    Hope this isn't the wrong forum but I'm looking into selling my Sony and am struggling to find out how much it's worth because they don't have the same model on sale anymore.

    Anyone offer any advice for an as new boxed NS-900?


    Many thanks

    I'd hang on to it for that price to be honest....

    I have a 4 year old Panasonic DVD-RV60 that was £400 new, and I'd be lucky to get £100 for that (and it's mint condition). Rather than sell it for that sort of loss I've moved it to the bedroom....

    If it's any use, I'll give you £110 for the 900 to replace my Denon 2800. Might be worth you keeping it as already suggested. It's a great player.

    tbh I can't see myself accepting any less than £180 for it.. it was £550 at launch!! Personnally I've yet to see a player that matches it. I'm looking into building a HTPC though.

    There's not a mark on it plus it's boxed with all original docs etc.

    Trouble is, they've all got cheaper - the newer version of yours - the DVP-NS930 sells brand new (multi region) for £220 and that also offers PAL/NTSC progressive scan!

    It's just the way it goes I'm afraid - I've just replaced my Rotel RDV985 DVD player - I paid £600 for this player a few years back but I doubt I'd get more than £150 for it, even though it's in immaculate condition.

    Much as i agree that it is the market forces that determine price, i flatly refused to sell my sony dvp s7700 for £150.

    I bought the player for £600 3 years ago , if you don't need the money desperately, just hang on to the player.

    I am using mine in the bedroom now!!

    My Sony 930 amp was £600 new and I just sold it for £130. Similarly, the Denon 2800 I just bought from Witters for £120 was I beleive £750 new.

    If you don't want to take the hit then keep it but I reckon you'll be pushed to get anywhere near £180 for it. Maybe on Ebay if you're very lucky and get 2 spanners bidding against each other.

    thing is market forces bring prices down but you still can't touch the build quality of the older stuff.

    I have a Sony 900V in silver, Technics A10 and a Toshiba SD900 all immaculate. All of them bombproof.

    For the price it's not worth selling cos you simply won't get that build quality again.

    Isn't that part of the cheaper QS range though?

    I've decided to keep it anyway, i'd be crazy to sell!

    I have a 900v not being used due to its -R temperament, but I still cannot part with it due to the pure build and tweak options.
    When I eventually progress from CRT, an in built prog decoder may be as necessary as onboard DD/DTS decoding is today, hopefully to give it a dusting down.

    900v has no problems working with a whole host of branded -R media.

    What brand media you using and more importantly what software you using to burn DVD-R;)

    I use various brands, but the only one I have kept as a reference for this problem is a white label one, I now use Sony and Maxell.
    I had a few problems but cannot say with which media, so I ended up using a different player, especially after reading similar stories here.
    I am sorry I cannot be more specific, it was the easy option to use another player which sailed through the problem discs.
