Original price of the Conrad Johnson PV-5


I'm doing some reviewing and it would be handy to compare the PV-5 I use, circa 1984, in 2015 dollars. Does anyone recall the original prices of the Conrad Johnson PV-5 and PV-8 preamps? Also, would anyone have a link or scan of reviews of these preamps?

According to a 1991 Orion bluebook I have, the PV-5 was manufactured from 1983 to 1988, and listed at $1485 during at least some of those years.

The PV-8 is indicated as having been manufactured from 1988 to 1990, and listed at $1685 during at least some of those years.

Here is a handy inflation calculator, provided by the USA Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, and based on the USA Consumer Price Index.
