Neil Young claims he was working on an audiophile iPod with Steve Jobs

Recommended Posts

Not sure which is worse, that ponosucks website layout or the fact that some idiot decided to make a DAP in the shape of a triangular prism, and a bunch of other idiots along the way didn't stop it from happening. Someone should make one in the shape of a horse and call it Ponee

I purchased a Pono player at the Kickstarter phase. The damn thing sounds really good, I guess the Hansen engineering had something to do, but other than the couple of Herbie Hancock albums this edition had loaded, I haven't been tempted to buy any of the Pono's music. Since it has a big capacity due to the support of microSD cards up to 128GB, I use it when away from home for a few days. Not using it on daily commutes, the shape is just nuts and very impractical. I wish they had made it in a regular flat prism shape.

Really poor timing on old Neil's part. Ten minutes after he comes out with a stupidly shaped (if great sounding) DAP, phones start supporting USB DACs and there's Red Book streaming and even rectangular DAPs mostly become small paperweights. Oops
