Neil Young gave the “high resolution” music movement a huge boost this past spring with his PonoPlayer, which blew the doors of Kickstarter to the tune of $6 million. Now Sony, which has a history with high-res music, is getting in on the action. Sony’s high-resolution NWZ-A17 Walkman costs $299, and is like a silver version of the old iPod nano made specifically for high-res music. As for where you get that music, the main place is currently a site called HD Tracks, but there are few others, too. And Sony says its player will be compatible with whatever store comes out of Neil Young’s PonoPlayer.
