    Value of Symphony Meridien?...

    We still have an old Avid Symphony here (Meridien), it's time to let it go.....

    Is there a fair market value for it? Searching online, it's hard to find evidence of Meridiens changing hands since 2007.

    We have a G4 dual-2GHz, the boards, I/O box with SDI, and a couple of Digi 888 audio boxes. Was thinking of listing them for $200.

    If it doesn't cost you to get rid of it you will have done well :-)

    Even the next generation on have limited value now.

    In the "old days" this legacy equipment would have value.  The only major improvements were with speed. 

    With all of the HD camera and project formats that change all of the time, older systems that can't use the newer technologies are virtually worthless, unless you can find someone whose needs are filled by exactly that package.

    I recall reading posts here last year fromJeanna Beker, who if I remember correctly, was running a couple Meridian systems at a non-profit organization.  Perhaps your old system can find a happy home with her?
