    You can list it on ebay and have it as pick up locally and receive cash in hand instead of paypal.

    I'm surprised you didn't get any good hits from Craigslist. But yeah, you can do money order / cashier's check only with Ebay.

    Depending on where you live maybe your local newspaper hosts an online marketplace.

    I has an optical in that you can connect to your iMac it then encodes the 5.1 signal into Dolby Headphone which emulates surround sound in headphones and it is amazing that you can get awesome surround sounds out of a pair of stereo headphones! :)

    Why are you afraid to use Paypal?

    I stopped using ebay for anything high priced because of the paypal holds now. There was something about buyer approval release. So they can damage it and reject it. How can I prove it? Are they going to mail it back? Who pays to get it back to me? What am I going to do after they damaged it now?

    I don't blame the person. I sold an iPhone and got stuck in the paypal holding pattern. It made me nervous especially when I had to wait some time for the money to be released.
