Neil Young's high fidelity digital music player is already quite the success. The Kickstarter campaign for Pono Music hit its $800,000 goal in less than ten hours and has, as of the time of this writing, reached $1,978,334 in the first day of being open.
The service will use high quality digital file format that will provide a better sound than MP3. It was launched yesterday with an announcement at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
Pono consists of a digital music service titled PonoMusic and a 128GB portable player that is capable of storing 1,000 to 2,000 high resolution songs. The player will retail for $399.
