Blackbody one-year investigation published in Stereo Times; Kaiser Vivace Loudspeaker in NYC
Tuesday 10 April, 2012
After an entire year of investigation in various systems, three independent reviewers at Stereo Times publish their long-term findings in a three-part review titled "Life with the LessLoss Blackbodys."
Following are some extracts from the article:
"Via the Blackbodys, the music just came through with a new sense of harmonic wholesomeness I had not experienced from any other tweak."
"I sat in amazement for hours listening into the wee hours of the morning."
"The music was at once purer: totally devoid of grain or strain."
"I noticed Kaplan expected to hear something positive. What he didn't expect was anything this powerful and resoundingly obvious. The look on his face within seconds of playing a familiar track was all I needed to know about the Blackbodys' effectiveness here in this highly tweaked setup. "...what the f*%@ is going on?"
"Bass sounded quicker and lower than it had any right to be via this old pair of Apogees."
"The music took on greater contrast and appeared more lively."
"The Blackbodys impart purer tones and harmonics: qualities the single-ended lovers and vinyl enthusiasts claim their wares are most prolific at, while hitherto was near impossible to yield from solid-state and digital devices."
"You do not have to own the best of everything in order to achieve state of the art performance. The LessLoss Blackbodys are a testimony to that. Though not cheap they do as advertised and have taken my listening pleasure to a level I could not have believed prior to their installation."
"Once you get a grasp of its power, it will challenge everything you thought you previously knew regarding noises and other contaminations in and around components."
"I’m now convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that capturing the ultimate sound may be in our grasp by virtue of tweaks and not that shiny new $80k amplifier or loudspeaker."
