Counterpoint 3.1 Preamp question

Should I have my Counterpoint 3.1 preamp reconditioned before I sell or sell as is. Current condition: The volume and one balance control have noise in them. Several of the RCA inputs are getting worn out. Tubes need to be replaced. The unit is currently not in use. I am using my Anthem AVM 20 for home theater and 2 channel audio. It is paired with a Sumo Polaris and a Rotel amplifier. I would be interested in any input. Thanks
If it were me, I would do as much of the recondition myself as I could. The knobs can be removed with an allen wrench, then get some spray contact cleaner in there. Buy the tubes, and replace them, then, think about keeping it. I have a 7.1 pre myself that I can't bear to part with. It has a wonderful phono section, and I still swap mine with my ARC SP 9 MKII. Counterpoint preamps were great products, and complete upgrades are still available from Michael at Alta Vista. You never know, you may decide to split out your HT and 2 channel systems. If you do as much of the fixup yourself as you can, you'll have a good-to-go preamp already.
Thanks for the input. I have taken the knobs off and tried cleaning them with contact cleaner. I think the controls may have pits in them. What do you think I could get for the unit as is or reconditoned?
I've seen 7s going for 250-300 in good shape, 5s for a little more. I would think that it would cost you as much to get it reconditioned as you could sell it for. Check and see how much it might cost for new controls and jacks first though. Your best bet might be a sale as is.
Thanks for the info. Sounds like your first suggestion is the wise one. Keep.
Good choice. I was gonna say: "sell it to me", but the LAST thing I need is another piece of gear in the house.
It's been my experience that a LOT of Counterpoint gear is really starting to fall apart at this point in time. As was mentioned, it would cost as much or more to have it refurbed than what you could get out of it. As such, i would suggest using this as a test-bed to practice your soldering, un-soldering and DIY skills. After all, you've got nothing to lose and you could end up repairing the unit yourself and saving yourself a LOT of money. Sean
