I bought a new house and the homeowners just emailed offering to leave behind their media setup in the basement.
It consists of:
Samsung UN55D8000Y 1080P LED TV
Bose Lifestyle 38 surround sound system
They appear (and appeared, during the walkthrough) to be in good to very good condition, and the owner's have kept the house in mostly immaculate condition, so I'm not excessively worried about damage or anything.
They're asking $1000. For the cost and age of the system, is this worth it? It's convenient in that the TV is already mounted (factor in TV mounting bracket cost, etc) as well as the surround sound system. The TV appears to have been a fairly expensive TV (~$3500) at the time it was new, but its a 2011 model, I think. It's old enough that I don't think it's actively being sold anywhere, so I can't compare prices. The Bose system is selling for a variety of prices on eBay, from $275 to like $700.
I've never been knowledgable about electronics and how quickly the tech improves/the hardware itself wears out. Not sure what my money could get me right now (like if an equivalent TV is $300 now, or whatever). I anticipate the only real options here are to counter ($300 maybe?) or to refuse it and probably purchase an equivalent setup at the $1000 prince range. Any advice appreciated! Thanks
maybe i'm streaming terrible dj right now if i am its here
