Appears to be a lighting console, so your question would be better answered in the lighting forum.

They are more popular in Europe than the US.  As such it may be harder to get their true value here on the used market.

Yep, I own and use the Congo Kid variant of the console. They're not terribly popular in the States but I like mine.  Used...probably somewhere between 6 and 8k if you're talking the console with the fader wing, but it's really only worth what someone is willing to pay for it! Good luck with the sale!

It also depends on how old it is.  It is a matter of which operating system it is using, older versions were XP and the newer versions are Win7.  It would be worth a call to ETC with the serial number to see if it can run Cobalt.  I couldn't find any currently for sale at the usual places, however usedlighting.com DID have one with fader wing for sale for $ 2395 but it looks like it sold already.

IIRC any Congo console can run the Cobalt software, but the XP versions are certainly getting long in the tooth and only support one brand (if not model) of touch screen.

Depending on condition that could be a steal!

There's a recent review in the PSW product review forum.

And they look good, yes, but there are other factors that would affect the fair market price as already alluded to.  How old is the unit?  Is it running Cobalt or the obsolete Congo software.  Are there any peripherals included such as a case, monitor(s), etc.  All these things will influence the kind of money you can expect to get for this.  Most importantly, can you find a buyer?  As I discussed a little in my Congo Kid Review (thanks for the shoutout Dave), Congo/Cobalt desks are a rather niche console that doesn't see the widespread use and industry acceptance that products such as the IONs, Hogs, and GrandMAs do.  To the right person you could get a fancy sum, but it might take a little time and advertising to find them.  Good luck though!
