Default Value of Nakamichi PA-7 power amp?

i have a Nakamichi PA-7 power amp and i'm trying to find out the value so i can sell it.
its in great condition, its only missing the plastic cap for the power button
i also have the CA-7A pre-amp that goes with it and the ST-7 tuner.
does anyone know the value of these components?
i have seen the PA-7 go from 800-1200$
but all those sales were 2006 and 2007
so not sure how much its worth today

There is actually an Audio "Blue Book" out there. If you go to Audiogon.com I believe you can subscribe to the Blue Book for one 12 months, one month...or maybe even for one lookup (sorry, I can't recall). Anyway, if you haven't already found it...that's the place to find out.

Website is: AUDIOGON CLICK HERE

Good luck!

That's a tough one, kmarei. I'll bet there's a parts bin somewhere full of those power switch covers looking for good homes...I guess you could start at nakamichi.com and find out if anyone is at the other end of that website. If so, they may have some advice for you.
Unfortunately, that's the main problem with owning or buying a 20+ year old piece of equipment. Manufacturers tend to stop supporting them after a few years. Good luck!

value varies a loy
i saw some on ebay sell for over $1000, the one on there now is asking $1300!
i guess with older equipment it's mainly based on how many there are for sale at any one point.
i sold the pre-amp, but still looking for a buyer for the tuner and ap

What do you think of $550 including the tuner?
Does that sound fair?
I know the husband of one of my wife's friends wants it
