Approx value of the Akai DR16?

I have an Akai DR16 from my old studio. I plan on pulling tracks off it in the next month or so and getting rid of it.

Is there still interest in these old machines? Anyone know their current value?

I'm trying to figure out if it is worth selling or just using as a rack filler until I need more room.

It's worth selling only if you really want to get rid of it to free up the space in your rack.

Things like the AKAI DR8 and DR16 and the E-mu Darwin seem to go for bargain prices eclipsed only by old ADAT machines these days. You might only get a few hundred bucks for it, but if you really never, ever use it anymore that still might be worth it.
