Contest: Naming the New Amplifier Line - 05/09/12 04:43 AM

Okay everyone, you’ve had time to get your best names ready for the Axiom Amps, I know it! As suggested by Ken in our last contest, this time around it’s a limit of three entries per person. (And since we’re all fine upstanding Axiomoes, we understand that that doesn’t mean create 27 new accounts on the Axiom Message Boards to get all your names entered!) Please take a minute to look over the amplifier pages to get a sense of the product, and then hit us with your best shot!

The 1000
The 1250
The 1500

The prize will be your choice of one pair of M3 Algonquin Outdoor Speakers, one pair of M3 Bookshelf Speakers, or Axiom Bucks in the amount of $368; whichever you prefer. Void where prohibited by law or the bounds of good taste.

Contest ends May 15th – hurry and get your one brilliant, golden, pithy jewel-of-an-entry in!

Re: Contest: Naming the New Amplifier Line - 05/09/12 06:13 AM

The Axiom Opus Series- Opus 1000, Opus 1250, etc. This one is Golden.

The Axiom Suite Series- Suite 1000, Suite 1250, etc. The double-Double entendre of this one makes it both Pithy AND Brilliant!

The Axiom Progression Series- Progression 1000, Progression 1250, etc. This one is a Jewel of an entry.

Axiom Standard 1000, 1250, 1500. Standard as in "The new standard" and/or "jazz standard"

I'm gonna resurrect the Epoch from my LFR suggestion, too. Goes well with Millennia: Epoch 1000, 1250, 1500.

Axiom Power 1000, 1250, 1500. Speaks for itself.

Axiom's new F1000, F1250, and F1500 amplifiers deliver the force you need to make your music and movies come alive.

You can add -# afterwards for the number of channels. Quicker to type and read "F1500-3" instead of "F1500 three channel."

Re: Contest: Naming the New Amplifier Line - 05/09/12 10:13 AM

First entry:

The RAmp Series:

R1000
R1250
R1500

This name is a play on words, using the following definition of 'ramp':

ramp: to increase, especially quickly or at a constant rate

----------------
Second entry:

The Foundation Series

F1000
F1250
F1500

foundation: 1 a body on which other parts rest or are overlaid; 2 an underlying basis or principle for something

EDIT: Hmmm, seems avjunkee snagged my letter! smile

Re: Contest: Naming the New Amplifier Line - 05/09/12 10:43 AM

Pulse Width Modulator or Pulse Wave Modulator

A came across a great definition. A technique for getting analog results within digital means.

PWM1000
PWM1250
PWM1500


I'm going to listen to my Axiom Omni-directional Linear Field Radiating speakers through my Pulse Wave Modulator amplifier.

This lineup of Class-D amplifiers aren't really geared towards the average audio/home theatre enthusiast. At the price points it is more reaching the high end market of power amplification.

Re: Contest: Naming the New Amplifier Line - 05/09/12 01:43 PM

I keep coming back to the theme of flexibility. I really like the name Digiflex, or DigiFlex, to summarize how it's a digital amp with the flexibility to send more or less power as needed for the situation/set-up. I see that Digiflex is a name brand of cables, though (in Canada, no less). Maybe you can strike a kind of deal with them, pointing out that there's also Digiflex cameras, flex fuel converters, ink jet printing systems, digital servo drives, and hand exercisers, just on the first page of Google results for "Digiflex". So, just in case:

DigiFlex 1000 amplifier
DigiFlex 1250 amplifier
DigiFlex 1500 amplifier

For my last entry it is a combination of the first two but adding its efficiency rating which I think is such a selling point.

CD90/PWM90-1000/1250/1500

The most efficient and powerful amplifier in home audio.

I have to say though Pulse Width/Wave Modulator and Linear Field Radiating in the same sentence is so badass.

DPA1000, DPA1250, etc. Digital Power Amp.

I know Ben already mentioned PA, but not everyone will know that it doesn't stand for "Power Amp" but for "Pine Acre".

I've always thought "Muskoka" is powerful and meaningful.

My only entry,

I like things named after their designer/engineer. So, AW for that. I noticed that the power levels on 5 channels went from 625W to 1225W to 1660W. Kind of a log scale, which you would expect from an amp. So, to keep it simple...

AW1
AW2
AW3

Keeping with the designer/engineer but paying homage to Axiom old school:

AW60

How about Axiom Principle Series Amplifiers
P1000-D
P1250-D
P1500-D
Or... Axiom Pure Principle Series Amplifiers
PP1000-D
PP1250-D
PP1500-D

A nice tie-in with the definition of Axiom:

1. a self-evident truth that requires no proof.
2. a universally accepted principle or rule.
3. Logic, Mathematics . a proposition that is assumed without proof for the sake of studying the consequences that follow from it.

Re: Contest: Naming the New Amplifier Line - 05/16/12 02:27 PM

I have four names that I'd like to throw into the hat.

1. Evidence
2. Premise
3. Reason
4. Truth (though I believe Behringer use this for a speaker line)

If I were to choose one, I'd submit "Evidence".

An axiom is a premise so evident that it is accepted as true, without controversy.

The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. Evidence, in this case, being the proof.

Besides, Axiom Evidence just rolls off the tongue nicely doesn't it?

Full disclosure - I won the outdoor M3 naming contest. I hope this does not disqualify me from this contest!

Good luck to all.
