Going rate for FMJ139?

Thinking of getting rid of my beloved 139. Anyone know what the going rate would be can''t seem to find any recent examples.

Thanks. Wow, could be tempted to keep it, still such a good player.

Cheers

Yep think I will. Was thinking about using the funds to get the new Oppo but at that money it's a keeper.

Thanks for your input.

Well I want the new Oppo BDP105 but even so I'll keep the DV139 :)

Exactly what I've decided to do and it is the 105 that is tempting me :)

Seen some on ebay go for £450. It is testament to how good it is that it's still in demand even after 5 or more years, and that it can still fetch that sort of value second hand when most DVD players can't be given away.

Same boat for me too with 105, but only for extra functionality it offers. I doubt it is a better listen* on DVD or CDP even if it has better SACD through not having to downgrade to PCM.

* And by that I mean it likely has a different sonic signature to the 139, but not necessarily better if you love the Arcam CDP sound.

There are two DV139 on eBay from a business account for £625 and £699 - used!

I was looking around for how much is a reasonable amount to sell mine for but I can't see them selling for that so I just put mine in the forum adverts here for closer to the going rate it seems.

I agree think that's optimistic but thanks for the heads up.

Well I took the plunge and my 105 arrives today. Will be putting it head to head against the 139 on analogue to see (hear) the difference. Then need to decide whether to keep or sell it. Good luck with your sale :)
