McIntosh hosted a listening event for the new MT5 Turntable at New York City’s historic (and Jimi Hendrix-founded) Electric Lady Studios. The evening featured a variety of music played on the MT5, accompanied by discussion from the playlist’s curators – Questlove and John Varvatos.

- Guns N Roses – Sweet Child Of Mine
- Prince – Lady Cab Driver
