AverageAmericanGuy: People were not meant to hear music with such clarity. People need to hear snaps and pops in that shiat.
ChrisDe: Did Neil Young lose all his money? If not, why doesn't he invest his own?
JasonOfOrillia: Needs more barn.
jtown: Slight problem with the concept. If I want a portable audio device, it's because I plan to be listening to music on the go. If I'm on the go, there's background noise. If there's background noise, "audiophile quality" equipment is pointless.
ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: Seriously, I waited for someone to top the 160GB iPod Classic for years.
GibbyTheMole: That... is impossible. A suck pair of headphones will not be magically made flat-response when plugged into this thing.
HindiDiscoMonster: 192k/24bit source material... several major labels either archiving or having archived their material in that format, reference quality DAC and OPAMP, etc... however, there some questions as well:1. will it be tied to DRM?2. will it therefore only be able to be played on an 'official' Pono player?
RockofAges: bbqsandwich: This will pair nicely with the 99-cent earbuds I bought off eBay./straight from Guangdong; skip the middle man!*cringe*Not an audiophile, but damn, man. Buy a $50-$100 pair of Sennheisers. You must not enjoy music.
ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: Crap design, not enough space. Seriously, I waited for someone to top the 160GB iPod Classic for years.
ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: Crap design, not enough space. Seriously, I waited for someone to top the 160GB iPod Classic for years./Gave up and just stream everything for portable music
kroonermanblack: how much of it do you really listen to with any regularity which can't be beat by 'ok, 1st of the month, let's throw off some of this, and throw on some of this'?
Marine1: a guy who hasn't been relevant to charted modern music since the 1970s
poot_rootbeer: kroonermanblack: how much of it do you really listen to with any regularity which can't be beat by 'ok, 1st of the month, let's throw off some of this, and throw on some of this'?The way I obsess over my music, that once-monthly review process could end up eating up half my day. It's not very effective.I like never having to think about what I do and don't have accessible. (Although if it comes to it -- maybe when 128GB solid-state devices become affordable -- I'll compromise and do without most of my bootleg live recordings and all the tracks that still have zero plays.)
lindseyp: 192/24 files are great for mastering/ archiving, although they are overkill for the human ear
