I paid almost $ 20,000.00 for all of this equipment in 1994. It has been used very little.

I don’t know if I have all the receipts for this misc. software, but I do know that it is easily worth at least $ 700.00.
 
IN ADDITION TO ALL OF THESE ITEMS, THERE IS A LOT MORE.
Hundreds of blank floppys (mostly new 1.44 Mb, some 880K, some used)
All the video toaster magazines You Could Want.
All the Lightwave-Pro Magazines You Could Want.
RS232 & Video & Audio & Serial & Parallel Switchboxes.
RGB 4 Input Electronic Switchbox.
Some More Misc. Software.
Audio & Video Cables (lots & lots!).
 
This is a complete system so please understand that I do not wish to break it apart & sell it separately.
 
I am asking $1500.00 OBO
 
For example, The SONY SLV-R5UC SVHS Editing VCR ALONE was worth $1500.00 on sale for $979.99 when I bought it.
 
It is like brand new. Not a single scratch.
This is truely an incredible deal.
You're going to get so much stuff, you won't know what to do with it all.
There is an incredible amount to pack. All the software still has all the original packaging.
This is all original vintage Amiga.
 
Anyway, that's it. I am asking $1500.00 OBO
The buyer must pay for shipping.
Naturally, the closer you live to Los Angeles, CA, USA, the less shipping will be.
I finally decided to sell them. So I had a little time today & thought I'd post them for sale.
I'm sorry, but I have not had time to take pictures of everything, but I plan to when I get a chance.
Thank you.

To interject a little reality into this....  First, how does it all work now.
I hate to tell you this, but your can't expect to get anywhere near what you paid for this equipment. Expect quite a loss from your original investment! I do hope you find it all a good home though. Best of luck.

He said he was only after $1500 for the lot; reasonable, but a tad high.
Back away from the EU-SSR!

Parted out it probably is worth that price I guess but analogue desktop video technology isn't that convenient nowadays.

I second that, if it's going to be sold as seen / last working 16 years ago then the price will have to reflect that most of it could just be scrap. And even $1500 is a bit much for that.
 
Inside and out pictures and proof that it all still works are needed.

Yes, sort of like the true meaning of "untested" on Ebay, it means "I tried everything I could think of and nothing made it work."

When I read the title of this thread I thought somebody had uncovered a stash of about 50 A4000's in a storeroom somewhere.

I don't think depreciation was taken into account somehow.
