Fair Price for Carver M400

Finally willing to separate myself from my Dad's stereo equipment. One of the components was a Carver M400 and I am wondering what a fair price would be. Chrome is excellent, still performs fine and NO I don't have the box. Thanks to all that give me any guidance on this issue.

Re: Fair Price for Carver M400

To get the most out of it, you'd be best off listing it on eBay.
Prices are pretty low right now, everyone is broke. Could only get up to $100
Some nut in Russia might need it to match his other 3 chrome cubes, and pay $500 (not likely though)

a fair price for buyer and seller, I'd say $200-250

Keep in mind, no matter how good of condition it is, it's 20 years old, and it will need some TLC soon.

Goodluck

Re: Fair Price for Carver M400

My benchmark value is $200, but if it has some problems, less.
