    My Monitor Golds cost me 160$ each in '72 ( Have the receipt)
    I was earning 700$ month then at my average starter job.
    My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
    Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.

    One of THE BEST Mixing Desks you can buy is Allen & Heath.
    The top ( analogue desk, of course ) was 420 in 1978.

    You can buy a vastly superior Mixing Desk ( digital, of course) from A & H for approx. 1,320 in
    2017.
    I'd take the 1978 analogue desk over the modern one all day long....

TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Interesting... Seemingly prices were V similar in relation/proportion to average wages as they are currently.
