This is a neat piece and seeing them always brings back nice memories!

There are a bunch of variables when selling these, like working condition and condition of the console, replacement or original parts, etc. The answer to each variable will change the value of the item. Your location will also change the value of the item. Value = what someone HAS PAID already for a comparable item that is an exact match to yours.

Like if it works, has all original hi fi pieces, the wood is pristine, you will see one value, vs. one that has had work, has a replacement motor, case has a lot of dings, you will such a much different value.

If you have a reputable store like a consignment shop around, I suggest you talk to them to find out what your piece will sell in the condition yours is in and in your town.

The upside of this is then you don't have to deal with the muss and fuss of selling it yourself, trying to get it to someone, etc. You usually get more that way too.

Some other general info...
Where I am in Pittsburgh, people like to take these things apart and sell off the cabinet for flea market flip pieces and the machine for parts (if it works). But that is a regional thing, which may not fly where you are located.

Although, the selling the working parts though is people on eBay or at swap meets/flea markets who will look for and buy the parts and often pay good money if they are tested and working. People who have their own project pieces are always looking for parts to keep theirs going.

Please post back what you learn!! Thanks for sharing!!
