Music from Neil Young does not come cheap, and the artist’s PonoMusic service has begun offering high-audio quality albums at premium prices. So, Led Zeppelin’s Led Zeppelin IV comes in at a pricey $27.49, Young’s Storytone will set listeners back by more than $32. And singles cost from $1.99 to 2.99 a pop. That’s for album audio resolution, or, technically speaking, 24-bit 192kHz in FLAC. To tune in to that quality, though, listeners will need a PonoMusic player, which will set them back a cool $399.

Neil Young has famously pulled the finance together for PonoMusic on crowdsourcing platform Kickstarter, where he racked up an impressive $6.2 million in pledges. By the way, Pono means righteous in Hawaiian, the one, the pureness, which is why the music on PonoMusic goes right back to artists’ master recordings.
