Hello, I am not very tech savy and have two Snell E3 speakers from around the later 80's that I have to sell. They are large, wooden and in good shape. I cannot find the value, and am asking people here to give advice. I did go to a site that you paid for an appraisal, but declined. Last time I used them they sounded as awesome as ever, just perfect. If you could help, please do. Otherwise, thanks anyway and best to all. I live in tampa, florida.

These people do list a couple of Snell speakers, but not your model. Just search for "Snell".

I don't know if this is the site you spoke of that wanted a fee to show you a price, but they do show a Snell E3 in their "bluebook". I have used this site for years and they are legitimate and fair.

Otherwise undamaged used speakers are usually priced at 1/2 of new retail depending on age, less if they are over 8 years or so old.

Herman beat me to it. His advice was what I was going to say word for word. Also do a search on The Bay and see what Snell's have been going for or are going for.

Thank Yall so much !! These speakers still sound great, wanted to get some value out so I can buy a compact stereo set. In these times, I don't want to over price, but get something akin to their worth. THIS is why I come to this source, audiophiles like you who share your knowledge with people who aren't so tech savy. It helps, debnova (debbie).
