If you want to put up an auction to see exactly how much money you can get out of the equipment, consider Ebay. A seven day auction will yield the most money you can get out of the auction (and some eBay fees too.)

Take your equipment to a local charity and ask for a tax deduction for your taxes. While this isn't cash, it is money you can save on your taxes which is a win-win.
