I call all the remaining letters of the alphabet as prefixes for the numbers.

My gawd, you're nastier than the old time opera crowd, ha!!

Just like us today, it's amazing what they would do to find & keep the perfect sound. I kinda like tweaking better than surgery...

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.

Tom, in the "PA" Category, I was sure you'd go for "I".
