You are evaluating two different sound mixers. The Jazzmaster costs $45,000, has a three-year life, and costs $5,000 per year to operate. The Discmaster costs $65,000, has a five-year life, and costs $4,000 to operate. The relevant discount rate is 12%. Ignoring depreciation and taxes, compute the EAC for both. Which do you prefer?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 3, 2020, 9:54 pm ad1c9bdddf
To use this method, calculate the PV of each machine at date 0, and express the calculated PV as annuity equivalent for the machine's life time.
EAC is the PV of a single cycle ...
