We're loving the high quality red cherry finish in addition to the absolutely sweet McIntosh sound they produce.
Fully tested in our lab to preform at McIntosh original specifications, and then auditioned in our listening room for longer than usual!
Each speaker can handle up to 350W (!), so if you'd like some amplifier pairing recommendations we'd love to help. Simply click here to call or send us a message.
• Acoustic Edge-Hole Elimination
An edge-hole is a severe dip in the high frequency response of a speaker system, caused by the relative distance of the dome tweeter to the edge of the speaker cabinet. If the distance to the edge of the cabinet is the same on both sides of the dome tweeter, cancellation of the sound occurs at a specific frequency. McIntosh guards against this phenomenon with a special tweeter mounting that eliminates the edge-hole effect. A specially designed tweeter bezel and perforated grille, mask the tweeter mounting to maintain a symmetrical appearance.
• High Power Handling
The Loudspeaker Elements and crossover components of the LS340 are all chosen for use with powerful amplifiers up to 350 watts.
• High Efficiency
The Loudspeaker Elements used in the LS340 Loudspeaker System have also been designed for high efficiency. As a result any McIntosh Power Amplifier, even our smallest, will provide satisfying room filling sound.
• Automatic Overload Protection
The LS340 has built-in Loudspeaker Element Protection in the form of three automatic resetting solid-state devices as a part of the crossover network.
• Flared Acoustic Bass Port
The Acoustic Bass Port in the LS340 has flared front and rear openings to eliminate air movement noise.
More on these speakers from McIntosh:
The McIntosh LS340 Loudspeaker System is designed for Home Theater and Music Reproduction. It is a three-way system with two 8 inch LD/HPI woofers, one 6-1/2 inch LD/HP midrange and one 1 inch dome tweeter. The LS340 is designed to work as a Left or Right (Main) Loudspeaker in a Music System, or as a Main or Surround Loudspeaker in a Home Theater System.
The LS340 Loudspeaker performance is equivalent to the quality of McIntosh's legendary line of Amplifiers, Preamplifiers, Signal Processors and Signal Sources, without imparting distortion or coloration of its own. It also complements the capabilities and the remarkably low distortion of McIntosh Power Amplifiers.
Many of todays loudspeakers are designed only for Home Theater applications. Not so with the LS340. It is also designed for the accurate reproduction of music. Motion pic- ture sound effects, explosions, screams, and vehicle crashes require a wide dynamic range and high sound levels. These sounds are such that a speaker system having moderate distortion would reproduce them with little audible difference. This is not true with the reproduction of music. Music is by nature and definition harmonious. To reproduce it accurately, all forms of distortion, both harmonic and intermodulation, must be kept to a minimum. This has been the result of the design of the new McIntosh LS340 Loud- speaker System. Each loudspeaker element and crossover component has been carefully designed for durability, efficiency, and above all, low distortion. The McIntosh LS340 Loudspeaker System will reproduce music accurately and function as an excellent Home Theater Loudspeaker.

WHO WE ARE
SkyFi Audio is a small startup business specializing in the purchase, reconditioning, and reselling of select high-end audio equipment. We only buy equipment the we admire and are passionate about. No mid-fi, no gimmicks, no junk.
Each piece of equipment is cosmetically restored and fully tested in our well-equipped lab by an engineer with 30+ years of experience in the HiFi world. If it does not meet or exceed the original manufactures specifications, it will not be sold. We are very selective about the equipment we purchase, focusing on mostly analog, high-build quality, American, and European built units.
Through our sister company, which is an authorized dealer for McIntosh, Audio Research, Sonus Faber, ClearAudio, Pro-Ject Audio Systems, and Sony ES, we have access to OEM parts, service, and support. If you are local and looking for new equipment from the above-mentioned manufacturers, please drop us a line as we can arrange both sales and professional installation in the tri-state area.
We do not accept or review any offers that do not go through the official Audiogon system. We have too many items for sale and it’s nearly impossible to keep track of offers outside of the official system. Please don’t message, email, or text any offers.
If you do not see a “Make an Offer” button, it means we are not considering any offers on that item.
We prefer working through PayPal which allows you to use a credit card or bank transfer. We do not charge extra for any payment fees if you purchase the item at the asking price. You can also send us a personal check (which will need to clear before shipping), certified check, money order, or wire transfer. International clients without access to PayPal should use a bank wire transfer.
If you are picking up an item we do not accept PayPal. You must pay in person with cash, certified or bank check, or wire transfer. If you make a PayPal payment and are picking up the item, it will be returned.
TRADE IN POLICY
We accept trade-ins of equal or lesser value under certain conditions. Simply ask and let us know the exact model, condition, and the accessories that are included (such as the original box, remote, cables, manual, etc.). We will only consider high-end equipment from mainstream manufacturers such as McIntosh, Mark Levinson, Audio Research, Krell, etc. and will typically pass on displays, projectors, receivers, dated surround processors, and mid-fi equipment of any type. We will offer a fair value for your equipment, but keep in mind we are running a business and will need to be able to resell the equipment at a profit after investing a great deal of time and resources in testing, certifying, repairing, cleaning, and packaging the incoming equipment. If you are looking for top dollar we suggest attempting to sell it directly to an end user on your own.
SELL US YOUR GEAR (Working or Broken)
We will also purchase your used or broken gear and arrange pickup if you are in our local market. Just drop us a note for a quote but be sure to include the condition and what is included.
HOW TO VISIT US
We are currently operating from a residence in Ridgewood, NJ. You are welcome to make an appointment if there is a piece of equipment you would like to see in operation before or after purchase. We have a well-equipped, dedicated listening room with tons of equipment of all makes and models. We are not a store, so please don’t make an appointment if you are just curious as to how a speaker or piece of equipment sounds. In essence, no tire kickers please.
If you are in NYC and cannot make it out to Ridgewood, we can arrange pickup in Union Square (14th Street) after the purchase. You can call or text 646.852.2073 with any questions or to schedule an appointment. We can also arrange to install, calibrate, and tune the gear in your listening room if you are local to the area. This is super useful when purchasing large speakers or heavy amplifiers. It is also great for ensuring your new turntable is setup correctly in its final resting place.
