

It's a nice, simple name. Congrats to the winners!

Woo hoo !!

Not only did I win (and yes, one could argue that insider information was used ), the numbering scheme hints strongly at a family of amplifiers.

I'm glad I held off on adding a power amp, although I still miss my old Marantz power amp with the nice meters. It's not clear that having a rack of power meters would really add anything to the home theater experience but it's nice to think about.

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/12/07 09:36 AM

oh wow! This is a pleasant morning read...thanks for the gift Axiom!

I am pleased that I could be apart of the naming scheme for the new super powerful axiom amp.

I agree that a numbered scheme should be used as well. I like the name very much and the great thing about it is that it can be very easily adapted to other amps in the family.

(Perhaps, an A525-3? useful for 2 channel listening because of the amps design to utilize the full power on 2 channels, or for those that have a 5.1 system requiring a separate for the centre channel and mains it could be very usefull...) I can dare to dream...

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/12/07 10:24 AM

I see what's going on. For such a high-end amp, Axiom is following the high-end naming trends of automobiles. The model names/numbers of most high-end cars look like an alphabet soup:

Mercedes S600, SLK, etc
BMW 545i, Z4, etc
Audi A8, TT, etc
Porsche 911
Acura RL, TL, CL etc
Lexus LS460
Infiniti G35

Contrast this with the low-to-moderate priced end of the spectrum, where most everything has a more traditional model name, even if it's made up: e.g. Corolla, Sentra, Fusion, Durango ...

So while the amp's name is not at all sexy or interesting, it will psychologically have some serious cachet that makes one take it seriously...

Re: Axiom Amp Naming Contest - 04/12/07 12:20 PM

Hmm, as a consumer i personally prefer more standard, marketing titles with a possible numerical indicator for further revisions down the line. The Axiom Millenium series speakers worked fine for this, even shortening the Millenium to just the M. With increasing numbers comes a larger speaker (the M3 being an exception).
M3
M22
M40, 50, 60, 80 then eventually the v2 was added.
Easy enough for someone to figure out at a glance the general size of speakers in the model lineup and the Millenium title works for me.
Axiom Millenium 60s.
Nice ring to it.
But driven by the Axiom A1400 dash 8 amp?
Uggh.

I've never been a fan of these obscure alphanumeric naming systems which inevitably change over time and consumers are left figuring out how to decipher them.
Has anyone reviewed the nvidia video card brand X with the suffix 7600GT or how its predecessor the 7300GT was different, let alone the 4-6 variations in between? 7600GT KO, 7600GTS, 7600GS OC, 760GTX (and of course exchange all the 7600 for a 7200, 7400, 7800...)?
You have to figure out the naming code.
Some video cards really started getting crazy long names with only a two letter designation determining some minute difference between them. This makes for a consumer headache.
What if the next nvidia chipset is the VX and they do not want to continue the 8800 series up into the 10,000 numerical naming realm?
Then the next nvidia card might be the VX1200. Well then consumers now have to figure out if the VX1200 is an older or a newer card than the 8800GTX.

The A1400-8.
First questions at a glance by a new consumer, is the 8 the # of channels or the version?
What is the 1400? Is that a revision number?
Maybe later revisions would be the A1500 and the 1600 series.

What if a version #2 comes out?
A1400-8.2?
So does that mean it powers an 8.2 system?
Newbies won't have a clue.
Or then A1400-8v2?
And if the wattage changes for a design idea or to sell a slightly cheaper version?
A800-5?

Right back to requiring a decipher again.

Sometimes simplicity is best for marketing and alphanumerics only increase in complexity with time.
The Axiom Boulder and the Axiom Pebble, designating a larger or a smaller amp.
Simple enough and sounds alot sexier than a string of variables.
That's my five cents.

Bah.
It all hurts the head after awhile. Maybe medic8r has something for me.
Send me a prescription and i'll have it filled up here. It's cheaper.
