Sorry but I don't like "Style" at all and you could have chosen a better word. Anybody who looks at the name will think that the website is devoted to audio products for home decor and fashion accessories.

 

Yes if anybody that comes to visit can’t read then your argument would hold water.

Yes, though they're from a different email address, so I had to put in a new mail sorting rule to keep AS mail coming to the CA folder of my Inbox.

 

We will be forming a recovery/support Fakebook group.

If gear didn't look good I'd have to throw more money at it to justify my expectation bias. Styling saves me money 😋

Accuphase is the most beautiful.  Maybe it isn't Stylish?


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

Would it really make that much difference to you if he called it acme-tunes.com ?

 

It has been Audiophilestyle for awhile; it isn't going to change just because some people don't immediately fall in love with the name.

 

It would be expensive, disruptive, indecisive, and douchie to change the name yet again.  Get over it.

We had quality TV when I was a kid.

I liked it much better when everything went color from black and white.


And always keep in mind: Cognitive biases, like seeing optical illusions are a sign of a normally functioning brain. We all have them, it’s nothing to be ashamed about, but it is something that affects our objective evaluation of reality.

Not crazy about the name. I like The Modern Audiophile suggested by left channel. But I bet it was already taken.  The content is what matters though.

 

Maybe Modern High Fidelity.

 

Bits for Best Sound?

 

Eargasm in the 21st century? (With props to Duck Dodgers) 

 

The Modern Brain on High End Audio?

 

So now you know why I was never in marketing.

😋
