As technology has advanced, the definition of "recording equipment" has subtly changed. Where it used to be a simple list of microphones, mic preamps, mixer, tape machines and reference monitors, with perhaps some outboard gear like compressor/limiters and reverb/delay units, today it can be as simple as a keyboard workstation with sampling capability or as complex as a full-blown Pro Tools HD system with automated console and thousands of plug-ins to handle virtually any audio task. It all depends on just what it is you need to do.
A simple home recording studio can be a desktop all-in-one studio—the modern equivalent of the cassette multi-track units that were once omnipresent in musicians' spare rooms, or a compact, computer-based setup with a small multi-channel interface and a small mic locker with a variety of studio-quality microphones. Home studios tend to be a "one or two tracks at a time" type of setup, but are easily expandable, and as you add gear and capability, upgrading to a larger mixer, more mics, more signal processing or more plug-ins and computer power, you may find that you've stepped over the somewhat blurry line to morph your home studio into a project studio.
