HI, I'm new to the forum. I have a Kriesler 25 TV, radio and record player that I'm looking to sell. It was bought brand new by my grandparents, I have the original receipt, and given to me when they died. I also have some promotional sales brouchers for it. I'm not sure if it's working yet, I haven't had a chance to test it yet. It is in good physical condition. Not sure what it's worth, I'm open to offers or advice on value. Also where are good places to sell these?, eBay?.

Thanks
St

These kind of things, unfortunately dont command high prices, mainly due to there physical size and freight costs.

You could try Ebay or Gumtree. As you are from Sydney you will get a few more bites.

E-mail Brad (site owner) and get him to upload some pictures of the machine and perhaps someone here may be able to give you an idea of the value.

If you were a bit closer, this is the kind of thing I might consider as a one off for my collection.

Best of luck,


Ben

Hi, I have some photos of my TV, radio and record player unit. I also have all the original brochures, instructions and warranty for it. Can I post photos here or email them to someone to give me an idea of what it's worth. I would like to sell it and am after an honest appraisal of what it's worth.

As has been mentioned earlier, big units don't sell well because they have to be transported -- by ute, trailer or van. They also take up a lot of space.

The exception to this is if the unit is broadly considered to be desirable piece of furniture. Danish styling and Parker designs do tend to find keen buyers.

From my observation, well looked after Multisonic radiograms (no TV) do tend to sell as long as the sellers don't put too high a reserve on them.

The only way to get a feel for what yours is worth at any particular time is to put it up for sale and let the market (if there is one) decide.

You can Google around yourself for 3-in-1 and see what ads are current in eBay and Gumtree and what people are asking, and if there are any bids.

Hi GTC, I am looked at eBay and Gumtree and it's hard to get an idea on value. I'm not looking to make a lot of money, it has more sentimental value than anything. My grandfather bought in new and I got it from my grandmother when she died. I would like it to go to someone like a collector. I understand what you mean about taking up space, it's sitting in my garage and does take up space and I can't see myself ever doing anything with it. Any estimates or guesstimates on what it's worth?, or would someone like to make an offer?.
Thanks
Scott

There is no real market value for these large combination TV units, it is all down to condition and whoever happens to take a fancy to having it. It will have a much higher sentimental value to you than what most people would want to pay for it.

They are nice units though with good quality mid-range Hi-Fi components and sound quite good, they just take up a lot of room!

Yours has suffered a bit over the years with damaged and discoloured speaker cloth which will put some people off.

Most of the time when these sort of items come up for sale, the typical price being asked is around $50. Sometime they sell, sometimes they don't. I have the older brother model to your unit and I paid $50 for it on Ebay and was the only bidder. I think the seller was just grateful to get rid of it!

That is a real beauty of a set! I'd grab that for a $50, only problem is I'm a few hours from Sydney, and I don't know where I would put it! Maybe when I leave home and have some space larger then a bedroom!

Nevertheless, as others have suggested, EBay and Gumtree may be your best bets. Maybe even ask some of your local antique shops if they would be interested?


Chris
