Yes, "The High End" is a marketing segment created by peddlers, not engineers or scientists

"The High End" is a marketing category. It is entirely possible that HP was very important in the creation of this marketing segment.

It is questionable whether the quality of music that most of us listen to is better because of the existence of this marketing segment. It is entirely possible that without this artificial market segmentation the overall quality of run of the mill equipment (previously called Hi-Fi, now called mid-fi) would be better. And well before this artificial marketing segmentation there were niche products that were priced out of the range of all but a fraction of audiophiles.
