If you fully depreciate or expense your equipment on your tax returns then you've already declared under oath that it's present value is zero. There's no such thing as "holding value" on business equipment. If you sell it then you're supposed to recapture that depreciation and pay the appropriate tax on that gain.... not necessarily an appreciating asset. When we buy quality equipment for our business, we are investing in our business. I think the Bose models hold their value pretty well. They're a respected name. Yes, everything depreciates to some degree.
This is why businesses dispose of or donate fully depreciated goods rather than sell them.
