I was cleaning out a closet last night and found these 3 items that I have had for a long time. the NAD 6240 deck won't play but it turns on. The Denon TU-450 works fine and the Sony TC-RX70ES works but only in reverse play mode. Can't attach pics due to the limit on file size.

I don't seem to be able to decrease the size of the file in my phone-S10+.

I'm guessing if they were in really good shape and presented well on eBay, you'd do well to net $150 for the bunch, but otherwise, the tuner looks like a typical thrift-store find, but they probably won't want to take in broken cassette decks. There's still a market for higher end 3-head, dual capstan models and professional portables, but not as much for more common 2-head models.

OK. Thanks. I thought maybe the Denon would be worth a bit, since it was made in Japan.

Those Denon's go for like $50 or less on ebay usually.
I had one ( I think mine was a 460) and actually liked it quite a lot. What I liked about it was in Auto, it switched between stereo and mono and did quieting for weak stations exactly as I would if I were doing it manually. At the time I had a large outdoor antenna and listened to a fair number of stations some near and some rather far off with variable signal strength.

It was a box of mostly air. Inside was a 4 inch square board with a chip based tuner and some op-amps. Now it actually worked and sounded quite good. But it won't have the value of some older complex Denon tuners.
