    Greetings!
    Do you think is even worth it and if so, how much would you pay for a used 1802? Ive been thinking on getting a new Harman Kardon avr-140 (only because I can get it in a flexi pay option) or a used receiver. I was offered the Denon but we havent settle a price yet.
    Regards

    A good starting point for most used gear is about half what it’s original street value was. It’s a little fuzzier with receivers, though, because they become outdated so fast these days. If it’s older than 2-3 years old, it’s probably worth less than half. You might want to search the completed auctions on eBay to see what people are paying for them.

    I had an 1801 back in the day and paid $225 for the refurbished unit. It was a great receiver but $200 sounds a little high for a 1802 today. I don't think I would pay over $150.

    Exactly what I was thinking. $150 seems fair but I wonder if I am better off getting that Harman Kardon avr-140 anyway. What do you think? Its a small room just 12 x 12 or so an its an apartment anyway.
