A retail sales display? How is the 7" LCD used and could it have any value in a home audio setup?

Yes, that's a retail point-of-purchase display sans Duet. The 7" monitor plays a 45 second flash piece that illustrates the concept of the Duet. (You can see the same flash piece on logitech.com, if you're interested).

It's a relatively inexpensive LCD display designed to play various media formats from a CF card. The audio out is generally pretty crappy and this one isn't a touch-screen so there's probably not much use for it.

Do things like this get labeled "Not for Resale" like the LPs at the
radio station were back decades ago when (1) I was a DJ and (2) radio
used LPs?

I think it's hilarious that the eBay seller has a reserve price on this, as though there's a lot of pent up demand for something that nobody (including the seller) even knows what it does.

Curious what the reserve was, I put in a bid for two dollars, and, well, I didn't meet the reserve. Pfff. Moving along now..
