Neil Young Working On New High Quality Audio Technology  reports that Neil Young has recently been working on a new high quality audio format called Pono. The new format promises to give the highest digital resolution possible, similar to the studio quality sound that artists and producers hear on their original recordings. Young wants to offer consumers a cloud-based library of recordings from their favorite artists and the enjoyment of a convenient music listening experience that is vastly more superior in quality to what’s currently presented.

The story also cites Rolling Stone reports that Young has been filing patents for the new format, which will counter the super-compressed song files you purchase from online music stores such as iTunes and Amazon.
