Optimist pricing of Realistic STA-960

My baby's gotta move, can't bear to see it as a tuner any more; what's a reasonable starting point for one of these in good cosmetic and working condition? I don't like the prices i'm seeing on that auction place....

The only completed auction is $90. That's probably about top dollar. Realistic gear is generally underappreciated and thus the monetary value just isn't that high.

Good Realistic gear is unappreciated they got there reputation for a reason, just look at some of the stuff they passed of as quality. You could probably squeeze $100 out of a 960 on CL if you're patient.

I feel your pain. I have three receivers in the 50WPC category that really should go down the road, but I know they won't go for as much as I think they should. The 960 sure is a goodlooking piece.

Most Realistic gear goes for low prices. So don't expect to get too much for it.
