Homage to Time XLR Wins Two Awards at Once

August, 2016, author: Matej Isak
"LessLoss cables were always special contenders in the world of high-end audio. A few first notes resounding would always bring a vivid projection of what makes them special and different."

"LessLoss has in recent years, step by step, introduced more and more affordable products while at the same time maintaining performance which matches and even rivals high-end audio cables and accessories at much higher prices."

"It is undeniable that Louis and his energetic team at LessLoss pushed hard in order to maintain and even surpass what has become renowned in the name of LessLoss performance, but at a much more affordable level."

"Developing this performance at this type of pricing can only be described as a welcome advance for us audiophiles."

"In a very true sense, the LessLoss Homage To Time interconnects encapsulate the primary function of transmission of all that is 'of a higher plane.'"

"Higher harmonics are very informative with Homage to Time. They are well focussed and maintain a more natural integration with the main pitch. It becomes easier to discern subtleties relating not only to our western traditions of tuning, but also reveal the same about the complexities of eastern microtonality and harmony."

"Homage to Times delivers a prominent set of positive attributes and my listening notes show similar results even when exchanging amplifiers. These include liquidity, transparency, ease of flow, and a feeling of undeniable unwavering and stability."

"Speed and spirit evolved over and above what one might be expecting at this price point, and gave the much bigger boys a good run for their money."

"LessLoss Homage To Time managed to describe and convey mountains of these attributes that achieved with what I can boldly call proper high-end audio transmission. It is true that not everything expensive or labeled "high-end audio" is worthy of such nomenclature. Homage to Time truly is."

"Homage to Time cables follows faithfully a track that LessLoss has laid down securely in their earlier years. This is a difficult task. Maintaining their already recognized sonic potency and value in times where so many desire to get on the same bandwagon without delivering the goods, this defines and fortifies the LessLoss brand image in the high-end audio industry. This is not a small achievement! Bravo, LessLoss!"

"The LessLoss Homage To Time interconnects were born of experience by a mature designer, come with the undeniable LessLoss DNA and, most importantly, with sonic performance that not only convinces, but convinces in strides."

"For what the LessLoss Homage to Time XLR balanced interconnect achieves and at what price point it does this, I'm garlanding it with two awards at once. These cables more then deserve both our Highly Recommended and Best Buy awards. This is the first product Mono And Stereo has ever given both awards at once to, and in doing so we want to make a clear statement as to what high level they perform at and how well they're executed."

Russian press finds Homage to Time interconnects convey "perfect sound"

October 2015, author: Alexander Chechelev
"Homage To Time is strongly influential, and really helped ensure the correct transmission of the LessLoss commitment to rhythm and tempo."

"And these are unlike other cables, which put the emphasis on attack and simplify complex "tails" and retract from subtle reverberation, or try to convey to the listener an exaggerated sense of detail, but are unable to combine these into a single musical event, where music is perceived as a properly cooked meal with a perfect balance of ingredients. With Homage to Time, there is no unnecessary pressure on the midrange, nor too emphasized is the treble, nor is bass bloated."

"Across the frequency spectrum a great detail is retained, but no one area is dominated nor attracts undue attention. If you are used to cables that supply music with "special effects," initially you will always miss something in the sound."

"However, if within a few hours you revert to your favorite spectacular cables in your system, believe me, you'll be surprised how you did not previously notice how severely they distort the rhythmic pattern of the music. Moreover, this applies to both the direction of acceleration and deceleration. In contrast, the LessLoss Homage To Time is perceived as riding behind the wheel of a well-balanced and finely tuned car, after a hard race in a barely controllable Towncar with already run-bald tires. The music does not throw you into a fever, nor does it lull you to sleep; you just get pleasure from the process of listening. All events begin and end in rhythmic time, without emphasis on any of the phases. Eventually, your consciousness begins to accept the reality of the illusion created by the system, as you gradually sink into a contemplative, but at the same time moderately alert, state."

"With the Homage to Time interconnects, no restrictions could be detected, whether in dynamic response or in the transfer of the subtlest nuances. Comprehensiveness on fortissimo is excellent. Nothing escapes the attention of LessLoss."

"Rating: perfect sound, outstanding neutrality, high quality manufacturing"

"Using LessLoss Homage to Time interconnects, don't count on any coloration, but they will completely reveal the talents of your system. If it is good, the incorporation of LessLoss Homage to Time interconnects will make it even better."
