Default What would this be worth? (B&W, Energy, Denon)

We moved about a year ago and the previous owner to my home left a Bose Lifestyle 38 system behind (he was too wealthy for his own good apparently). I had an awesome surround system that I had been given in exchange for approx $5k of web design work a few years back. This is somewhat high-end equipment from two companies named B&W, Energy and Denon (pre-consumer).

Here is what I have:

One Denon AVR-2700 Dolby 5.1 Receiver (before they became so consumer oriented) w/remote - http://brucearmstrong.net/hometheater/DenonAVR-2700.jpg

Two floor-standing speakers (B&W DM305) in great shape and perfect working order - http://www.bwspeakers.com/downloadFi...info_DM305.pdf

Two rear surround speakers (B&W DM302 - part of the Prism line) in excellent condition and in perfect working order - http://www.bwspeakers.com/downloadFi...info_DM302.pdf

One center channel (B&W CC3) in excellent condition and in perfect working order - http://www.bwspeakers.com/downloadFi...Model/ACFA.pdf

One Energy XL-S8 subwoofer in excellent condition and in perfect working order

Anyone wanna take a stab at this? i may just list it on craigslist since shipping may be a little much. ....thoughts?

Then go find a high end stereo store that sells used equipment and they might have the new copies.

I would suggest selling the Bose 38 and keeping that equipment.

not to mention, if the system is totally intact (a box and manual would be nice too), it's a lot easier to price a Bose system than those components. And then the obvious. I'd take B&W speakers of any kind over bose cubs, and honestly, that's not being blantantly biased. I was a fan of B&W long before I was an owner.

Sell the Bose system and go with what you've got. The Bose system is a convenience system without the performance quality

Keep the other stuff, set fire to the Bose System. Be careful not to inhale the fumes from the burning plastic...

Better yet, keep the equipment (why sell them?... they are superb quality components).

Sell the Bose equipment, use Bose's own marketing "catch phrases" to sell to some average Joe who doesn't know any better.
