Thanks for that but you still can buy it over a 1000 + new

I think 750 is reasonable

2 years ago, brand new, they were selling for $636.

 

https://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?pu=3140165

 

Given the history of Onyko amps, with failing hdmi boards, I think that $300 is reasonable.

 

Anyway, still not sure where the amp is located.

No 300 sounds slightly too low imo but far more reasonable than the same price you paid for it new 2 years ago.

I think your going to struggle to sell this here, especially for what you paid for it 2 years ago.

I have no idea how people sell items on trademe that are sometimes more expensive than buying directly? or think that an item without warranty is worth 70 or 80 percent of the retail price. It just baffles me. I guess you should always know the retail value of an item before deciding it it's worth getting

i dont see where the problem is you can still buy them new at Price: $1199.00

 

http://www.albanyextreme.co.nz/audio/onkyo-network-a-v-receiver-7-2-channel

 

 

 

i was being honest i got on sale at 750 ( as people do always lie about things and on sum cases on trade me as well), i think its reasonable  at 690 

 

the buyer always wants it cheaper i get that ... i don't see what i am getting bashed for here

$300 is insulting. The deal that the buyer got originally is irrelevant to the value of the item now.

Opening bid.

 

Also - a bit of a wake up call about the more likely value of the item, rather than the RRP of the item that would have almost never been sold at that price.

 

The fact that a website hasn't removed the item from their web site of an obsolete product and still has a price of a superseded item (that they probably can't get from their supplier any more), or, have a very old stock item that they haven't been able to shift, does not make that the value of the item.

 

You can buy a newer version (by a couple of generations) of the item for $905 from JB hi-fi (https://www.jbhifi.co.nz/tv-home-entertainment/home-theatre/onkyo/onkyo-tx-nr676e-7-2-channel-receiver-black/338953/). Sorry, but the $1199 price listed on a web site has no bearing on the value of the item in an open market, and, you would have to be, well, not very smart to buy one at that price.

 

If the seller wants to sell a 2 year old receiver for the same price that they brought it for, trademe is probably a better bet, not a website primarily frequented by technically savvy people who can search for price history at the click of a button. Looking at the prices the receivers go for there, they may actually get that

 

Having said that, I still have no idea where in the country the item is located.

Actually, thats reality of the used market.
https://www.trademe.co.nz/electronics-photography/home-audio/amplifiers-tuners/auction-1585110403.htm?archive=1

 


Used AV Amps take a huuuge price dump compared to original price.
A bit like cars. The market decides its used value .
:-)

 

Another option is to take it to the shop you're buying the new amp from & see what they'll give on a trade-in.

Ok, that's fine. I won't be buying it then.

 

For the record, I was not trying to kill the FS thread. I was trying to negotiate using facts to support my offer. I believe the value of the receiver is somewhere between $300 and $400, based on the street price of the receiver, not the RRP (which I would be surprised if anyone paid, but, I'm sure there are some that would have). Also, the fact that the receiver is older now, probably won't receive many (if any) firmware updates, out of warranty, and the fact that Onkyo didn't have a stellar reliability record. All of those facts / options influenced my opinion of the value of the receiver.

 

The newer version was, for the second half of last year, being sold for $699 (https://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?pu=3603910) - until that model was basically removed from sale and you only had the outlier prices left that very few people would pay and is not a representative price to base a sell price on.

 

I believe my offer, while a little bit cheeky, was not too far off the value of that amp based on the above. 

 

You are probably best putting this on Trademe if you want to sell for that price. At least they force you to state a location.
