McIntosh Open Grateful Dead Exhibit at Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
Cleveland, OH, April 11, 2012 - Former 'Dead' drummer, Mickey Hart, took part in the exclusive McIntosh reception for the "Grateful Dead: The Long, Strange Trip" exhibition at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH.
In 1969, McIntosh engineers were instrumental in creating the sound system the Dead and other groups utilized at Woodstock. In 1974, McIntosh created the Dead's legendary "Wall of Sound" - a mega stage system that utilized 28,800 watts of McIntosh amplifiers power. This system paved the way for today's stadium-size audio systems and home theater systems and helped raise audiences' expectations of sound quality at concerts. Photos by Laura Blake.
