Please Tell Us More Neil Re:Pono HiRes Streaming….

I listened with a great deal of interest to Neil Young on the Rolling Stone Magazine Now podcast. I took notes during the section that focused on Pono Music. I learned that the revised Pono Music Store will be both a download and streaming site when ready.

My question is how will we stream high-resolution audio with the existing Pono Players? Exclusive of a Pono – SmartPhone partnership or device/ existing Pono device enhancement?

Will I need to boost my ISP speed to 300MBs or more?

I researched the Internet and came up with the fact that Sony Xperia smart phones play and stream high res audio music.

The high res streaming service Qobuz (France) today streams high res. It has a limited global market (France, UK, Germany, Netherlands).

However its not streaming from Singapore…and it’s not Pono….

Hopefully Neil will further enlighten the Pono community (after all we’ve been loyal and patient) with more information about the revised Pono service after sharing that knowledge with Rolling Stone Magazine’s audience first via their podcast.
