    Well, the time has come and i'm in desparate need of money. Let's just say, i really, really need to do this or I could loose my HOUSE! (eeeks) I hate to do it but the HT has to go for now.

    I need some advice on how to sell it and how much you think it should go for.

    Should i list the speakers seperatley or as a system? What do you think is a fair asking price for each item?

    Start with a for sale post in the "For sale" section here on the forum. If no luck there, then try e-bay.

    I think you'll have an easier time selling them separately than as a set. A little more work, yes, but you'll get more money out of everything individually. It's also easier to find two people interested in two different things than it is one person interested in both.

    Sorry to hear about your financial problems. Hope things work out for you.

    First, determine how much YOU have paid for them. Then, take into consideration wear and tear. Finally, determine how much you want to loose compared to how much you've spent.

    If you've spent $1000 would you rather sell them for say, $500? Heck no. Try... $700. It all depends on you.

    And don't sell it to Geno for $5 because I'll gladly give you $10!!

    Easy, go to ebay, search for your item, then hit "ended auction", and that will show all auctions ended in past few months. That’s the best estimate of how much to expect.
