Not uncommon for those CD changers to die. The one in my 2004 was shot when I bought it.
Like cardoc said, a good double-DIN stereo isn't expensive to get. Crutchfield will give you the required adapters and great instructions (which are also posted here somewhere) as well. Changing the stereo is a piece of cake in the 2nd generation Outbacks.
I dunno about it being worth 6k, my 2004 L.L. Bean with 50k fewer miles and an H6 engine would probably not fetch a whole lot more than that on a private sale. But, regardless, I think you did get a good price if it's mechanically solid.
