There is potentially more money to be made parting it out, but also more pain 
and suffering in dealing with questions, no-shows, removing specific bits, 
packing, shipping, etc. And then disposing of the carcass. The choice is yours.

As for which media: eBay has more potential buyers, but more hassle. Audifans 
gets a narrow sub-set of targeted potential buyers. Craigslist is in between. 
And nothing says you can't use all 3.
