Once an individual or organization launches a Kickstarter campaign, they're allowed to update it with additional rewards and answer questions. You can only ask a question if you have supported the effort. I looked at the Pono KS page this morning and noticed that they've provided and update with answers to some of the open issues with regards to DRM, file formats and alternate platforms.
Number 7 on the list asks <strong>Will Pono support DSD playback?</strong> No plans on this first release. We are focused specifically on PCM at this time because it has broad acceptance, and when done properly, still offers the best sonic solution. While DSD is also a great format, it simply doesn’t have broad enough acceptance by consumers, studios, or labels.
