Pono hit Kickstarter today with a bang. The retail pricing on the new high-resolution portable audio player was set at $400, but the first 100 early birds snapped it up at 50% off. And yes, all those slots are taken.
Next up is the 25% off bucket, and it looks like there’s no cap here.
A very nifty option for the player is the chromed-out, laser-etched signature editions, priced at $400. You can pick from a whole slew of bands to have engraved on your Pono.
Best news yet: Pono will play all your PCM-based (FLAC, ALAC, MP3, WAV, AIFF, AAC) files, but no word yet on DSD support ….
