    But yes, a lot depends on how much a repair would be ... but even at a cost of 200 for repair she would still be quids in if the cosmetics are good .... certainly worth more than the 50 asked on Gumtree (with the tuner thrown in) - even if not working.
    I simply suggested she checks sold prices on Ebay and consider getting it repaired and re-advertise it.

    I got my Marantz CD63KI by contacting the seller (lovely elderly gent) and telling him it was worth a lot more than the 30 he was asking for it (he didn't know KI was different to SE) he was so grateful for my honesty he sold it to me for 95.

    Even if she didn't get it repaired and sold it 'as is' for spares or repair (with no returns), I'm betting she would do alright. The 'matching' (and working) tuner that she also has is also worth listing as a separate but concurrent item - last two in UK listings sold for 120 and 80. She can list them 'Collect only' which is essentially no different than Gumtree and no hassle with postage. Either way, much more than the original 50 ask.

    The choice is indeed hers to do with as she pleases ... but she didn't have that knowledge before so I applaud your action (and the other you describe)

    Pulling out a tweeter dome can usually be done within a minute or so. I use a small amount of tape (e.g. gorilla tape) carefully placed within the perimeter of the dome and easing it gently. It will pop out without risk of pulling the dome off totally.
