You should sell them (anything) asap while they still have more interested buyers, and thus some value. Delay, age, new technology advance,
I always try to find someone to give them to, usually successful.
This last one, a nice Onkyo TX-NR626 (retired when I got a unified Sony TV/AVR/BLU (for simplified remote) is still on the shelf.

I recently posted for free on Craigslist some old stuff I inherited, Bose acoustimass 5 set, Panasonic dvd-a120 , Panasonic vcr and Yamaha 740 receiver from 2002. I literally had 20 hits on it in an hour. Keep it out of the landfill if it works! Can still bring joy to many.
Side note- Craigslist has a Free section, I have found it a very efficient way to move things to give them a second life. It may surprise you what people are looking for and will take off your hands!
