What Makes Pono Music So Special?
As Pono explains, “CD lossless tracks have about 5 times the resolution of a typical compressed track sold today. At the high end of the Pono spectrum, 192kHz/24bit tracks have about 30 times more data to flawlessly reproduce the original analog music from the digital track. Pono couples this with the playback ability of the magical PonoPlayer, designed by Ayre Acoustics exclusively for Pono. The PonoPlayer transports you to a sublime musical experience, from the most delicate passages of a string quartet to the thunderous power of a heavy metal band. This portable audio player uses circuitry from Ayre’s own top-of-the-line products, costing tens of thousands of dollars, for unparalleled sound quality and unrivaled listening pleasure. The PonoPlayer supports multiple listening modes: personal or pair listening with headphones or earbuds, home-audio or in-car listening, as well a balanced mode for use with professional headphones or audio equipment.”
