seeking vintage audio info


hey everyone, 
looking for some advice/info. I recently inherited a vintage stereo system, and I have no idea what it is worth. it is something I prob wont use, so im thinking of selling it, and I am hoping you guys can help me put a value on it, and send me to the best place to try and sell something like this. 
its a DUAL stereo system. I have a amp(cv-40) a tuner (ct-15) a turntable (1209) a real to real tape  (tg-28) and 2 speakers. I havnt been able to test the real to real, but it looks in great shape. the amp tuner and speakers work great, and the turntable powers on and turns, but I cant get it to stop turning for some reason. otherwise, everything is in great condition and it comes from the original owner who bought it new in Europe years ago.... 
any thoughts? appreciate any advice. thanks

Well thats not what i like to hear haha... care to elaborate?? The amp alone is on ebay for 300 bucks cdn. I know that doesnt mean squat... but just kinda eondering why u say that
Some tables from that era had autoplay and shutoff that looks at the tonearm movement and won't disengage until after reading the end of the LP and the arm auto-lifting. Be sure to play a side all the way through and see if it lifts on it's own. If it does that just might stop it from turning. Cheers,
Spencer
Sbank.. thanks for the info.. il try that

The whole system maybe 500-600. Not a very desirable vintage system. 
STOP!  If you like the system and it plays the music you like, keep it and enjoy it.  If the TT issue bothers you, it can probably be repaired easily.  DUAL TT were not complicated products.

As for the others on here:

IF YOU DON'T OWN AND DRIVE EITHER A BUGATTI VEYRON OR A BENTLEY CONVERTIBLE LIKE I DO, STAY THE HECK OFF MY ROADS!  WHO THE HECK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, DRIVING A CRAPPY CAR ON MY HIGHWAY?
its not so much that I like or dislike the system, its that I don't have a need or a use for it. I am trying to clear some room for my other system, and also get some cash to fund my other system. I just don't know enough about it to know weather to ask 100 bucks or 1000.... I know it was expensive new, but that never means anything!

mickeyb, thanks for the response... any ideas on the best place to try and sell it?


My suggestion.

Do your recent sales search. eBay offers sold prices. It's the easiest and fastest way. Be wary of the item that sells for much higher than the rest. It's an anomaly. You want your pricing to land in the middle. 
If you can't find your item. Check the sold tab on hifishark. Expanding the radius to world wide. Sometimes items weren't released in All countries. Audiogon has a blue book you can pay to access sales data. 

Don't try to sell as a system. Much harder to find 1 person that wants the whole system than someone who is looking to buy a single piece. And as a rule, you generally get less $ when selling as a lot. 

Shine it up. If it's old, maybe the yellow haze of nicotine covers it
good pictures not like the ones I take. Ugh
power it up when taking pictures so you can show all lights work. 

The big selling sites(like the one we are on now) is a great start. You can at the same time list it locally on C/L or Offerup or any numerous others. 
Local listings will often yield a lower sale price.
After researching recent sales of a particular item, I will deduct the fees and shipping I wouldve paid to sell nationally and maybe an extra 10% for lack of packing shipping hassle

national listing site $200 sale price. Local C/L $150 sale price but you will find that most want it for $20 no matter what it is

a video posted on YouTube of the the item working and demonstrating functions is a huge help and a bit of CYA when it come to the scammers. 

You can also try to trade it locally for an item of equal value that you would either like to keep or might be easier to sell and get the funds you need. 


These are are all options for your audio selling. The more you do the better your chances of higher sale price or at least a quicker sale over a similar item
