Everything has gone up on ePay. I think though that it actually helps to be a machine with good specs and some degree of desirability and not so common.
The little odd, cheap consumer machines I tend to collect will always be semi-worthless.
BTW, the least expensive machine that theoretically will play TP tapes with the proper EQ has been going for more money as well, but not as much as a Nagra T !

I sold my super mint t-audio 10 years ago for $3200. It had
56 hours total run time. Came from a huge collection(mostly
Cameras) and the owner only owned one tape(Sinatra). I also
Purchased a Studer A80 1/2 inch two track that had 8 hours on the
Clock.

Better investments than most.

At this rate, I am holding on to two perfect Nagra Ts for future vacation home in Hawaii...
