Congrats and best of luck with the new improved AS.

 

Other names? Audiophile Way AW, If you rebranded as "cranky audiophile" you could have kept "CA" as the initials. I think I would fail in marketing,lol. What about "Aware Audiophile", I went to my AA meeting......nah, Audio Style is just fine ūüėÄ

Last time I was at Magnolia AV inside Best Buy, they had laser-printed a little sign touting a product for "Audiofiles". And no they didn't mean tracks or files of any kind. Sigh.

Are you going to change your username to The Audiophile Stylist?

 

I meant to ask about that too.  

 

Just checked, and thank goodness all prior forum and article URLs starting with computer audiophile.com still work!

You guys crack me up! :P 

(Despite all other rancor around here, I can always enjoy a daily dose of audio wit and humor from your sharp tongues...)

I am not sure about the name, but I love the new fonts and/or layout. It seems easier to read and shows bold and italic better. Good job Chris!

Congrats on moving forward. Something had to be changed. The computer audio category is withering. Not excited by the name. Style means all the things mentioned. Unfortunately, people interpret style  differently, when coupled with audio. It won't kill the site, but is an opportunity lost.

 

Wish you all the luck.

A quick note on the new logo. 

 

I wasn’t happy with using an existing font and tweaking it a little bit. So, I had the new name Audiophile Style hand painted by an artist who used to hand paint NHRA dragsters back when all the graphics were real paint, not vinyl. We digitized the original hand painted artwork to create the one of a kind logo above.

Hoo Ray!  Death to the audio "computer"  I have never liked the computer part of computer audiophile......

 

 

Free at last, free at last.......

I agree  - I did not like being a 'Computer' only discussion website. As we know computer was never designed to be an audio source. The irony is Reel, Vinyl, CD which are specifically designed for audio where taboo. Good to see all sources are now up for discussion including computer as its finally becoming a true audiophile source.

Neat, now you can create the AS font and make $20 here or there?

Well done and all the best in 2019. 

 

Too bad that the term computer audio is pejorative for many. Hopefully they will change their mind by visitnig audiophilestyle

Apparently, much more so than the term "audiophile."

You missed an opportunity. If you had added "The" in front of Audiophile Style you would have had TAS!

 

I have a feeling it was a conscious choice not to do so. ¬¬

They are complementary pejoratives.

I was actually wondering about the title (Computer Audiophile) last week and how it may be limiting but this new name will certainly offer all the flexibility needed moving forward.

 

I can only imagine how much thought and discussion went into a name change.

Nice article Chris. Re-branding can be quite risky but your big-picture-forward-thinking will no doubt prove successful. Congrats and best of luck.
