    I have recently acquired the following items, most of which are vintage stereo/home theatre equipment, and I would like to know their value/capabilities:

    Nakamichi CA-7A Control Amplifier, Made in 1986, mint condition. Serial: 01356

    Nakamichi OMS-7A II - COmpact Disc Player, Made in 1986. Mint condition. Serial: V303 01321

    NAD Monitor Series Stereo Tuner 4300, (made in '87??) Mint, swivel, but no antenna to attach. Serial: 350388

    NAD Stereo Amplifier 3155, Made in (1980 something?) mint. Serial: 420883

    JVC Video Cassette Recorder HR-D47OU. (willing to guess another 1980s?) Serial - 101L2862

    And for my only modern piece that I have received:

    Pioneer Media receiver PDP-RO3U, made in 2003.

    If anyone can help me find the REAL VALUE of this stuff, please help me.

    Vintage gear

    Hi there. I use to collect stereo amps and CD players and tuners. I love the gear from the 80's. I had the same question, but was disappointed at some of my gears value, some like pioneer technics and some other names where worth money, but it seemed some models of the same manufacturer where worth more than others, my source of money gear was fetching was vintage gear on ebay, so in a word if a pair of collectors really wont it, the value can be very good, but some models fell short. Shame really.

    Vintage stereo gear

    In my opnion 80's stereo equipment was some of the best, and a little earlier. I see some sought after gear go for huge amounts of cash, and as i say other models fall short of what i thought it was worth. My misses made me part with some of mine, saying why do you need all that gear. I would follow ebay, watch what gear fetches, go in the vintage stereo section, you might just have a diamond there. All that gear made in japan for me is top quality.

    Hi The boss,
    welcome to the forums :)

    When it boils down to the bottom line ... they are only as valuable as what some one is willing to pay for it.
