I bet any music-lover / audiophiile knows this one.

  • You own or find or get a great piece of audio equipment, be it speakers, a huge old tube amp, old mixing desk, vintage headphones, etc. for which you have no immediate use.

  • Adding to the fact that you are probably already hording too much stuff [professional or personal], and are aware you should get rid of things more than collect extra things.

  • A particular item is special to you because you like its' sound or quality, and those don't come around too often these days. at least not for cheap.

  • Market value for old gear is usually much lower than than its' worth.

We love our gear, and getting rid of items you love can be hard, especially with rare items that YOU feel is awesome.

What is your approach in this situation?

    Do you need the speakers? Yes -> Keep. Otherwise -> Do you need the money? Yes -> Sell. Otherwise -> Do you have room for the speakers? No -> Sell. Otherwise -> Is it likely you will use them again? No -> Sell. Otherwise: keep em ;-) Nov 17, 2015 at 15:02
