    I know he's been on a jag against MP3 for years. I wonder if you can achieve this quality off your existing CD's?

    CD quality is superior to MP3, but inferior to say an analog LP.

    For a while I was contemplating buying a iPod classic to store uncompressed music from my CD collection. Recently I added the BBE Sonic Maximizer app and it's boosted the quality of my compressed recordings quite a bit.

    What I like about the PONO
    1. engineered for higher audio quality
    2. Uses a non propriety format
    3. accepts standard SD cards

    What I don't like
    1. The Pono store, anything that tries to compete with iTunes is fighting a very uphill battle.

    I don't know how much of a market something like this would have and I'm sure those higher resolution files will have a higher price tag. As for myself, it's tempting. I have a bit over 100 lps, and have not gotten around to recording them. My computer equipment is capable of recording at 24bit so I can get pretty darn good resolution on my computer, but how many people have access to that type of equipment?

    Still tempting though.
