After running an inventory yesterday and totaling prices for insurance purposes I have noticed that my receipts from amps in the last 18 months have gone up on averagte about $1000. After looking around here in the classified section it seems the normal price of a comparable amp that sold only 18 months ago for say 2200-2500 is now in the range of 3200-3500. My question is WHY? Also, I don't understand why some folks think that their 89 SLO (example) should pull the same amount of dough as a 2006. Not saying one is better than the other in most cases I would rather have the 89 but just because Soldano is asking close to 4000 for a new slo it is not really honest to put in your ad "These sell for almost 4000". That is incorrect. The fact is in 89 that particular amp sold for $1600 new. Just food for thought.
