McIntosh and the Grateful Dead Celebrate the Final Tour of Dead & Co.
What a long powerful trip it’s been. McIntosh collaborates with the Grateful Dead to commemorate Dead & Co.'s The Final Tour 2023.
McIntosh’s relationship with the Grateful Dead spans five decades. In 1974, McIntosh amplifiers shaped music history by powering the Grateful Dead’s legendary Wall of Sound. Forty-eight McIntosh MC2300 amplifiers delivered 28,000 Watts of pure McIntosh power to create a truly groundbreaking sound system that immortalized the Grateful Dead as a live act in the annals of rock history.
In a continuation of that relationship forged decades ago, McIntosh will power Dead & Co’s Final Tour 2023 concert intermissions with a custom audio system. Audiences will enjoy an unmatched high-fidelity sound experience listening to vinyl played through a McIntosh MT10 Precision Turntable and a C12000 Preamplifier. These intermissions will be broadcasted in-stadium via jumbotrons during each concert, as well as to fans and audiences around the world through a livestream of each performance.
