    Yeah, it surprised the hell out of me the first time I seen it. I knew there was a 256, but a 400?? Santa was nice enough to bring me one a day early so I could load it up.:D

    And just think - in five years, we'll be looking back at how quaint it was to only have a 400gb microSD card. :D

    Yes it doubles the output of the player when you used Balanced Mode. The HD6XX sounds amazing with balanced mode. The noise floor is non-existent.

    I just found out that Charles Hanson died back in late November. Very sad! The audiophile world lost one of the greats. There are posts on his FB from manufacturers and colleagues around the world. RIP Mr. Hanson.

    Yes, i’ve ordered a balanced cable (5 feet Canare) from Venus Audio, and looking forward to receiving in the next few days. The HD6xx does really sound great, and It will be nice to have the bit of extra headroom!

    But the astounding mass adoption & ubiquity on a scale throughout the Western world, and the subsequent decimation of physical media in every entertainment industry via Netflix, iTunes, YouTube and Spotify is what is being addressed, and is truly remarkable – not just "an old" observation, but making every aspect of artistic endeavour grapple w/ these "new realities".

    Agreed! Ubiquity + mass adoption on a massive scale...young and "old".

    In a better world, itunes etcetera would be dead and Pono would be doing well (and including DR values).

    It was a bad sign when CEO quit before units started shipping to retail, and NY took over....

    I hope my player lasts as long as my first Technics cd player did (1987-2007)!

    Mine is still working (fingers crossed); so this means no more firmware, no more support, no more repairs.

    That's too bad. Say what you will about the device itself, but the Pono Promise was unique.

    It was always coming, at least it’s done now.

    I love my player and will continue to use it until it gives up. It’s been 18 months since my battery replacement and I use my player every day so I don’t know how much longer that will be. Wouldn’t be surprised if I need to replace my player by the end of this year. I’ve already decided the Sony WM1A will be my next port of call

    Where does one get a replacement battery? My player is fine but I'm thinking ahead.
