Take some photos and place them on a no reserve auction starting for $1, and in about a week you will have a pretty good idea of their value.

Yes, Use Audiogon bluebook. THEN, to be safe, subtract 25 %!
It seems to be a buyers market out there. I've rarely gotten the bluebook when selling unless it's a high demand item. If a company is out of business, it can dramatically affect the value in spite of what the blue book says. I own Snell Type A V5's. They won't fetch half of what Audiogon says they're worth. This is as fickle a hobby as any. If you accept this principle, you'll sleep easier. Joe
It is a tough economy for used audio values.... trust me, I just practically gave away some great gear that wasn't all that old. Unfortunately the bottom feeders on fleabay have pushed prices to an all time low. I try to think about the enjoyment some really high quality gear can provide rather than worry about the resale, if I buy it right in the first place and sell it fairly then I got my money's worth. I am trying to sell a great pair of speakers for 40% of what they cost and no bites... I am almost inclined to keep them rather than give them away. I'm also trying to sell an amp that was $3700 new, I can't give it away at $600. It's not like it was a few years ago when people had play money. my Rega P3 sold right away , go figure....
