Pono’s Hi-Res music service to be powered by Omnifone
PonoMusic, the Hi-Res music service that will accompany the PonoPlayer portable device, has formed a partnership with long-running online music platform Omnifone.
Omnifone, which owns the cloud-based music service MusicStation (on which, among others, Sony's Music Unlimited runs), has been stockpiling studio master quality Hi-Res Audio files since 2006, already delivers fully lossless WAV and FLAC audio to its customers, and has promised to add DSD format files in the future. So it’s already a pretty big deal when it comes to Hi-Res Audio, and the deal with Pono should only enhance its reputation.
Stupidly expensive audio kit isn’t music to my ears
