Just redid our home theatre/screen/receiver.

Listing for sale has brought nothing.

What else to do with an amp and dvd player that still work right?

Am anti-throw-away; there's enough trash in the world.

Have tried CL so far, deep into its grove now.

Been a long while since I did anything with ebay due to listing fees, shipping, etc.

But it might be the way to go.

The dvd player is very high quality, but its not blueray. So this might be an obstacle for many.

You posted it on Craiglist as giving it away for free and no one took it? Then take it to a recycling center.

Was not posted for free. Priced cheap. Who knows, sometimes people think they're not getting much for items that are priced too low -- unless they drive it there!

Brand new Blu-ray and home theater systems are pretty cheap. Not many people buy used. You should find a recycling center.

You may want to put a garage sale at your house or go to a flea market (if available) to sell your items.

Give it to a family member, friend or relative that could use it but can't afford one. I do it all the time... it's a win win. Surely you don't need the few bucks you might someday get out of it.

Had to have the tv shipped off, couldn't give it away. Was a monster to get out of the house. Had to tow it.

Sold the receiver on CL. The cd player & remote are still for sale.

Does the US not have e-waste recycling? People will come to your home in Canada and take away any free electronic that you post because they get paid by the recyclers. Same from any metal/copper/etc.
