The Wall of Sound was an enormous public address system designed specifically for the Grateful Dead's live performances by audio engineer Owsley "Bear" Stanley. Used in 1974, the Wall of Sound fulfilled the band's desire for a distortion-free sound system that could also serve as its own monitoring system. The Wall of Sound was the largest concert sound system built at that time. [ #DeadHead #psychedelic #60s #70s ]

McIntosh Laboratory helped the Grateful Dead achieve their signature sound at concerts as part of the band's "Wall of Sound," whose artifacts will be featured in a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum exhibit.
