As many of you may remember, DESIGN AUDIO VIDEO in Tyler /
Whitehouse, TX, was once owned by David Baskin, a long time AUDIOGON
subscriber, who sadly passed away from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) in September
of 2015. David’s home / business was located
approximately 4.5 miles South of town on a spacious property with 2 beautiful,
stone and brick buildings. One of course
is their home, which includes a dynamic Theater on its own. The other building however was David’s High-End,
DEMO Theater designed for various product demonstrations.
In May of 2016, I was blessed to be able to purchase the
company from his amazing wife Keri. Last
month, she decided to sell their property and asked if I would help her list
the High-End equipment in the DEMO Theater, here on AUDIOGON.
You should know that I do NOT own this equipment…It belongs to Keri Baskin.
With all of that said, ALL
prices herein have been approved by Keri. Any and All “Realistic” offers will be given to her for her final approval. Your payments, should you wish to purchase any
of these items, should be made to her…NOT me.
With that said, she will accept: Certified
Check ONLY (NO PAYPAL !!!)
All equipment has been re-packaged in it’s Original boxes
with Original Protective Packaging. No
PLEASE NOTE the
Timeline: David was diagnosed with
Lou Gehrig’s Disease in 2010. He began designing
his DEMO Theater in 2011 (?) and it was completed in 2013 (?). As you can easily imagine, he was constantly
changing/upgrading equipment. All of the
pieces herein are the culmination of a great deal of ongoing research /
matching and represent David’s ideal Theater at the time of his passing in
I give you this timeline to underscore the Fact that by the
time David had finished his Theater, the progression of his disease had forced
him to completely forego active selling / working with home builders in ’14 and
‘15, due to being confined to his motorized chair and eventually being bed-ridden.
The company was able to survive due to his wife Keri, his Excellent reputation
and training of 2 very competent Technicians.
According to Keri, from the time the Theater was finished until his
passing, David had no more than 5 to 7 builders
drive out to their property and visit the DEMO Theater for demonstration.
TRANSLATION: This equipment is very much LIKE NEW….Almost NO usage at
all. Additionally, with the exception of
the REVEL Rhythm2 Subs, ALL equipment listed is still current from each of the
Due to AUDIOGON’s selling model, I will need to list each
item separately. However, below is the Complete
List of Equipment from David’s DEMO Theater.
In addition, I will eventually list all of the Cabling as well.
Should you find something here that you like, ALL PAYMENTS
are to be made to Keri Baskin. She will

Thank you for taking the time to read Keri’s story…..
My very sincere regards,
From JBL Website:
The SK2-3300 is a compact 3-way high-performance
LCR loudspeaker built upon the same technology used in the acclaimed Project
K2S9900, one of the most advanced and sophisticated loudspeakers in the world
today. A 3-inch beryllium diaphragm compression driver mated to a 100° x 60°
Bi-Radial® horn delivers high-frequencies with lifelike dynamics and startling
realism while an ultra-high frequency 1-inch beryllium diaphragm compression
driver with a 60° x 30° Bi-Radial horn recreates critical air and spaciousness.
Two 10-inch Aqua-Plas™-coated woofers each with dual 3-inch edge-wound voice
coils, Neodymium motor structures and cast aluminum frames add serious punch
and depth to the already potent combination of HF and UHF horns to reproduce
music and movie soundtracks with the lowest distortion and flattest frequency
response possible. The SK2-3300 can be used either as an LCR loudspeaker or as
the companion center channel to the Project K2 S9900 or Project Everest DD66000
Probably the biggest surprise with the JBL Synthesis SK2-3300 LCR
was the choice to have them THX Ultra2 certified. According to THX:
THX Ultra2 Certified products
bring the cinematic experience to larger home theaters, 3,000 cubic feet in
size, with a viewing distance of 12 feet or greater from the screen.
