    Morning,

    DOes anyone know of a place (Edinburgh or UK) or a website that would beable to tell me how much my 8yr old Kenwood Hi-Fi is now worth?

    I bought it as I said 8 years back for just over £1500 and never had a bit of bother with it, I love it however due to lack of space in the living room the wife wants a smaller system.

    Any help would be grateful.

    Keep it.
    It's second hand value is minimal, if anyone wants to buy it for more than £200 you'll be lucky.
    On the flip side, to obtain the same performance will cost you £1500 again or more.
    Is it a M97CDS system or similar, six black 360mm separates with 3-Way speakers including a pretty Spectrum Analyser display ?
    Wifey will see your logic, replace it with a smaller system when it requires an expensive repair instead.

    Do you want a home for it? I'm very willing to give it one, rent free.

    Just recently sold the exact same stereo to a friend who was quite happy to pay £200 for it. Had it for about five years, superb system. Great sound and it looked pretty good as well. Was sad to see it go.

    It may become a classic as Kenwood have just decided to withdraw from the hifi and hc markets in the UK ...
