Sunfire Cinema Grand - Used value?
« on: March 26, 2013, 11:21:48 AM »
Hi all,

Not sure if it's ok to ask this here or if it should be in the FS forum... but here goes.

I've got a Cinema Grand - original, not the signature model.  19" wide, in very good condition - a few marks on it but nothing too major, everything works, meter lights up and I've got the original box and the glass platform it came with.

I'm thinking of selling it, but have no idea what a fair price would be... any thoughts/advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!
  -Mike

I have seen ebay auctions from $500 to $1000.  In the condition you say it is in I would think you could get closer to the top.
Got Carver?

Wrong.  TG-I rarely sells for over $450 at best.  The main reason is that there ARE NO REPLACEMENT PARTS for the TG-I & TG-II any more.

Although there is one on ebay right now listed for &759.00, it will never sell at that price.  There are several current auctions there with prices sitting in the mid $300s.

Thanks, guys...  yes, it is the Cinema Grand 5 x 200w amp, not the Theater Grand processor.

You  guys are pretty good at this.   Try for $900.00 before memorial day.  $700.00 to a friend.   If it does not sell, wait until late October to do it again.
