PonoMusic – The Scam?

Why push back against 24/192? Because it’s a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist, a business model based on willful ignorance and scamming people. – Xiph.org

Myself? I’ll be glad if people just start listening to CD Audio again. High Fidelity Audio (HFA) is not going to be there when you’re listening through low fidelity hardware. You’d need a whole system change to have the real experience. And trust me, it’s gonna cost you thousands more than what that Pono player was.

I’m not going into the tech bits here. But you might gain some knowledge about the hoax which claims Pono will change your listening pleasures. Read this and tell me what you think.

Seriously. Start listening to WAV or AIFF files in your digital audio player and you’ll be fine. The hardwares you find in market today are primed for this resolution playback anyway..
