What does the word audiogon even mean?

i get the AUDIO......but what about the GON


Remember when there was a Videogon? I watched a pair of Nestorovic 5AS speakers on that site for a couple of months wondering why the seller didn't list them on Audiogon instead. Finally, I bought them.

Our audiophile group calls itself The Audiofoos - amazing Wife Acceptance Factor.

Foos because we spend money on audio like a bunch of Foos.

Audiogon? Maybe because your money is soon gone?


Considering that Audiogon originated as a forum/chatroom with free classified ads I assume that the "GON" referred to different angles/opinions/thought.


But then, I'm simple.
