View Full Version : struggling to find the right prices

I live in Windsor, Ontario, Canada and I'm trying to sell all my audio equipment but it's very hard since I can't seem to find their current pricing as used items. They used to be for my family entertainment for roughly three years (bought in 2000) but I now live on my own and no longer have time and space for watching movies. I'm glad all of the gears still have pretty good ratings and I'm curioius if anyone wants to buy them. If so, I would prefer you actually come over to my place and make sure everything looks and performs as expected. Please leave your comments on the reasonable price of each component. I would certainly use your help in selling them as soon as I can. I've included brief specs on the receiver and 704 loudspeakers but detailed review can be found in the link at the very bottom of this message. Thank you in advance for your kindness.

As a general rule I would take the list price and cut it in half. I apply this to most used things but this does not apply to cars, houses and certain other things, to bad eh. You can also check out Audiogon and Ebay to get an idea.

Good Luck
