Check hifishark.com for used pricing. Doesn’t mean they sell at those prices but it gives you an idea of how to price. You'll need to get the model numbers to correctly ID the gear.

So I looked up one or two just to confirm what I thought.
What I would do, sell the Aragon amp. Might be able to get a couple hundred for it. Maybe. Whatever. Reason you sell it, a) its the only thing worth selling and b) its an odd duck. You have a receiver. So what do you need with a power amp? Nothing. Sell it.
Then hook up the rest, relax, and enjoy. Might as well. The alternative, posting, dealing with looky-loo's, packaging, shipping, guarantee by the time you are done you will not think it was worth anywhere near the hundred bucks or so you will clear.
Problem is a lot of that stuff, while perfectly good to listen to, for some guy to buy shipping is gonna eat up a lot of what they're willing to pay. So you go local. CraigsList. Fine. No packaging, no shipping, but what I said about looky-loos goes double.
Then again, if you really are that hard up for cash: craiglist. Don't ask for much. Expect even less.
Not meant to be a buzz kill but...
Don't hold your breath, thinking you're gonna double your money.
Original MSRP is insignificant. It's older 80's stuff, and not in league of iconic 60's Mcintosh/Marantz vintage gear. Audio gear even of what was considered great for the time, is now a boat anchor.
20%of MSRP if you're lucky.
It's good gear for what it is.... to simply enjoy.
Are you sure the CAL receiver isn’t a preamp/tuner that needs the power amp. Would make more sense. Sounds like a nice package I’d try to sell on CL. determine a fair price, but be ready to say no to low ball offers.
But if it were me I'd hook it up and use your phone w a blue tooth adaptor and your tv as a source. You may like it.
The Aragon 8008 is a very worthwhile SS amp. Especially if it is the BB or balanced version. Several for sale now on the 'gon, etc, and still being made, albeit by another manufacturer at an inflated price.
Aerial speakers could be nice depending on model, but probably need a lot of current, hence the Aragon amp.
Model numbers and not serial numbers would be helpful.
