So every studio should own 100+ consoles, run cubase, protools, logic, dp, sonar etc... and have at least 20 rooms of varying sizes with interchangable lighting, ceiling height etc...
Umm - nope. That would be at least equally silly.
Actually it might be sillier.
Three of the many things you can do wrong:
1. Not enough choices (eg only dynamic mics)
2. Too many choices (eg everything under the Sun)
3. The wrong
I'm afraid there are a lot of ways to be silly, and several ways to be sillier than silly. You seem to have managed to hit upon more than one of them in this thread.
Meanwhile, there are only a limited number of ways to run a successful studio, and while it's essential, "silliness" (of a very specific nature, perhaps) is only a relatively small part of the formula.
