There actually $1800 on ebay. You got a great deal back in the day.
Honestly, I don't know if it is really worth that much but hey, market is what market does.
I got it at Roger Sound Labs. I was broke, just bought my first nedw car, a VW Fox and saw it sitting there. Even though we all new that CD's were taking over and digital was all the rage, I just had to have it, so I put I put it on my cc. I said is this like Luxman's dragon? Salesman said yes. very quickly, I learned that expensive tapes sounded pretty much the same as cheap ones, so I stopped buying metal and those Maxell XL II tapes and would buy bottom of the line Sony high bias tapes.A friend of mine borrowed it and actually was able to record 20hz tones from a signal generator. This was surprising as cassette has a hard time recording that low.
I also have a couple of Harmon Kardon cd491's and those sound great too. I have two pretty rare JVC nr 50 boxes which have Dolby B, C AND super anrs. JVC never made a deck as good as the Luxman k-03 of CD491 with super anrs, they really sound great with it. The HXpro gives the CD491 the edge when it comes to bottom feeder tapes (like Maxwell UH ferric).
