Ignore those who wouldn’t know good sound if their life depended on it.
The PonoPlayer is winning awards and impressing nearly everyone who hears it.
I’m referring to those that have some idea what they are doing and hearing. First the Rocky Mountain Audio Product of the Year, now Stereophile’s Digital product of the year.
It’s sad but understandable that rave reviews from all kinds of audio blogger types against 2 bad reviews by mainstream tech blogs (Yahoo! and Ars Technica), that those bad reviews would spawn more snark and negativity from uninformed bloggers who have never even heard the device.
These tech sites are all hooked into Googleverse and generate the highest page views, so when you search PonoPlayer you see negative results listed ahead of good reviews.
Here’s what you need to know: Stereophile just awarded PonoPlayer their Digital Product of the Year.
They said it was the least-close category, that’s how impressive the PonoPlayer is at it’s price point.
Here’s plenty more good reviews if you need convincing that this is the best sounding $500 device made:
