Pono Player hands-on: believe the hype

It's a true testament to the high-quality audio delivery of the Pono Player that we're able to suggest that it's all that it's cut out to be at a tech convention. We're at Showstoppers during CES 2015 and it's loud - not deafeningly loud, but loud enough that it's not an optimal environment for listening to tunes. This device delivers sound that's next-level.
