How we deliver music that’s transformative – not transformed.
PonoMusic is a company on a mission. A mission that starts at the source – the artist’s master recordings – and ends with the mystery of music and the human soul. PonoMusic is dedicated to restoring that ear-body connection with a new digital music system that optimizes the listening experience end-to-end. It includes PonoMusic.com – our music store that brings you musical art in its original, highest quality form, and the PonoPlayer – a powerful, beautifully designed device that plays your favorite music perfectly. A full ecosystem for a full experience. For more details check out our Kickstarter page.
PonoMusic starts with the best ingredients – artist-approved digital masters sourced directly from all the major music labels. Every artist you know and love, plus new releases as they come out. PonoMusic honors the music at the level it was created – it holds up a mirror to the artists’ original vision, reflecting it with perfect clarity.
Even though player was built to power and play PonoMusic, it gets the most out of any digital file, thanks to our partnership with the engineering team at Ayre Acoustics that custom-designed a digital filter, used zero-feedback circuitry, and chose a great sounding DAC, to make every PonoPlayer listening experience as magical and deep as possible. Smartphones skimp on these components, because with mp3s, it doesn’t matter so much.
The PonoPlayer adds no distortion or distance, nor removes any subtlety. It doesn’t do anything to the music, except play it, perfectly, in all its original richness and glory.
Of course, the PonoPlayer sounds best with PonoMusic. You “hear the light” – the perfect clarity of the highest quality music – then you see it: the blue PonoRevealer light comes on whenever a PonoMusic digital file is playing, and you’ll see, and hear, that it is the best it can be.
When the Kickstarter campaign is complete, this website will transform into the PonoMusic Store. You will be able to purchase PonoPlayers and PonoMusic to your heart’s, and ears’, content.
We are supported by all the major labels, and are working closely with the independents to bring you their back catalogues and their new releases, as soon as they come out.
