What Do You Do With Your Old Equipment?
When you purchase new gear to replace your aging audio/video tech, what do you do with them? Do you sell them off? Give to friends? Pack and store them to never be seen again? Or maybe you get some other use out of your old equipment by some other means?
I now currently have a set of surround speakers with sub, and I have no clue what I am going to do with them. I just recently replaced them with newer ones.

I put it up for sale (no eBay, RedFlagDeals). Second attempt is to my Family/Friends, really cheap. Like my Receiver, Panasonic SA-HE100 dts-ES 6.1 for $100
If I STILL can't find a buyer, I sell it to Cash Converters/Price Busters (Pawn Shops).SHAOLIN'S FINEST

I put my old equipment on Craig's List. I just sold two old projectors and some speakers recently. Much easier than eBay. No fees and no shipping hassles.

I'd keep an old receiver and box it up (just in case I need to send primary in for service). Everything else on Craigslist or give it to family.Samsung 46" 1080p LCD, Panasonic 42" 720p Plasma, Insignia 42" 720p Plasma
