    Hi,

    I'm thinking of selling my Arcam AV8 as part of a move to split my system into separate hi-fi and AV systems. The possible second hand value of the AV8 (which I'd need to sell) would impact on the financial viability of this approach. So, I was wondering what could I reasonably expect to get for an AV8?

    Regards,

    Jules.

    As a current & very popular model I would think that you should get somewhere in the region of £1500 - £2000 for the AV8 (I think it retails at just over £3k new). Possibly a bit more if it is still under warrenty.
    The above is assuming that the AV8 is in perfect working order with no scratches or dents etc. and including remote & instructions and with the origional box.
    I also think that being so popular it would get snatch up very quickly if you put it up for sale in the Hardware Sales area of this forum.

    This is just a guess as I have never seen an AV8 up for sale s/h

    Mark.

    Jules,
    I've only seen one of these for sale and that went for £2,200 and very quickly. the AV8 and P7 don't come up for sale very often so you should have no problem selling it.

    regards
    John

    I'd go for £2000. You'll sell that in seconds. :(

    I think £2k max. You can get a new one for £2400-£2500 (based on prices quoted to me from 3 different authorised dealers).

    yep I'd go with the same figure as rags, mind you he did tell me where to go to get those prices.
    If you're serious on getting rid of it, pm me as I'd like to possibly have first dibs
