That search engine ends in 2011 so I cannot see how it provided this 
data on the last 6 months. It is now 2014.

I do not find synth pricing to be in any way irrelevant. I remember you 
being upset at the SH-101 price thread.

This is very relevant to manufacturers of new and modifiers of old 
synthesizers. As older synths start to fetch decent prices it gives 
manufacturers a very good picture of where they can safely hit.

Novation Bass Station? Arturia MiniBrute? Moog Sub Phatty? Doepfer Dark 
Energy?

Would any of these things exist if no one wanted to pay more than $15 
for a synth?

This is a topic that is always relevent as far as I am concerned.

How many shekels gets me how much synthesizer....

Are you paying by the kilobyte for your data connection or something?

Price posts are not a waste of my time.
