    How much do you guys think I could get for this equipment as a package? I'm thinking of rebuilding from scratch...
    I've listed what I paid in Canadian funds when I bought it...
    Toshiba 40 x 81 HDTV (about $3300.00)last year
    2 B&W S2 Speakers (Main)(about $2000.00)2 years ago
    Pioneer Elite THX DTS/DD Receiver(about $1800.00)2 years ago
    Pioneer Pro Logic Amp (Sub amp)(About $800.00 long time ago)
    2 300 watt Subwoofers (About $950.00)
    2 Infinity rear speakers (About $500.00)
    Panasonic DVD player (About $800.00)
    Phillips CD carousel player (Worth about $100.00 now)
    (Everything is in mint condition)
    What do you guys think would be a fair price to ask for this package in CDN funds?
    Thanks.

    Micheal,
    With such a nice system it may be difficult to sell it as a package. Most people with the money to purchase an entire system like that would want to buy a new system.
    I have no idea what it would be worth as a package but unless you are very lucky, you may want to sell the items individually.

    Even if there were buyers who'd want to get the whole thing in a single package, you'd be much better off selling each piece individually.
    I observed this from personal experience, whatever you sell, selling in quantity will net you less than selling individually.
    You got to decide what worth more, putting in the time to handle each piece individually, or less hassle and less $.

    Also take into account the fact that prices have fallen quickly on many of the things you have
    EG:
    Toshiba TV ... you can get a NEW model for about $2900+ax
    The Dvd player if a couple of years old may ber worth $200
    The Pro logic unit .... Keep it!! At last weeks Denon sale they had a refurb 1100 for $90..
    It's great stuff, but price have fallen pretty steeply on HT related product.
    LL cool B

    Thanks guys, I know that everything depreciates. That's why I listed what I paid for it in the past.
    I do know that I can get $2500.00 CDN for the HDTV, it's mint and I've had offers. Besides, the 40H80 retails for close to $4000.00 CDN in Ottawa and it's the same TV.
    Thanks again guys, I think I'll sell everything separately.

    I'll give you my wife and kids right now. No, seriously, I'll give you the wife. She is lazy, can't cook, needs help on certain sexual techniqes and can spend lots of money.
