It sucks, that electronics depreciate so much in value. I paid $2000 for a Pioneer SC1527 two years ago and got $900 for it this year.
Anyways that said, I just bought Two Energy ESW-10 subs for $249 each on sale at Futureshop a few months ago.
Plus the fact you can get a new EP-175 which is comparible for $550. With new technology and **new** no humms with warranty also I think $250 is a bit much.
It is kinda of like buying a $75,000 hummer and asking $35,000 for it 15 yrs later
Good luck though.
PS To you it is worth more to others not so sure it will be that way
LOL OOOPPPPS I just saw that post was two yras old and was just bumped lol
I wonder if it did sell and what he actually got fo it ?

Your pricing is just about right though. For vintage collectable items (things that were good for a reason in their time), they can hold value reasonably well.
A $300 1970s receiver can still be found for $100 or more these days.
But with so much audio out there, i've experienced on average a 10-30% drop in price from retail for a used item within the first few years. Something older than 5 years i won't often consider a price higher than 60% of its original retail.
Price is also very much affected by condition of the unit.
