If I buy a tamohawk....

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Will it hold its value? Will I be able to resell it for like 275 in 6 months (assuming I take good care of it). I think I'm going to buy one just to compare to my go-vibe v5s. If there isnt much difference the tomahawk will go.

I have a Red Tomahawk. With 175 hours burned in so far. I really like it with my burned in MS-1's. To me it was a score, plus with the service of Ray, you can't go wrong.

Good luck with your tests. A better question is who will by your Go-Vibe

Seriously, I think you will do fine either way. Go for it!

50 dollar investment VS 250-300. I'm not too worried about the go-vibe lol + Norm isnt making the go-vibe v5s's anymore and the v6's are 100. So I'm sure someone would be willing to grab it from me if they're looking to spend half the price of the v6. I just like the tomahawk because it looks so rad! haha.

I wonder if there really is any big difference?

Man I've had the same set of batteries since the 3 week of May. The maintenance is almost nil and it is sounding better everyday. Good stuff, there should be no worries. One question though, If you are using mostly IEM's or low resistance stuff great, if not GO HORNET or AE-2.

It really depends on on what is still hot when you want to sell it? I am sure most would agree, however, that RSA's stuff is such great quality, there will always be someone who will be able to appreciate it and therefore value it. Value in an open market is dependent upon availability versus demand!

depends on a lot,

mostly the current owners not lowering their prices to do a quick sale and leaving the f/s thread prices IN THE AD AFTER it has sold.
this way someone looking to buy will know ahead of time not and even try the low balls (though they still will). call it price fixing in a weird audio way, but if one owner sells his at $275 and leaves the price in the ad then the next owner can follow and etc..etc..

Ray having issues with suppliers of parts, for example the last hornet issue brought Hornet up to a $300 or even higher mark. people who got in on the $300 entry price could walk out even Steven.. in other words knowing when to sell is very important like with anything else. again one must keep the prices in the ad's to keep the prices up and other owners succeeding in a good sale..

How much demand and how many are available at one time or how quick one can buy new compared to buying new, something like above only a little more into how long it takes Ray to ship a new one or how long of a wait a new customer must face. (that was a long sentence..probably like most in my grammar not correct.)
Ray is pretty quick so don't bet your lucky stars on him having a long wait time, if you had a Xin or some other product that is known for having longer wait times then you would easily have more interested buyers..which means you have a better chance at resale close to what you want.

If Ray comes out with another version (like the Hornet to Hornet M) then that may help or hurt..but again I would not bet on your lucky stars for it at all..really

If you want more of an investment of the amp then the smartest is always buy used..anything works out better in the after sale with price this way..well anything audio.

p.s.
I think looking for resale value before you buy any audio product is almost an oxymoron..should not share the same sentence..even if its a long sentence like some of mine here...hehe

You stand a decent chance of it holding its value but you really need to burn in the Tomahawk to get its true sound like 800 hrs.

Totally agree, specially on the 800 hours. Mine is closer to 1,000 hours and it sounds so sweet.

Yesterday I thought of selling it because I have way to many portables (6) one of which is an SR71. Still thinking about it, hard to make a decision.
