High Fidelity is when the reproduction as to what hits your ears is as close as possible to the real thing.
Finding that is like winning the lottery. Since nothing reproduced will sound absolutely like the real thing, I guess we are all still trying to find that winning ticket.

Probably 10K? Which would be reasonable in my view given a small company.

To know High End, one must know all about Low End and Mid End too.
To truly understand about Hi-Fi, one needs to have experienced with Low-Fi and Mid-Fi.
The rest is just the details.

Let's consider two mail order brides.
Potential wife #1 costs $1,000 and is a faithful companion in every way except that she will always be on the lookout for something better. She definitely won't cheat but she will flirt with other men and she will drop hints that she can be "taken away" for the right price.
Potential wife #2 costs $10,000 and is a faithful companion in every way. She will be focused on her husband, home and work. The thought of even flirting with another man, even in jest, would never enter her mind.
Both women are very attractive physically, and both graduated from nursing school. Also assume that the women are equally desirable with regard to family background and personality compatibility. Potential wife #2 is just a little better looking than #1.
Which potential wife is "high end" and why?
