Need advice for pricing on vintage equipment
« on: November 07, 2017, 10:04:24 PM »
Howdy folks,

A friend of mine asked  me what she can look at a fair asking price for the following equipment (they looked okish and she said they are in working order). So having no clue what they are worth, I thought I'd ask here :)

Its the following:
Sony PS-LX 100 turn table
a pair of Mordaunt-Short MS35Ti Bookshelf speakers
Teach A-X550 stereo amp
Teach PD-155 CD Player
Sony ST-JX 380 FM Tuner
Sony TC-W300 cassette player

Just a ballpark would suffice, thanks

-G-

I suggest you scope out E-bay and add about 10%, local gearheads love vintage. They might even flood your inbox with PM's to get to this gear.
You can even post them on the tree, but then add about 20%-30%.

There are some bonkers TEAC fanatics around so should sell very quick.

Judging pricing on eBay is difficult. I was browsing the bay the other day. I have a fairly scarce pioneer in sa system and to replace on the average eBay prices would cost me around R30 000, about 3 times what I paid for mine in SA.

i dont think ebay is the correct yard stick that should be used to price equipment.
browsing the inter webs should give you an idea based on the condition of the equipment and it condition and what not working and so forth.
The reason why i disapproved of ebay due to the fact the you pay the sellers asking price of dollars converted to rands.
