    Some more info from here
    100 - 500 albums. Apparently the 1000 - 2000 was a mistake. 
     The DAC chip used is the ESS ES9018

    Interestingly the press release on Computeraudiophile quotes 100-500 hi res albums depending on resolution and length of recording. This seems on a par with other systems. The 1000+ albums quoted earlier would seem to be an error...

    Apparently the 1000 - 2000 was on the original PR. He edited it later.

    The latest is news is no DRM.
    But I agree with OPs sentiment.

    Protip : for God's sake dont search for Young Pono at work. Or anywhere really.

    Setting aside the DRM issue, this reminds me of how people felt about Apple's eco and operating systems 6 or 7 years ago. In the final analysis, no one is required to buy in, but this whole thing may serve to get the attention of big companies (giving them the idea of raising the bar {in paying attention to audio quality} themselves). That's a good thing.

    Does it say anywhere, what type of files it will play?

    What…..me too :)
    I bet Neil's sell  sold out in the next 15  minutes. There were only 86 85 after I pledged mine.
