My System Specs

Default Old audio equipment value & other thoughts

Hi All!

My wife and I are looking at buying our first house, which is prompting a cleanout of my storage/workroom. Among the many precious artifacts therein are an old mixer board, an old guitar amp, and a PA-style speaker/monitor. I've used them over the years for music at numerous occasions, and (at one time) as impromptu TV speakers. Everything has a nice clear tone, but I really don't have much use for it all anymore.

The problem is that, should I sell it, I have no idea what to sell it for. I know there are some 70's audiophiles out there who might find some of this of value (the mixer/amp is 1973, I think), but I really don't have a clue. Any thoughts on value or ideas of what one should do with these kinds of things?

For reference, the mixer is a Yamaha EM-70 (not to be confused with the later M-70), the guitar AMP is a Sears 26121 model, and the PA monitor is in a "Crate" enclosure, rated for 100w, and has a horn and a woofer (~12") in it. Here are some pics, as well.

As always, any thoughts are appreciated
