Neil Young has announced the launch of his new music service. The legendary singer-songwriter has announced that PonoMusic, an online music store and a playback device that he came up with, will hit the market through a Kickstarter campaign that launches on March 15th.
The service focuses on high fidelity digital audio playback, aiming for higher quality than what MP3s offer. The service will include its own music player and a desktop media management application which allows customers to download, manage and sync their music to their PonoPlayer or other high-resolution digital music devices.
Young said in a statement, "It's about the music, real music. We want to move digital music into the 21st century and PonoMusic does exactly that. We couldn't be more excited about bringing PonoMusic to the market."
The device has a 128 GB hard drive and can store between 1000 to 2000 high-resolution digital-music albums. It will run $399 and can be pre-ordered on KS starting at the launch date for a discounted price.
