For anyone who hasn't been living under a rock, you may have seen, read about or even invested in the Kickstarter campaign for the Pono music player. It's the product of musician Neil Young and his company, PonoMusic, that claims to restore magic to the listening experience of high-resolution digital music files. And it certainly has generated interest, with the first devices expected to ship next month.
But before you fork over the $1,100 asking price to be a Pono-er, there's one thing everyone should do: test drive it. Visit a few stores that carry it, like Fry's Electronics, and bring your regular music player along so you can compare the sound quality on both. You might be surprised at how much better it sounds.
