I deal with recycler salvage. HT is insane. I’ll bet I scrapped $100000.00 MSRP worth of stuff last year. Either dead or messed up and worthless (not worth fixing even if you could) Most working flips for $25-$100 with an occasional jewel TOTL or early vintage high end pushing into the $150+ range. Now the totally rediculous waste of a LOT of money is whole home systems. Crestron crap and AMX and ??? Network AV servers and AV over LAN. Custom programmed and installed. OMFG is that crap worthless. Most of that I just chop for metal salvage. $20000-$30000-$40000+ systems. People that buy that crap are just too frickin rich and totally asinine. Hell, I have remotes with built in iPads. I think the remotes were $1300! Just frickin burning the money.
