Neil Young to Launch Pono Music Through Kickstarter
A press release [via Computer Audiophile/Pitchfork] notes that the PonoMusic online store will "offer the finest quality, highest-resolution digital music from both major labels and prominent independent labels."
Of course, there's also a portable PonoPlayer to house the music. It has 128GB of memory and features an LCD touchscreen interface. It will cost $399 from PonoMusic.com, and discounted pre-orders will be available through Kickstarter. The PonoMusic store will also sell recommended earbuds and headphones.
"It's about the music, real music," Young said in a statement. "We want to move digital music into the 21st century and PonoMusic does that. We couldn't be more excited about bringing PonoMusic to the market."
Neil Young will be discussing Pono at SXSW on March 11.
