My vote goes to Audiophiliacs of KW


It denotes some type of addiction related to audio.


From the Urban Dictionary:

Audiophiliac
The name often given to severe audio enthusiasts. Made famous by Robert Bisek for the wide spectrum of audio he could hear.
**** was considered an audiophiliac. Jane was amazed that he could accurately discern analog from digital audio signals.


cheers,

Paul

Tri-City HiFi is the only name that doesn't denote some sort of "club". It sounds more like a store.
Maybe I'm anyalyzing it too much.....

If a new topic is started, you have the option to create a poll.....could be a good way to decide on the name?


Jon


Do you prefer Audiophiliacs of KW then?

I see your point about the store name

Thanks

Though I live in Kitchener, IMHO that name leaves out Cambridge just like the multiple decisions that see Cambridge lose out on multiple services as determined by Waterloo Regional council (small c intended), as KW only denotes Kitchener and Waterloo. I am sorry I don't have an alternative solution at this time

No kidding...we got the train, Cambridge got the high speed bus service but they continue to be nice enough to help pay for our trains...kidding!
What about Tri-City Audiophiliacs?

cheers,

Paul

Edit...I haven't figured out the formatting features here yet :)
