Pono is a unique prism-shaped music player that plays ultra-high resolution music in FLAC format. The famous Neil Young (who also happens to be chief executive officer for Pono) says the sound quality is like being in the recording studio with the band.

Apple already started to find new ways to appeal to audiophiles by remastering albums. The “Mastered for iTunes” series offers remastered albums with high-quality sound.

Bono elaborated on the project, “I think it’s going to get very exciting for the music business, an audiovisual interactive format for music that can’t be pirated and will bring back album artwork in the most powerful way, where you can play with the lyrics and get behind the songs when you’re sitting on the subway with your iPad or on these big flat screens.
