CDs and Boxset clearance
« on: February 15, 2016, 04:25:26 PM »
     Because of my studying and some personal issue in the last six months, I don't have time for CDs anymore. So I think it's a best solution for my collection is sell them to other music lover.
     All the discs are on like new condition, with some exception (I will noticed this). My price based on the lowest price for used items in amazon.de market place. And if you buy more than 150 Euro, you can get discount 10%.
     Payment by Paypal is prefered, I will eat the Paypal fee. It provides safety for us.
     Shipping cost will be negotiated. I live in Karlsruhe, Germany, so if you want, you can come and pick up.
   

     Here is some of my collection for sale,

Ouch, it hurts to see someone have to liquidate such a fine collection.

 I forget to mention, if anyone need verification about condition of items, please send a private message, I will provide some photos.

Ouch, it hurts to see someone have to liquidate such a fine collection.
Thanks, Daverz. I am so sad to let them go, but letting them cover by dust is even more painful.

 I have list all of 360 CDs I want to sell in one excel file (.xls extension), but because GMG forums do not accept attaching file .xls, so I must compress to zip file. If you want any CDs, please PM me . Thanks

Mai

Trung, I'm curious how this sale went.  Did many GMGers purchase anything? I am considering doing something similar, but it never seemed to me this thread got much attention.
It's all good...

I bought a bunch of discs as both trung and I are in Germany. As I am trying to cut down on purchases myself and already had quite a bit of the ones offered, I did not get as many as I would have otherwise.

Unfortunately selling CDs is a slow and tedious business. This is the downside of them being cheap and plentiful.
Another downside is that shipping costs become prohibitive except for domestic trading. Already to Austria or Switzerland I have to pay EUR 3,70 postage for a single disc...
And the few rare items that might yield something have very few potential buyers. I sold a live from Japan disc with Richter a few months ago on amazon for about 15 Euros but then Amazon takes a large fee out of that and one still has to be willing to wait for half a year or even far longer to find a buyer. But amazon marketplace simply is the fastest way to offer something and the outreach is better than anything else.

I've sold a few things on Ebay.  Generally it goes in a couple of weeks.  They take a 10 percent cut, and then I have to pay 5 percent to Paypal. And then shipping, of course  :(
It's all good...

I sold about 50-70 items (mostly CDs) on Ebay ca. 2002-2007. It was pretty good back then and the fees were smaller than amazon marketplace. But now Ebay feels crowded (I also have to avoid it or I will buy too much there) and selling at amazon is so much more comfortable with pictures, descriptions etc. usually provided already and simple handling afterwards that I am willing to put up with their fees.

It's often hardly worth the effort but I have no decent 2nd hand dealers who would be buying close to me and I have hardly anyone in my acquaintance to whom I could give unwanted discs as gifts.

I see. thanks for the info! Actually, I will only be selling boxes--large boxes.  Maybe 30 or so. 
   I thought that only real retail type places sold on Amazon.  I had no idea regular folks could sell their extra stuff there.  Good to know! Thanks.

... I have hardly anyone in my acquaintance to whom I could give unwanted discs as gifts.

That's how I try and get rid of my unneeded discs - but one of the main benefiting friends was the person who introduced me to classical music a few years back, so he has lots of what I am giving away, so I know that problem ...
Tornate, o cari baci,
a ritornarmi in vita,
baci al mio cor digiun esca gradita!
Voi di quel dolce amaro
per cui languir m’è caro,
di quel dolce non meno
nettare che veleno
pascete i miei famelici desiri,
luci in cui dolci provo anco i sospiri!

I have a friend with a smallish collection who wants to keep it small and whom I meet about twice a year, so I gave him a few discs occasionally. And my brother's girlfriend has a little fondness for some piano music after she accidentally watched the Chopin competition a few years ago; she also got  a few, but I cannot unload random stuff with them... ;)

To my knowledge everyone can register for selling at amazon marketplace. You have to check yourself though whether it works better for you than Ebay. As it has been years I sold anything on Ebay I am not even familiar with their current conditions and rules for sellers.

For me the advantage at amazon is that I can put up something for sale with a few clicks in a minute or two and it stays on offer forever, fees only due when I actually sell something. Fortunately I never had trouble with a buyer; this is probably always bad for small scale private sellers because I guess both amazon and Ebay would side with the buyers who are thought of as main customers.

Of course, by far the best thing is to sell on such a website as this one as there are not going to be any fees but paypal... but unfortunately this will be very slow... There is also a surprising number of listeners who will usually not buy used.

But I think the main reasons that the market for re-selling is very poor are factor (that are of course good when buying on that 2nd hand market - as I am doing more of that I can hardly complain).
Cheap boxes, people ripping discs to harddiscs and selling the original CDs, and collectors dying (or moving into retirement homes) and their heirs practically giving away the collections to professional used dealers who then can offer discs for a couple of bucks because they got them for a few cents.

As good a place as any: does anyone have a copy of the Sony collection of Charles Rosen's Columbia and Epic recordings for sale? Thanks.

Sorry, poco, cannot help. I got mine for a song when it came out, and now see that the price has shot through the roof anywhere I search. Bizarre!  ???

Yep, that's the problem. Sony withdrew it without notice, and now the available copies are astronomical.

yeah. I hesitated too long because I already owned several of the discs I was most interested in (late Beethoven, Goldbergvar., Schumann). One can only hope that it comes back (some of those boxes did but maybe Rosen is not quite a big enough name for that, compared to e.g. Rubinstein or so).
