Cor, who'd have thought its been 30 years since the original Fairlight II was introduced? The harbinger of many classic 80's records from the big shots of the time, its become an icon of sampling creativity. back in the day, it was £50,000 UK which was a LOT of cash, hence it was only  plaything the few.

Now you can buy it again, Fiarlight have re-issued using up to dat hardware with a higher voice count, LED display, still with the green on blacck look and the stylus., but with more of everything else, storage etc.

You can order yours now, its $20k AUS US, which is a considerable chunk, though as Peter says when you take inflation into the equation, its a lot less than the original in real terms etc.

Its the sort of thing you'd say, if you have to ask how much, then you cant afford it.
