Practical cost to sell a denon AVR E300

I'm looking to upgrade to a 4k receiver so I want to sell my Denon AVR E300 to help go to my upgrade.

What is a practical cost to try to sell it on craigslist?

I was looking at ebay, and the prices are all over the place. Anywhere from $80 to $500.

Thanks!

If you can get $80 I'd count yourself lucky. It's outdated and looks to have sold for under $400 new.

Ouch! That's a bigger hit in the pocket than I expected.

Okay, so new question.

What do you guys do with your old receivers? Just sell it and chock it up as a loss?

If you are looking to expand up to Atmos 7.1.4, you could purchase a 9CH model (eg. X4300H) and use the E300 to power the Height 2 speakers when expanding to 11CH processing. Otherwise re-purpose it to the bedroom or you can probably get about $200 on Craigslist for it.

I'm about to upgrade too and am going to move my current receiver to my bedroom.

The bedroom seems to be the smart move, or just a secondary room where you want a sound setup. You can buy refurb receivers with HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0 off of A4L for $150, I don't see a non-4K compatible model commanding a higher price than that unless there's something really special about the E300 I'm not seeing.

Only a small percentage of owners have moved to 4k (I haven't nor expect to anytime soon) so not a requirement for the vast majority of owners. In fact I would guess that most (ie. not on AVSForum) don't even know what HDCP 2.2 means, especially not the average Craigslist buyer.

Thanks for all the good info. I posted it to craigslist with a price of $200/obo so we'll see what bites (if any) that I get. I'm in no rush to upgrade to 4k, but if I can get a decent amount now, and make my buy in low, my wife will be happy.

This is probably close to the market value at this time for the E300...$100 maybe...$125 tops if someone in your area really wanted that particular model.

Highly unlikely...bought one "new" early last year for $219 and sold it late last year for $150 on Craigslist. Entry level AVRs like the E300/E400 lose their value quickly and do not command much in the used market. As everyone suggests, "entry level" AVRs are best relegated to the bedroom system or passed down to kids or relatives.

Again .. you knew about the product. Used E300's are selling on Amazon for near $300 so it will depend on what buyer's are interested in the OP's local area.

I bought one new last year as well for $129.95.

I guess I better put it up for sale. That's a better return than the stock market! A real windfall! Who knew, I'm sitting on a gold mine!

They should change to model number to AVR-$300.

Wondering how you would do this as the AVR-E300 does not have discrete amplifier inputs?

Okay...I'll give you that. Product value is what a buyer is willing to pay for it. However, I believe $300 is an asking price rather than a purchase price. And it's understood that there are many fishermen on Amazon and ebay...and occasionally a fish may be caught. However, in realistic and practical terms, it's unlikely an E300 would fetch much more than $100 today in the majority of scenarios/instances.

Since these types of threads eventually turn into classified ads, we are going to close this thread (normally we don't let them go on this long). The OP has the information necessary to make his decision. All parties have had their opinions aired relative to the market values.

Thanks for your understanding
