What a great quote.
Any gear that does what it is suppose to and helping to produce the sound you want without degrading the signal is high-end. Givin' the fact that you know what you want.
So the most important things you need is a 'high-end' trained ears and a 'high-end' decision making brain to choose the right gear for the right job!
For me I look hi end for me. I want the best I can get for the job at hand.
I expect a high end piece of gear to be excellent quality and do what it is intended to do or what I expect of it.
But that aside it goes beyond the gear itself. I expect the company to offer excellent service and stand behind the gear, if they don't i'll find another that will. I am tired of crap service from some companies just because of a name.
And price is not nor should it be a marker for high end or quality.
Dynamic mic and by definition would include ribbon can be very high end quality, and very affordable.
I once commented, you can record the sound of a fart with just about anything and it will sound like a fart, but if you use quality high end gear you'll not just hear it, you'll smell it!
Pan60: I wouldn't put my Neumann near someone's fartin' ass..it may capture the fart but the smell may linger to the next project...
