Any chance the Bob would be cool with using his name in the store's name?  'Carver Audio of Pittsburgh' or 'Bob Carver Audio of Pittsburgh'?

I think Vintage Hi Fi has a good reputation already, so I would simply go with "Vintage Hi-Fi (and the best of today)".

Call it "Anders' Basement".  >:D

Yep, and the catch phrase could be "We got at least one of almost anything".

Three Rivers HiFi - New & Vintage
Expert Sales - Service - Upgrades

I think this is the best suggestion so far, I especially like the "New and Vintage" and the "Expert Sales - Service - Upgrades".

For the name I might suggest Pittsburgh (or three rivers or north hills) Audio Solutions.

UNCLE TOM'S
(It's a stereo shop)
I am confident that an SL-1200 is capable of outperforming turntables of much higher expense with minor modification.

"So, Bob works there?"

"No."

"Oh. So he owns the place?"

"No."

"Oh. Is he affiliated?"

"No."

If you are going to name it after someone who has nothing vested in the business, go bigger.
