    Nothing wrong with the 700. I priced it attractively because I want it to sell and bearing in mind that buyer would have to be able to move a very heavy unit from my place to his.

    I have received a very large number of emails on the subject in my original posting on this thread. I apologize for simply having no time to reply in detail at this time.

    I now realize that the wording of my original posting may have been unintentionally misleading, for which I also apologize.

    I know that all the asking prices in the original posting are considerably, and in the case of the PRO700 ridiculously, less than knowledgeable people would expect. This was for a particular reason which I now see was not made clear.

    I stress that all of the equipment is in good condition and full working order. The very low prices are because I was looking for a purchaser in my area of the country who would be prepared to buy all of the items as a single package, pick them up at my home after being satisfied everything is in good condition and pay me either in cash or cashier's cheque.

    Unfortunately I am completely unknowledgeable about the mechanics of buying and selling used equipment on the net, I never done either before. If an item were shipped, how would I know that I would receive payment? Equally, how would the purchaser be assured that the item is OK?

    My thinking was that it would be impractical to sell anything without the purchaser seeing the equipment and me demonstrating that it is OK. Thus, how could I sell for example the PRO700 first and still be able to demonstrate that the other video equipment is in good order? Practical advice to someone as naive as me on these issues would be appreciated.

    So far my "ideal purchaser" of the whole package has not contacted me. If I have to sell items individually, I am afraid that I could not stick to the very low prices and I would have to re-think what is fair market price for each item and how the shipping and payment would be made. I do not see how the PRO700 could be shipped - it is huge and very heavy.

    Also I should note that I do not have any original packaging anymore - it was disposed of by my now ex-wife when I was'nt looking. I do however have all the original manuals.

    Once again I apologize for being a dumb rookie in this area and for being unable to reply in detail to the many people who have emailed me.I still want to sell the equipment and would welcome any advice with regard to the normal procedure for selling,shipping and ensuring receipt of payment for individually.

    Also, I do not know whether it would be permitted by the moderator to post revised ask prices for single item sale and shipment.

    FYI- UPS will not ship anything that large and/or heavy. You'll need to go with a common carrier. Better yet, I shipped some furniture (heavy antique 2 chairs and a sofa)cross country a couple of years ago and had Mail Boxes,Etc do it for a little over $600. including crating. The only thing is you may have to drop it off there and being the owner of the same TV that's easier said than done.

    Apologies to everyone who has emailed me who has not received a reply.I am still absolutely swamped with scores of unanswered emails. All I can do now with very little available is to use this post as a general reply to everyone.

    I am at an advanced stage of discussion with someone who is prepared to buy all equipment as a single package and pick up at my home. This is by far my preferred course of action.

    If this does not work out and I decide to sell items separately, I will email everyone who has emailed me about buying individual items.
