This is DigDug's Wife; DigDug passed away. Need advice on selling sound absorbing panels


Hi,
Oops. I see he went by DKirk111 (He went by DigDug on another site.). Anyway, this is DKirk111's wife. My hubby passed away last January and I’m just now starting to sell his stereo systems. (Yes, plural.)

He has four sound absorbing panels and two of them are on metal footed stands., I need advice on what price to ask for these. I couldn’t find any receipts for them (either paper or online), nor could I find any brand name on the panels or the stands. (BTW, I’m selling these locally. These would be a bear to ship otherwise.

(BTW, His components & components are pretty high-end. For instance, he’s got a pair of "B&W 805D3 Rosenut speakers with matching stands." I think he bought those on this site. Am I allowed to sell any of his components & speakers here? Or no?)

Okay. Back to the sound panels & stands. I wish I could post a photo for you of these, but I see that I can’t. So I’ll try to describe them better...And I hope this is going to be good enough for a Facebook ad! (I’ll have photos for that, of course.)

Each panel is beige and has a beige metal frame around it. Each panel measures 24"W x 48"H x 3.25"D. When a panel is mounted in a metal stand it can be mounted at a lower level (like couch height) or a higher level. (more like ceiling height) .

Can anyone give me a general guideline to go by for pricing? DKirk111 tended to only buy "the best" so that’s why I’m asking first before I try selling them at a price I’d be guessing at.
Thanks--
DKirk111’s Widow

Hi Mrs Kirk,
Very sorry for your loss. These forums are for discussion, but to advertise for sale items you can place an ad in classifieds here. It's not really possible to help with the panels if there isn't a brand name, but if you are able to post a photo here with one of the photo sharing services, you can post it on the forum and members will help you to identify them.
@OP,
Sorry to hear about your husband.
As far as pricing goes, I suggest looking at HifiShark, scroll to filters and you can limit what you want to see, then check on 'Sold'. You should get an idea of what prices have been for your merchandise.

I seem to recall sound absorbing panels fitting your description that were sold a good number of years ago--maybe they were "Echo Tunes"?  One of our NJAS members used them with his Analysis Audio speakers.  They were not too expensive, I think (couple of hundred dollars for the 24x24 inch ones?).  A picture would help.  
My sincerest condolences on your loss Mrs Kirk.
Thank you to each & every one of you for your condolences.
I've uploaded 3 photos of the sound panels to Flckr if anyone wants to take a look and guess what I should sell these for. I'd appreciate some feedback.

They look like a product called RealTraps, though I can't be sure.  New, with a stand, they would sell for about $370 or so each (you can check the dimensions and google their website for the prices).  You might want to try to sell them for 50-60% of the new price.  I do recall them being effective in my friend's room, and Stereophile has listed them as a recommended component.
rcprince: THANK YOU! I'll check it out!
I am sorry for your loss.
The units in the photos are indeed made and sold by RealTraps.
50-60% of the new price seem reasonable.
They are very well engineered products.
A high end audio store could be an option. You'll get less money but far fewer headaches. Did you say where you're located? When you google the going prices, look at the high price and the low selling price. Some items look attractive but come up short when you try to sell. Getting top dollar is usually achieved if you're willing to wait and put up with a lot of tire kickers. I wanted $5000.00 for a $20,000 set of speakers. After one year plus, I sold for $2300.00 It felt like such a victory to put the "ordeal" behind me.
   This is a message to all of us. We should all consider leaving our loved ones details on how to sell our systems after we're gone. Joe
