Well, yeah. I consider myself to be a prosumer of recording technology. I have a TLM103 and C414 (plus a few others, but those are my vocal mics) and know how to use them properly. So, for me, this becomes more of an issue of access to equipment I would never be able to afford otherwise. However, I do agree with your sentiment that good recording doesn't (necessarily) come from good equipment on its own.
Of course, I could do what my good friend Rob Anderson (in my Facebook network for those of you here who are also): he bought a used U47. (Then again, on location recording is how he pays the bills so he knows how to avoid buying a used U47 because there's something wrong with it.)
