Neil Young raises $6 million in Kickstarter campaign for Pono
Kickstarter closed the campaign Tuesday after it raised $6.2 million through 18,000 supporters. The campaign is the third most-funded project for Kickstarter.
Young's portable player will cost $399 when it debuts in October. PonoMusic will also launch an online music store. The project promises high quality audio compared with other digital tracks that feature compressed audio.
The Kickstarter campaign was launched last month.
Young, 68, named the company Pono after a Hawaiian word meaning righteousness.
