“I want to sell my used CDs, DVDs or Blu-Rays. What is the procedure?”

We can take a look at your CDs or DVDs Mon-Sat: 11am–6pm & Sun: Noon–4pm. The final price we offer is based on artist, title, condition, and our stock. We don’t purchase items without their original artwork and case. We don’t buy bootlegs. Sorry, we do not quote prices over the phone. Oh, and we need a valid New York State license or I.D. from you when you sell us stuff. We’re done now.

“I want to sell my VHS or cassette tapes. What is the procedure?”

Feel free to bring them in for us to take a look. Please keep in mind that these items are sold in the store for between $1 and $2 so they are not going to bring you the big bucks you might be looking for.

Have some stereo components you don’t use anymore? We buy used turntables, receivers, cd players, etc… We buy, sell and repair all sorts of audio equipment.
