Walkman IV – The Return of Fidelity

Let’s take a trip down memory lane:

[deep ominous movie trailer chord]

Walkman 1 (1980) – by Sony – stereo cassette – 2 headphone jacks – powered by 2 AA batteries for runtime of 20 hours.

Finally private jams!

Walkman II (1984) – Discman by Sony – compact disc – 1 headphone jack – powered by 2 AA batteries for runtime of 30 hours.

Finally digital private jams!

Walkman III (2001) – iPod by Apple – digital file player w/max resolution of 16/44 – 1 headphone jack – powered by rechargeable battery

Finally bootlegged private jams with no skipping!

Walkman IV (2014) – Pono Player by Neil Young – hi-fi digital file player w/max resolution of 24/192 – 2 headphone jacks with 4 output configs – powered by rechargeable battery

Finally … master-quality music in my ears just like the artist intended!

You know I’ll have a review as soon as I get mine.

OH YEAH HERE IT IS. THE PONO SMILE.


Don’t stop me now!
