I agree that Neil is OTT about MP3s loosing 60% (i actually think he says 90%:) of the sound...... P E R I O D end of discussion. We know that a 320 mps, well converted MP3 is good sounding.
I do think Pono is a good thing, and that the mass population (not headfiers and our ilk) have no clue about what they are missing, and that Pono is going to bring the message to a good part of them.
Therefore, Pono is a very good thing!
Having said that, I cannot see me...
