I'm a little late to the game, but not late enough, because according to my watch, it is 11:30pm in the Pacific time zone. I just so happen to be on vacation in beautiful Whistler, B.C. (That's in Canada, folks!) and I just logged on to see what I'd missed. So, please accept this humble submission:

Axiom Digital Brilliance Amplifier
(DB-8 for short)

The abreviation is, naturally, a play on that unit of measure of which we are all so fond. And brilliance, well, that's self-explanatory.


Another idea just occurred to me:

Axiom Neutron Amplifier

This amplifier is so densely packed with power that it probably affects the gravitational field around it, much like a neutron star would.

OK, in the interest of spreading my soon-to-come wealth, I'm willing to sell the rights to:

The Sturgeon/Pigeon Lake Combo

to the first person to send me $400...Visa, M/C and Amex accepted.

Why would I let it go so cheap? Well, I'm a giving guy and community-minded. It would, in all likelihood, give someone in this fine community the opportunity to come out $100 ahead.

And me? Well, I'll lose $100 off the value of the contest, but I'll still be able to sit a grandchild on my knee someday and tell them how the famous Axiom Sturgeon/Pigeon Lake Amp/Pre-pro Combo was named......

First come, first served.

actually the contest I think is in CDN $$$ and you want American, so that's $425 CDN.
Then we have to take the money out of our Canadian bank and give it to you, so you can put it in an American bank. And then that will lower our economy even more than it already is. Also, we are not to barter on this site I am sure SirQuack will say something about the regulations and rules of this site and I don't need him writing me up again ..... Oh wait, you two are like friends here ..... maybe he will let it slip

Good luck, but with the amount of names Varsillios ( not sure if it is Spelled right ) put in his chances are about at 80%, giving he has about 80% of the entries

and if you think, I am being serious with all this ....JustJoking around

Good luck to all there are alot of great names put forth

That is mighty generous of you. Are you sure you want to give up the rights and future monetary gains inherant with such a prestigious award?

true, but all my suggestions SUCK so I really have a very slight chance of winning.

and now i feel embarassed about all the entries I put in...I just couldn't help myself (that and I REALLY need a pair of QS8's and I can't afford then seeing as how I recently got a new HD TV and a new receiver)

I know.

There are some days that I feel particularly generous.... what can I say?

So....

Did you want to put that on your Visa, MasterCard or American Express?

Why feel embarrassed, there was no limit
and if it wasn't for me wanting to upgrade my 80's to the newer ones first and my son, I wouldn't of put in three or for posts either.
Look at it this way there is no difference in buying a hand full of 50/50 tickets to give you a better chance

Ok, so I compiled a list of all entries in cronological order. I tried to strip out all comments so all you see are names, including the obvious humorous ones (this list is for your enjoyment and not meant to be any kind of official list, it's just so you don't have to go back through all of the posts):

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.

I wonder if a top end fusion reactor amp will be called the Cumberland Series.....

*********************

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
Excellence
Extend
Extreme - EX1400-8, etc.
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)
