Hello Ron:

That is an impressive set-up. I took this off AudioGon Bluebook, but you will notice their database is years behind. There are a lot of people that use this database when considering purchasing something. Being the original owner and in a smoke free environment is a Big plus! It is hard these days to find an original owner so that should add value in my opinion. The M-500t is currently a sought after unit, not so much on the other units unfortunately. This is just my opinion, I would take the used data except for the M-500t and place it on the high side, maybe using the "last". So you would be looking around >

M-500t = $420.00
4000t = $330.00
TX-11a = $200.00
DTL-200= $150.00

Total = $1100.00

You might have to split up, don't know if anyone would pay this as a complete package? AudioGon Bluebook >
