Sure you could go used. The point I wanted to make is that some Reviewers are promoting budget products which is misleading. Maybe you could find a better lower priced equipment now due to technical advances. But still somewhere in the audio chain you'll have to spend big bucks to achieve High Fidelity over Mid-Fi.Yes, one could do it with a headphone setup for a lot less. But I'm talking loudspeakers setup for this thread.
All it takes is just one measly bitcoin and a lot of listening to components.NB

ahhhh, the audiophile / reviewer community has already gotten into your head with that statement !The majority of them love to throw those two terms around(mid-fi and high end/fidelity) if no other reason than ego, snobbism.
Nevertheless, how else are we gonna communicate if we don't use terms like mid-fi and hi-fi???
It simply means that some components are better than others and we use two broad categories to separate them.
If one reads the Cheap & Cheerful circle a musically satisfying system can be had for $1,000, everything else is a dick measuring contest.
That may be going a bit far, in both the budget and the metaphor, but I maintain that a musically satisfying experience can be had for way less than $50K. First place to spend is in the transducers (speakers, and phono cart if running a TT), first place to save is cabling. IME the impact of cabling is overstated at best, simple placebo effect at worst, unless the cables in question have bizarre electrical characteristics causing interactions with connected components, as some do. In any event, I think that in virtually all cases, cutting the cabling budget and raising the room acoustics budget will provide much more benefit in terms of SQ.
Ummmm..., yeah. An important aspect of this hobby is snobbery. Who's system is better than nearly everyone else's? If you answered, "Mine," then you're an audiophile. We're also fully aware that 99% of audio terms are meaningless (or subjective, at best). Nevertheless, how else are we gonna communicate if we don't use terms like mid-fi and hi-fi??? It simply means that some components are better than others and we use two broad categories to separate them.
Many guys on this forum, for example, can take $20K and make a system sound like it costs a million bucks. Guys with deep pockets and who don't know audio can spend $100,000 and it will sound like crap, but it will look impressive. There's a zillion images all over the Internet of guys with $50,000 speakers positioned 3 inches from the wall.
It is easy to build a system that can play music but very difficult to build a system that is musical.
