Neil is trying to re-invent a wheel which is already here.
Fiio production http://www.fiio.com.cn/ is very popular among an audiophiles and people who like a good quality of sound.
They really know how to make a good and affordable audio devices.
Now try to beat that performance/price.

True. And their new X5 already looks like something Pono still wants to be:

He isn't, he's just figured out a way to make more money wink.gif

And in the process, perhaps make sure he will definitely not be forgotten by the time he's gone, as the ones who will not then be able to name one of his songs, will at least recall the time he tried to topple MP3 off its throne with that toblerone-like, expensive thingy.

And to think the term 'iPod killer' at least, has been in use way back in the noughties:

The author of this article isn't pulling any punches with his criticism of Neil Young and the Pono. He's calling out the Pono effort for the profiteering and snake-oil that is likely behind the effort.

Thanks for sharing the link, LedHed8. I think the author makes a very strong argument about the redundant nature of Neil Young's Pono. So, nope, no Pono for me. Not to sound at all saintly (hear hear, Pono is Hawaiian for "righteous"), I'm always happy to righteously support my favourite independent artists on Bandcamp, buying their music in various high quality formats. They aren't 24/192 masters or other silly so-called ultra-high resolution audio formats but they sound brilliant on my Klipsch Image One headphones, thank you very much.

I'll wait for the Beats Audio version. That'll sound really great.

Neil Young's Twitter account hacked.

Let it be said that this "SLUT FOR THE D" person is way cooler than the real Neil Young, especially for not talking about any of this Poon nonsense.
