I've sold many pieces of audio and video equipment including amps, receivers, speakers, turntables, etc. on ebay. Yes the fees are high, but the world is your customer base, and it's likely that someone, somewhere, will want your items at or near your asking price...if you're not too out of line and buy your product at prices that will allow a decent profit. I've discovered there's been a resurgence in interest in vintage equipment since the return of the vinyl record, so I search out items still in good shape to send to new homes. Those pieces I buy that turn out to be too far gone to resurrect or turn out to be just plain junk I try to part out the usable parts to at least recover my initial investment. You can't always test components or speakers on site and sometimes have to take a chance on whether they will work or not. I've learned to pass on the obvious. When it looks trashed, it probably is. My biggest problem is damage that occurs during shipping. And I don't mean because the items weren't packaged well. I learned early that a little extra expense and effort goes a long way in protecting valuable and sometimes very fragile items in transit. Unfortunately, some idiots, especially at the USPS, don't regard your items with the same value you do. No packaging will protect an item from a 4 foot drop or a crushing blow with a forklift. I could get a substantial reduction on ebay fees if I agreed to returns, but that's not an option for me, especially when selling used items.
