What would be the perfect name/title in your opinion for this special community here and abroad...everywhere where music lovers are walking this Earth and beyond (in space, by planes, private jets, by trains, by automobiles, by transit buses, metros, suspended tramways, bicycles, boats, jogging, walking, canoeing, skiing, [email protected] home in front of the télé, computer screen, dedicated hi-fi stereo room, surround sound system setup, SSSS, ...)?

I am indifferent to the name, be it Computer Audiophile or Audiophile Style.  It is just a name.  If the owner of the forum cannot choose the name for his forum, then why should the members are allowed to choose his/her own user name.  Is it a double standard again?

Audio forums are like computers; they do require updates once in a while, and a new refresh start in safe mode. 

 

Audiophiles are sound explorers; they test new gear, new cables, new electric junction boxes, new fuses, tubes, tweaks, fine-tuning and asimuth adjustment, proper balance level, volume control, acoustic room treatments, power chords, etc. 

Some are even music collectors (tapes, LPs, CDs), others expand their music server library. We keep buying the same album (DSOTM) over and over to get the best version (multichannel) and the best format (tape). ...Even the best pressing (LP from Germany and Japan). 

 

Computer audiophiles are not material physical people; they are interactive cyber space audiophiles with a spiritual audio philosophy (DAC implementation and FLAC). 

 

Computer audiophiles encompasse digital audio.

Style audiophiles encompasse both digital and analog audio.

 

It's not black & white because computer audiophiles (some) use CD/SACD HYBRID Universel 4K Blu-ray players (Pure Audio BR format included).

Plus, computer audiophiles (some) use a screen display to view and listen to music video concerts recorded live (ballets, operas, symphonies, rock concerts, amphitheater shows, cathedral/church chorales and organs). ...Bach, Beethoven, Botticelli and all...even Coltrane, Davis and Amadeus.

Maybe this is better something like a gold color.   Either that or why not have it flash rapidly between this and red.  That way it would be even more noticeable as an eyesore. 

 

Of course when it was CA having the unfilled CA was a nice touch at the end.  So maybe it needs a name change too.

I think that we should embrace the success passion associated to MQA as well as attract new generations of audiophiles.

 

I wherefore suggest a name change of this site to the more contemporary sounding: Millennial Quality Audiophiles

I admit MQA may not be super attractive after all, but what about:

  • Splendid Audio - SA
  • Splendid Audio Sense - SAS
  • Audiophile Insight  - AI

The desire to impose rationality, to make people or society more rational, mutates, as a rule, into spectacular outbursts of irrationality. It either triggers romantic irrationalism as a reaction, or it induces in its most ardent promoters the incoherent idea that rationality is something that may be imposed by force or by the rule of the enlightened few over the benighted masses.

Audiophiles are people who love music.  The rest you describe can generate a lot of noise.
