HiFi Trade?
  1. No
Defo the wrong time to be selling hifi on E-Bay imo.

Nintendo Wiis are a different proposition altogether.

I wish i could get one for a sensible price for my nephew.

I dunno you know. Just flogged my Cambridge Audio P500 power amp for 120 quid on eBay. Bugger all interest on the various forums, but someones now gone and paid out at the top end of what they've been going for. Made me a tidy little profit over the price I paid for it 2nd hand.

Depends of course what you are selling. Hi-fi sells the best during the cold months of the year when folks are cooped up indoors when it's cold/wet/icy outdoors, so indoor entertainment like hi-fiis used more often

yep spot on.

when i was into superbikes aswell as my hifi system, come winter i would mess around trying different kit and come spring i would mess around with the bike and garden.

Yes, generally speaking a bad time to sell.

Expensive stuff at least, Reckon the cheaper stuff will still do quite well.

Best time to sell is the week after all the kids have gone back to school after the summer hols.

It's a bad time to buy as well, maybe because people are saving their selling until after Christmas.

I'm sat here with a wad of cash bulging in my pocket, well metaphorically and there's nothing I can find that immediately jumps out at me.

New year's resolution no. 1 : buy new system!

New year's resolution no.2 : sell old system!

I'm not sure about this myself, and have held off on putting things on this month

From a casual look at my regular eBay searches, there are not as many items listed as usual
