those were the prices as of 1991. what a dealer pays you for used items and what he shud sell them for.

I have a couple of these books, 1987 and 1990 I think. The prices shown have always been on the low side, even when the books were current. Apparently Orion surveys prices from dealers and audio resellers; a fellow I know used to participate. There has always been an incentive for survey participants to quote low prices, as the books are often shown to potential sellers to establish value of their goods.

Orion is still producing the book...

Hello Steve

So the bums stack the deck against you so they can make more at resale. What a racket.

absolutely true. my dealer goes strictly by the book. when I sell something to him, he turns around and sticks it in the shelf for 3X markup

So who's got a current Orion Bluebook? Does it still cover the older JBL components?

I've got the current (2002 sitting next to me at home, '05 at my desk at work and '06 at the purchaser's desk). I'm not going to scan them 'cause we're subscribed to them & I don't need any hassle, but I they do still list speaker systems as far back as the '60s (about 8 1/2 pages in '02), and about 2/3rds of one page of raw drivers.
