best way to sell???


hi, i am new to this site and community. my grandfather recently passed away and he had a conrad johnson ct6 preamp sitting in his closet new and unused. so i learned this site would be best place to reach out and sell the unit. i just dont want to get ripped off. just looking for some pointers to make sure trans. goes smoothly... any advice anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,
The first thing you need to do is to test the unit to make sure it is in good working condition.
Next, find out what they go for used on audiogon blue book etc.
Rate the condition, see audiogon's rating system guidelines.
Best only to use paypal for payments. When the money reaches your account in paypal ,send off the item , fed ex, and give the buyer the tracking info. I usually have them sign for it as well.
There are thousands and thousands of transactions on here.
Best of luck to you.

imo...don't sell it. you'll regret it someday.
Audiogon is THE site to sell high end audio, hands down. It's very well managed and works!! Yes I agree with all of Todd's input. Well done. I would add that you should post several photos of the unit showing its front, rear panel, etc. Be totally honest in your ad and flexible in your price. Yes I agree Paypal is the easiest and most convenient payment option, secure too. Ship the unit out right away and pack it well, insure it for its value as well. Following these recommendations will result in a good reputation for yourself on Audiogon. Be sure to request feedback from your buyer too after the transaction is completed.
If you list it here don't put buy-it option only make-offer option. You will want to screen the potential buyers. Also, since you are new with no feedback or/and forum participation, be prepared to accept a little less except perhaps if this particular model is in high demand. And pack really well, it should be able to withstand at least 6 feet drop without any damage. Insure for full value of course and keep all the papers. Talk to the buyer before finalising the transaction, on the phone or through e-mails. Generally, Audiogon is a good place to buy and sell hi-fi but sometimes shit does happen.
You said it was brand new and unused. If it was the original seal, I would not have open the box. You advertise it as such and as oppose to claiming new with a resealed box, especially with no feedback.
Wait till someone else is selling the same item you want to sell and undercut them.

.....and offer free shipping and no PP fees !!!!!!
Since they have changed web site its not a good idea to use it.Traffic is very low and fees are outrageous right now ,hold on on to your equipment for now.
Tpreaves. Mine are not the same as the ones listed. You can't charge for paypal on ebay, so some people are fooled by ebay to add it into the selling price. All that does is give ebay a higher final sales value. If you think the other speakers are a better deal, get them. I can't find any near what I'm asking. Happy listening.

What the heck are you talking about Polk432?
Tpreaves, sorry, I thought you didn't approve of my listing. I'm not charging shipping or paypal fees to help out the buyer, in fact if the buyer pays with a money order, I'll knock off what I would have paid paypal. See Lipinski speakers. Happy listening.
