Everyone is raving about Neil Young's new high-rez PonoPlayer, but Mario Aguilar of Gizmodo is not impressed. Young says you can hear the difference. But can he hear the difference? He's 69 years old, and has spent his life standing in front of deafening amplifiers.
Despite that, Neil Young claims to be able to detect subtle differences between various digital recording formats. Mario Aguilar says it's all just confirmation bias. I'm inclined to agree.
