    I'm thinking of selling my Pioneer 504HDE as we have sold our house and will be moving to a rented apartment in Canary Wharf.

    It's about 18 months old and has done 3,500 hours.
    The media receiver and display are in perfect condition with no screen burn, although the remote does show some small signs of normal wear and tear.

    It would come with the PDP-S12-LR speakers, a PDK-WM01 wall bracket and a PDK-TS04 stand, all the original boxes and manuals.

    What could I expect to get for it?

    There may also be the opportunity to purchase an AX5i receiver and speakers but first I will need to determine how much they are worth.

    I'll kick things off buy saying around a figure of £2100 - £2300.
    It helps that you are including the speakers and various options for mounting the panel.

    Plasma prices are coming down fairly fast, especially since the 505 came out. These are going for a fair bit cheaper than when we bought our 504's. You can get hold of a 505 for around £3800.

    Also taking into account the no warranty due being S/H and 18 months old, and this will have an effect on the value also.

    HTH.

    Thanks for the reply although that's quite a bit lower than even my most pessimistic guesstimate... :(

    If it really is only worth that then I may as well hang on to it.
    It seems silly to take such a huge drop after so short a time.

    Brogan - there is another thread on a similar subject on the forums here

    You may get more, as pricing something is fairly subjective, but I've seen them sell elsewhere around the sort of money mentioned above.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I had no idea the 2nd hand market was so poor for high-end plasmas.

    Those prices come down so much because newer models are so much cheaper (and mostly also better), so to take the older model, the price has to be a lot less than the newer model unfortunately.
