Pono – Part One: The Unboxing

My Pono Kickstarter premium arrived on Friday morning. The Neil Young LE PonoPlayer was packaged in a lovely bamboo box with the PONO logo carved (embossed? branded?) into the front.

Accompanying the PonoPlayer was an AC plug, Micro-SD card, USB cable, a leather zipper pouch, a Welcome card from Neil Young, and an instructional brochure.

You can’t see them here, but the zipper case has two internal pockets for SD cards.

Preloaded on the SD card are Neil Young’s Harvest and the new Storytone album, both in 24/192.
