The term “professional” means something different to just about everybody and everything. A “professional athlete” is classified as someone who plays a sport and is paid for it as opposed to those who play for recreation. A “sales professional” is someone employed in the business of selling and is seemingly at the top of their game. A doctor is considered to be a “professional”, and so is a lawyer. Professional audio/video equipment is considered to be of a higher quality than traditional consumer grades, even though the term “higher quality” is never mentioned. The biggest myth regarding professional audio/video equipment is that it’s not affordable to the average shopper. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
If you’re into recording audio, professional audio equipment will alleviate the annoying “hiss” that’s sure to come through and make any tape or disc next to useless for any public play. When watching a personally recorded video, you’ll notice a dramatic difference in both picture quality and clarity. And the price difference between the consumer and professional grades is not even close to what you’re thinking. In fact, you’re sure to be pleasantly surprised.
