CD/Tuner Resale Question

This question isn't really an EA one.

I just replaced the Clarion CD/Tuner in my EA with a brand new Kenwood system (forked out $2,000 today for the system, speakers, central locking, imobilizer & alarm).

I'm wondering if the older CD/Tuners have any resale value... I think the Clarion unit is a DRB-3375 or something like that... your basic single CD with detachable face.

If they aren't worth much I may as well keep it to put back in the car when I go to sell it in a few years. Mind you, I've still got the original Ford Tape/Tuner that I can always put back in.

Should I try and sell it? How much for? Anyone want to buy one?


Madness takes its toll... please have exact change.

Realistically.... once the next season models come out.. your unit decpreciates by about 50% in total each year depending on how high/low end in the lineup it is.

For example.. i bought a Pioneer 4350 (last years model) for 490 as soon as it came out - THAT was a GOOD PRICE back then. I recently sold it for 250 to my brother 8 months later (which is still cheap).

I then bought a Pioneer 6350 current model off someone for unbelievably cheap for 300bux without a remote. Retail is now about 599 new at JB hifi after a huge price drop from 899.

I bought an ex-demo Kenwood unit that used to be sold for $900 at JB, and I paid only half that for it. So it's true that a secondhand example would possibly have gone for even less than that...
