Neil Young’s Pono Raises $2.4 Million In 48 Hours On Kickstarter
Neil Young's campaign to fund Pono, a higher quality music player and download store, went live on Kickstarter on Tuesday. 48 hours later, Young had raised $2.4 million. Pono will play FLAC or ultra-high resolution recordings (192kHz/24 bit). "The difference between a PonoMusic digital file and an mp3 is about 30 times more data from which your player reconstructs the song," according to Young. Watch the intro video featuring an all star cast of musicians extolling the virtues on Pono.
