Neil Young's PonoMusic will soon blast 192KHz of music into your earholes.
Neil Young's PonoMusic service blew past its Kickstarter fundraising goal in one day. Are FLAC files the next wave in music? We also hear some jams from a cyborg drummer, and wake up to the sweet smells and sounds of the Bacon Alarm.
We've heard about Pono for years, and now the promised 2014 launch has been postponed.
Rocker says new audio format will debut in early 2014, along with a portable music player and a library of music in the format.
Offering both the FLAC-playing PonoPlayer and access to the PonoMusic online store, the rocker's campaign goal of $800,000 was easily surpassed.
Neil Young's Pono service has been in development for several years, but hi-res music fans are finally be able to purchase a first-edition PonoPlayer on Kickstarter for $200.
