I asked the seller if boxes and accessories come with the receiver but there is none, just a manual and receipt.

That's getting pretty silly. Can't blame a guy for trying. The market is at it's peak right now. 10 years into the future and these things will be fetching a fraction of what they do now.

10 years ago they(almost all audio) was selling for WAY less than now. Why would those drop in price in the future?

You can ask whatever you want; whether it sells or not is a whole 'nother ball game.

Like anything and everything else- supply and demand, supply and demand.

Some of this stuff is lusted over due to fond memories or nostalgia. Once the folks who are purchasing this stuff stop buying, stop collecting and/or pass away then the huge demand for that particular gear will decrease.

I can guarantee you in another decade people will begin looking at the 80s gear as vintage and it will see a big uptick in value. I am from a different era than most of the vintage folks on this board, so I see things a bit differently. Maybe I am wrong, only time will tell.

There is no way to really know. I remember everyone saying that real estate is a great investment as they don't make land anymore and homes will always be more expensive, tell that to all the people who purchase homes! Just go to Florida where homes selling for half a million and now you can't sell them for 150 thousand.

It's happened in almost every nostalgia-based market. As the target audience gets older and moves to fixed incomes or, well, you know... the demand decreases dramatically.

It's not like real estate where even a burst bubble will eventually recover, because they're right- you only have so much land, with an increasing population. With vintage gear, yes you only have so much of it but you have shrinking demand. You never really get beyond supply and demand. The only way price could keep going up is if somebody hid or destroyed units at a rate faster than the market will be shrinking. There will probably be a bubble then a gradual decline then a falling off of a cliff of prices.

And vintage gear is very much a product of a generation. Yes, there are younger fans but they make up a small percentage of the buyers and their attachment to the gear isn't as inherent in who they are. They are also probably more easily persuaded to buy something else when the prices of vintage get insane, like this sale in question. That is a price tied to nostalgia and collectibility, it is not at all representative of what kind of performance you can get for that coin.
