Pre-Order Neil Young’s PonoPlayer for $399 Dylan Duarte March 11, 2014 I’m a big fan of artists and professionals taking responsibility for the way people experience their craft. Numerous golfers design golf courses. Filmmaker Michael Moore has designed a theater in his hometown of Flint, Michigan. Then there’s the PonoPlayer, Neil Young’s iPod competitor that’s designed to offer “studio master-quality digital music at the highest audio fidelity possible.” The device, which will be available for pre-order on March 15th for a hefty $399, comes equipped with 128GB of storage, memory card slot for further expansion, and an LCD touchscreen along with three buttons. The Pono was initially scheduled for release in 2013 before getting pushed back to this year. Upon launch, the device will be paired with the PonoMusic.com service. Long may it run. via The Verge Share This With The World!
