Thinking about buy another set of M80-V3 and a friend has a set which are just over a year old and he is asking 1000.00 .

Do you think this is a fair price ?

For a V3 yes this is a fair price. Not a great deal but a fair price.

You can get a brand new pair with 5yr warranty for $1180 on the auction site. Something to consider and use as a negotiation if you decide to go with the used ones.

My ususal rule of thumb is 50% If you know the buyer and trust the quality that is worth a premium, but not that much of a premium.

Axiom, though they produce a high quality product are not exactly a houshold name and do not command any sort of brand premium.

I'd pay the extra and buy brand new (or from auction if they show up) unless you can negotiate the price down a bit more. The warranty is non-transferable so if something goes wrong you will have to pay to repair.

Did you buy your axioms to enjoy them yourself or sell them? I think Axiom makes some of the best sounding speakers on the market for the money. I'd say enjoy them and don't worry about it.

It always makes upgrading to the newer Axioms easier if you can sell your current ones at a higher price, but personally, I always just pass my stuff on to family and friends when I upgrade. Speaking of which, when IS my next upgrade? I've been letting myself get distracted.

Definitely true CV. I guess I'll be running in to that situation soon. I'm pulling the trigger on a VP180 in 2 weeks and have to decide what to do with my VP150...

i just finished upgrading, it took me 3 years (including a Kuro);
that's my last upgrade.

i also give the old equipment away, except the JVC Super VHS, which nobody wanted;
i just threw it away.
