Where do I find the value of vintage audio equipment and best way to sell


This is my first time posting information regarding vintage home audio, so I hope I am in the right place.

My father was a vet and while overseas during Vietnam he purchased audio equipment. I am trying to determine the value of the equipment and find the best way to sell them.  I have all of the original purchase receipts, warranty certificates, and shipping records (both from the Japanese company shipping and the pick up once stateside).  I had them professionally cleaned a couple of years ago and they are in great shape.

He purchased the following:
Akai 1800D-ss Reel to Reel with 8 track and recording microphones
Dual 1229 turntable with retractable wood encasement
Sansui QR-6500 Receiver
2 sets of Pioneer CS-99A speakers

This stuff is worth next to nothing good luck.
Check out eBay using the "Sold Listings" option for each component to help determine value. There may be a vintage electronics store near you, but if not try calling Dallas Vintage Audio (817) 280-9246.

First of all ignore "ebm’s" worthless advise.

1. Akai 1800D  $75 - $100 maybe more if you find the right buyer
2. Dual 1229  $114 - $455 depending on cartridge -- eBay sold listings
3. Sansui QR-6500  $275 - $300 -- eBay sold listings
4. Pioneer CS-99A  $475 - $1148 a pair -- eBay sold listings
I would take good photos of the gear and put them on your local Craigslist at a slightly reduced price if you don’t want to deal with shipping.

you also might find a simple cleaning and testing by professional tech could increase value dramatically
so maybe worth the high end of above prices

Unfortunately, at least where I live, a good cleaning/testing for the Akai and the Dual would eat up most of their quoted value; and a third of the value of the Sansui. The Pioneer speakers can be cleaned and tested by the OP with a moderate amount of care.
He stated they were recently professionally cleaned 
I guess I'm also lucky to live where it can be done at reasonable cost...
