Hello.  I am new to this site and am not sure where, exactly, to post this question?  I own a Kaleidescape system comprised of (1) K-Server 1500, (3) 1-Terra Byte Drives, and (1) K-Player 5000.  I sold my A/V company about a year ago, this system is from that showroom.  The system was demo'd about 10 times per month for about 3 years.  I can find the exact date of purchase.  Needless to say it has very little use on it, not to mention is in perfect condition...............no dents, dings, scratches, etc.  They are packed in their original boxes and stored in my master bedroom closet (climate controlled).  I have a second system in my home or I would use them for myself.  I am wondering what they are worth?  Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.  Thank You.

I looked at sold listings on eBay and several of the K-Player 5000s went for around $400 each. I didn't see any of the servers for sell although a couple of years ago I did see a 1U (K-1500) for $2000. I don't remember what hard drive config it had or if that was a good price. Nice equipment from what I've heard.

I don't know how much the name is worth but a 3TB movie ripper and server can easily be built for around $500. Add 50 or 60 bucks for a player.
