I am looking for assistance in selling a pair of SS-M9s.  They belonged to my father who passed away.  These things are pretty heavy so shipping would be quite risky and expensive.  Are there any sites other than ebay dedicated to the sale of high-end gear ?  Also curious if anyone has ideas about current resale value.  They are in excellent shape and approx 10 years old, brown wood casing (I read that they came out with black ones later).  I know msrp was ~3500 and that Sony came out with upgraded models once or twice.  Any thoughts or help appreciated.

I would try for a local sale first. These would have to be shipped by freight on a pallet.

Where are you in Ohio? I may be interested. I will pm you my email.

Mark- Before I just checked it out I didn't realize that a pair of Sony SS M-9 speakers weigh 290 pounds by themselves without the pallet...

Welcome Geoff,

Sorry to hear about your loss. Your father had great taste in audio equipment. The SS-M9 are quite rare these days and a very fine sounding speaker. I have a pair and I plan to keep them until I die or go deaf.



By your description, you have an original pair of SS-M9, which could date anywhere from 1996-1999. You are correct about the MSRP, but the street price was usually much lower and may were sold as refurbished through the Sony Outlet stores.



Unfortunately, as nice as these speakers are, the Sony brand name hurt their value (both as new and in resale). Sony is simply not known for making high end speakers. The SS-M9 and a few others were rare blips on the radar from Sony.



I've had my eye on SS-M9 sales for the last 2-3 years, and I would say the average price these days, (if they are in good working condition and no major cosmetic flaws) is somewhere between $700 and $1000. The higher end would probably have to be flawless and include original boxes, floor spikes, manual, brochures, etc.



Mark and the others are correct, local pickup is really the only option for these unless a buyer is willing to pay for proper pallet packaging and freight shipment.



I saw that Mark expressed interest and I know he is serious. However, if he does not follow through, I would suggest listing these on Craigslist (be prepared for low ball offers though), Audiogon and possibly Ebay. Just be clear to state they are for local pickup only. Take some good photos in a well lit room.



Good luck.

I wanted to thank everyone for the kind assistance and replies. I will let you know how it turns out with this as well as all the other gear. The remaining pieces it appears can be sold via ebay or craigslist.
