    How far back should I go in the cost calculation? That Tascam four track seemed expensive when I bought it in 1983.

    The only two answers I can come up with are (1) too much and (2) $1,500 on those Adam A7x monitors from the other thread.

    Oh, man! That would probably take forever and the total might scare people, including me.

    Now, let me see...I guess I'd have to start by defining recording equipment. Does a guitar count because I know I spent $475 on that Martin D-18 in 1976. Then I bought a gold top Les Paul...

    And last week it was those Adam monitors

    go back long enough and most of us spent a lot more than we really should have

    After studying this since the early 1970's, I've determined that the act of buying is a form of entertainment and that we are all women.

    interesting viewpoint

    many people think that buying just one more item will fix all their problems and make their music great
