Looking on all the cables coming out from my power filter some months ago, I decided to start replacing my power cables before anything else. I had been to a two hours demo at the main Hi-Fi shop in Norway testing different power cables in to and out from Isotek power filters. The impact of different power cables on the sound was obvious. Despite the impact of a sound power cable, I left the shop with headache and a feeling that something was wrong with the sound and timbre when the sales man connected the most expensive Nordost power cables my budget could afford and a little more. The timbre was hard and lean. Instruments did not sound natural. I didn´t think more about it until I came across an incredible recording with Vytautas Sriubikis playing the Sarabande from Bach's Partita for Flute in the Baroque Church of St. Catherine on the Lessloss Web site a month later. The Flute Timbre took me straight into Lessloss sound philosophy and the dynamics of skin filtering.
THE LESSLOSS DFPC ORIGINAL AND A NICE FAREWELL
Tonight I´m sitting here removing the last Nordost cable from my power filter. The last Nordost is sold. So I want to do a last test. What if if you have only one audio power cable connected to your source? After listening with only the Nordost Brahma which I thought was my best power cable, I replaced it with the Lessloss Original. I was a bit surprised. Only one Lessloss Original to my Dac gives better sound than the Nordost Brahma, even better than connecting the Lessloss Original to my Auralic Aries streamer and the Nordost Brahma to my Vega Dac. How can the cheapest Lessloss Power Cable do this magic alone? Instrument seperation is better, sound and soundstage is more focused and dissolved and the timbre is more organic.
So tonight I´m listening to the Bach Sarabande with my only Lessloss cable waiting for more to come. The headache is gone. Thanks to Louis Motek for making real stuff, not the type dreams are made on. And thanks for your incredible service, answering all my questions any time. I´m a happy customer.
All the best,

I am a customer at Best Buy Magnolia in North America.
I'm using the LessLoss cables for an HTPC (a computer), and my setup is as follows:
- bowers & wilkins CM1 and CMC
- bowers & wilkins sub
- pioneer VSX-42
I wasn't able to purchase the Reference Series because of the limited room of my setup, but it was absolutely amazing how connecting the cable to the source (e.g. the computer) was able to dynamically increase my bass by 2x; the sound is softer, but clearer. Other brands who sell power cables focus on Rhodium, and Palladium for their power connectors without paying attention to the tonal characteristic of the sound. Other brands also over-hype Silver in their audio cables. I haven't compared the burn-in characteristic since I recently got them, but I know that I used to have a problem with my subwoofer because it would sound muddy despite having a reasonably good setup. Just by connecting it to the source, the bass, and the entire range of sound became more audibly better as an objective term, and I'm just using the standard power cable for the sub.
I highly recommend these cables for everyone. I'll be interested in the Reference Series in the future.

Now that both the DFPC Originals used between my cd player and amplifier are probably fully burned-in and that the Furutech eTP-60E and the third DFPC Original are giving excellent result, I wanted to inform you that I am indeed very pleased with these products.
I wanted to thank you for excellent cables but also, for a great customer’s service.
As a customer, this (and a very interesting and informative website) was part of the pleasure of discovering your products.
Your availability and knowledge and in my case, your patience with probably very silly questions, make it a pleasure to purchase and use your products.
I will not attempt to paraphrase what other reviewers, professional of customers, have written about your cables.
These are a major improvement over what I had used before. It is clear, audible, obvious, affecting positively the entire range, from top to bottom.
I simply don’t understand these endless debates with people pretending cables don’t make a difference. They do and yours are better than the ones I used before. Period.
Furthermore, and as stated, the combination of Lessloss and Furutech eTP-60E is indeed working extremely well, in fact much better than the combination of your cables and an expensive power conditioner (Audience) or any other combination of expensive cables and a power conditioner that I have tried with my system.

Lately I got the DFPC Original power cord to go with my DIY Belden/IeGo cords.
I put the power cord on a FirstWatt F4 amp I have had on loan for a while. Well... I have to admit Louis was right. ;) I was a little skeptical as many times things have been claimed for this and that power cord, but in the end what I now have is at least as good as those claims.
I think the biggest difference is that the soundstage cleared up - and with that the voices, the delicacy of instruments, took a leap forward. This may sound like small improvements, but the whole entirety was quite a bit more natural and life-like. Very nice. =) Only one thing that maybe could have some more is the bass slam/weight. But jury is still out on that one, and of course with heavier bass the other spectrum may suffer. But the cable is still running in, so things may still change a little.
Great! - I may have to buy one or two more... ;)

Tested Headphone system:
Audio - GD Reference 7.1 DAC
Zana Deux Pre-headphone AMP with Mullard 195X ECC35/6SL7 (Brown Base)
Audio Technica ATH-W3000ANV
AKG Acoustics K-701
Audio Technica AD2000
Describing the sound from a headphone system as a "dramatic change" is often an overstatement when dealing with marginal upgrades, and quantifying it is even harder. But I would be pressed by my experience so far with the DFPC Original to say (switching from another similar priced cable) I was not disappointed by it at all. Even if it did not give me as much acute sound characteristic "shock" or "instant wow factor" as I perceived from other cables, it does address greater depth in dimension, transparency and smooth listening experience in a balanced way rather than bumping a certain perspective in the big picture, without a specific "wow" factor.
If you really want one word, it's more - Natural.
For those who want to just sit back and listen to their music, I would find it hard for you to miss its overall fluid dynamics without even needing to perform any "audiophiliac eye-popping scrutiny". The magic naturally plays itself the longer you listen, and I'm sure one would greatly appreciate its relaxed presentation in extended listening sessions. I found focusing on imaging to be really comfortable to my ears with this power cord.
There are several qualities adding up here in these cables. Bottom line? In a nut shell, it's a great cable for the price.

I am pretty impressed and satisfied with purchase of DFPC Original.
It does exactly what it says on the tin! Coupled with my Einstein integrated amp, I am able to hear enhancement with a more relaxed, natural listening experience while occasional harshness in tembre seems to be disappeared.
Well done in creating such an amazing product and effort in customizing the 90deg IEC end to suit my need.

Another interesting thing that I found after some tests during these weeks with the new DFPC Original, is that my passive PS Audio filter is changing the natural timbres and the 'organic flow' of the music. I mean, until now, on all my other systems/combinations it gave me better control, resolution, refinement etc, and in the last combination (still prior to having the Lessloss DFPC) I used it only on the source (because I already detected its not so good influences on the preamp & amp), but now with the DFPC Original included in the system, I found it even more obvious that the filter is giving an unnatural signature - an electronic/digital 'color' to the sound. When pulling it out from the system, and leaving only the power cables in the power outlets, the naturalness came back more clearly, like changing from a digital playback to an analogue one. Don't get me wrong, these kind of power filters/conditioners can improve in some directions and in some certain systems/combinations, but when you are going closer and closer to natural and real sound (thanks to the DFPC), it turns out that besides the beneficial effects, it adds these changes to the timbres, this digital haze, and it also limits the dynamics. I'm thinking seriously now to use only the cables directly from the outlets.
Thanks and I wish you all the best.

The cable finally arrived at my home after one week.
I carried out initial tests with it, and indeed your cable is an astonishing one! It is a true performer, and it is exactly what I was looking for, for years!! It gave me better dynamics, better resolution, better control, a quieter background, an improved soundstage and imaging, naturalness (natural timbres) and correct tonality, musicality and equilibrium. This cable improved the sound in all the areas that I could think of. It was like an important component upgrade and I'm looking forward to replace all my other current power cables with your cables.
This is indeed a truly wonderful cable and your vision/philosophy of the sound coincide with my own from what I'm hearing. I was looking for something like this for some years, not being satisfied in my search, blaming sometimes the 'active' components (speakers, amps, players etc.) and/or sometimes cables, or the lack of synergy. But now, for the first time I'm in the right direction, and it is amazing to see how close to natural and close to the correct sound an electronic component can sound - but a decent one of course - with the proper and the right power cable (the LessLoss), and how the equilibrium between performance (translated in terms like resolution, dynamics, soundstage etc.) and musicality (so not mere 'signals' or just sounds) emerge in a natural way. For sure, there is still a lot of room for improvement in my system, but now I find that the electronics themselves are quite OK if they were made with a decent conceptual design, implementation and components and proper attention to details, in trying to replicate the true, natural sound and not a colored one. Thanks again and keep it up, making outstanding and valuable audio products!
This is my system at the moment:
- speakers - Sonus Faber Cremona M
- source (player) - Simaudio Moon CD3.3 with XLR
- preamp - Sugden Masterclass LA-4
- power amp - Pass Labs X150
- cables: Kimber Monocle X (speakers), Kimber Select 1111 and Neotech NEI3101 (interconnects),
- power cables - DFPC Original, PS Audio Statement SC, PS Audio Statement and Vincent Audio.
- passive filter - PS Audio Quintessence (used only for the player).

I recently purchased the Sennheiser HD800 headphones and was blown away by the sound. However, after some time of listening I started picking out the inherent flaws of the HD800 headphones: weak bass, treble issues etc. During my investigation for solutions, I stumbled across the LessLoss web site. The site looked professional with very comprehensive information on all the technology behind their products. However, I must admit, I was skeptical going into the exercise of buying aftermarket power cords. My expectation was that they would make little to no difference and I would return them for a full refund. I'd even pre-arranged with LessLoss to cover my delivery and return shipping costs! Thanks to Louis Motek for agreeing to my dubious request. However, there is no way LessLoss will get my power cords back! Unless I decide to upgrade to the Signature series (which is a distinct possibility!).
My first impression was that there was something wrong with the sound. However, I soon realized that I was hearing clarity in the sound which I had never heard before! The depth of the bass was remarkable, the sound floor was almost undetectable, the vocals were crystal clear and the instruments were makings sounds I didn't realize they made! Thanks must go to Louis for his incredible turn around time (almost always within the hour) on all my email questions (particularly given the time difference here in Australia) and his expert and truthful advice along the way. I'm a LessLoss convert and will be taking a serious look at the other LessLoss products as a result. If only LessLoss made aftermarket headphone cables for the HD800s :( FYI: My current system - Cyrus CD T Transport; Rega Wolfson WM8742 DAC; Lehmann Audio Black Cube Linear Headphone Amp; and of course the Sennheiser HD800 headphones.
LessLoss started its business on Audiogon in late 2007. Within the first couple of month, word about LessLoss spread like wildfire among Audiogon members. Here is the feedback received from our clients during our first year of operation. This is from even before we had our own website.
Louis is one of the best in the business, truly professional and very fast production and delivery. I am very satisfied by your superb service. Many thanks.
Excellent transaction with Lessloss on dynamic filtering power cord. Good communications & fast shipping. A+++++
Bought 3 pc's from Liudas in Jan/08. Outstanding product as advertised. Performance is everything and more than I expected. Kudos to Lessloss cable for a great product. Very highly recommended...A+++
Bought the Lessloss PC cable about a month ago; the quality and build are excellent. Compares very favorably with more expensive PCs. Highly recommended. Thanks!
A power cable that makes a huge difference; simply an excellent design. First-class sales and service - highest recommendation.
Cable #6 powering my Emm Dac6e which comprises part of my headphone system. Again, more resolution, detail, quietness from my Victor HP1000phones. Best single device in my system ever. Time to purchase more. I'm spreading the word re: this marvel!!
Liudas,your service is INCREDIBLE,no waiting 4-6weeks for cables and the ones I already have are doing more than I hoped A+A+,Thanks again,Don
Lightspeed delivery,very nice cable.I am kind of proud Liudas of such good cables from this part of Europe
Liudas is a honest and dependable seller, always answers my e-mail questions promptly. The LessLoss cable is a work of art, and sounds good too, cable is still burning in. I'm quite happy with my purchase.
Very smooth transaction, lovely cables. Thanks Liudas!
Amazing power cord! It beats my other much more expensive cables hands down - blacker background, natural, more details and dynamics. All my CDs open up and sound more musical. Brought two cables so far and will be buying more for sure. Liudas is a s
Cable #5 powering my Day Sequerra tuner results in being able to receive more stations!!! No more hiss, greater dynamics. Makes it sound like my ADA Tune Suite XM. This cable is the most remarkable product that has come my way in the past 20 + years
Kind and lightspeed fast service. The cable is a steal and outperforms other cables, costing much much more. Increasing every aspect of sound you can imagine. Absolutely outstanding!!! Thanks again Liudas.
Item arrived quickly and well packaged. Excellent communication. A great product from a great seller.
This is cable #4 in my system.Used powering my Ashley Xovermy MRS scares me out of the room!What power below 15Hz.No power cords that I have owned,many15X the $579.asking price have come close 2 this level of performance Looking forward 2 adding more
Cable #3 added to the PS of my Cello Palette. Well, no more static as I rotate the dials for the various frequencies. 1st cable to accomplish this! All power conditioners, including the Accuphase P1200 did not rectify the situation.Unbelievable!
Fast shipping and great sounding cables. Would not hesitate to deal with Liudas again.
This is my 2nd power cord from Lessloss. The first one was used to power my VRE-1, this one for the EMM CDSA SE. Again, a stunning result, w/quieter backgrounds, something that I thought I achieved w/the 1st cable. Next unit, the Xover.Unbelievable!
Excellent service and product, do not hesitate to try these cords. AAA+
Super fast shiping and a fantastic power cord. The very best I have ever used. Thank you Liudas!
You cant get a better seller in audiogon than Louis. For a cheap PC ( compared to many other manufacturers), he is responsive to your mails and even offer suggestion for cable configuration. Buy with confidence. First class seller with 1st class serv

Very good sounding power cable,fast delivery-recommended.Thanks!
I own a number of well know and expensive Powercords that I use throughout my system. The Lessloss is clearly on par with the best for less. Used on the preamp of a system that was never bass shy, I felt like I had discovered another octave of music
Re: Purchase of Lessloss AC power cable. Immediately apparent something is special, it changes the envelope of the delivery of the music. The tripath solid state AR Amp sounds more flowing and used with my Tube SET, more bass from my 2 way speakers
Very good power cable at reasonable price, fast shipping, easy communication. Highly recommended, both product and seller.
Thanks Liudas. Very fast shippment, the whole transaction took 3 days. Excellent cable, the best I've owned. It's my second purchase from Liudas so I know from experience that it will be even better after burn in. Highly recommended.
Quick shipment and very good AC cord. I'll be back for more.
STELLA SERVICE. Felt like a valued customer. Cables are simply amazing. The sound stage is huge and sibilance free. Amazes me the way instruments and voices soar out of thin air. Thanks Luidas.
Outstanding service, excellent communication, and a fantastic product, one of the best power cables available for the $$$$. thanks again!
Quick delivery this time, My CD player never sounded so good. Thanks Luidas for another great cord to add to my system. A+++
I would like to thank Liudas for his excellent service. He is selling a fabulus product that helped me to solve the problem of high frequency harshness I experienced with my CD player.I will buy more cables to replace my Acrolink and Oyaide Tunami
I have now completed a full system (Digital/Power/Analog) integration using the LessLoss product. These power cables are a work of auditory art. Simply plug them in and be amazed! It's one product any sensible audio enthusiast should not miss out on.
I now have 4 of these in my system and every one of these on each component brought my system up to new levels. Nicely built as well. Highly recommended component!
Liudas is the gold standard in service. His cord in my system amounted to a hugh and positive upgrade. Thank you.
Outstanding service and the cable is as stated. The best I have heard so far over other regarded power cables. Highly recommend!!
Great on-going communications and terrific product.
I still find it hard to believe a power cord could be equal to or even greater than a serious interconnect upgrade, but it is! Thanks Liudas for the great product and perfect customer service.
The perfect seller in Audiogon: exceptional communication, easy transaction and fast and safe shipping. Recommended.
Perfect transaction.Great communication and very fast shipping. A+ Audiogon seller
Superfast shipping, good communication, doesn't get any better than this. Also, the cables are butifully made of high quality components. Thanks Walter.
Excellent transaction. A great power cable and company. Worth the wait.
A great experience overall, Liudas's enthusiasm for his product and the ongoing updates made this a very positive experience. The cord has made a significant difference in my system, most notably a much lower noise floor..
Trustworthy and very knowledgeable seller/designer/manufacturer. Kept in touch with updates and info. while cord was being manufactured and processed. It's all good - and all very high end.
Liudus is a great guy and the power cord is outstanding, I will glady buy from lessloss again, the cord took my system to another level
2nd entry; bought more cables. IMHO, better powercables than these are not available! Lessloss p/c's are MORE than a system upgrade. And 2 day delivery, from Lithuania?!! Amazing product!!!
Very nice sounding cable, beautiful build and a very reasonable price with fast international shipping. A+++
IMAGINE every listening session as your best listening session. Every recording played the best it can play. Your equipment performing always at optimum. Lessloss makes it happen! These cables are the best of the best!!!
In my years of audio and all the cords I tried Lessloss cords, made a difference you can hear for the better and it's not subtle. Good work Liudas! AAAA+
Excellent seller and Audiogoner, great communicator. Power cable is outstanding, excellent... Great soundstage, excellent definition, black background as promissed.
Liudas is great to deal with: excellent communication and service. The cables are very well made and well worth the money. Thanks!
Outstanding transaction and outstanding power cable.
Great transaction well worth the wait, this is by far the best powercord I have used in my system over the past 20 years, some cost as high as $3,000 and this power cord for $500.00 beat them all hands down and is a steal at its current asking price.
Top notch construction, performance to match, and a great transaction. Highly recommended because the cable does what is claimed, lowers noise while improving dynamics. Thanks!
If it was just always so simple !! Excellent, correct and accurate communication. Absolutely no loss at all even before listening to the cables. Highly recommended.
This cable was the BEST purchase that I've ever made!! I’m not affiliated with this product in anyway, but feel sorry for Audiophiles who don’t purchase these cables. Once Audiophiles try this cable, they will wonder how this product can be sold at such a low price. I’m baffled… In an industry full of snake oil, unethical cable retailers, enormous profits and scams - this LessLoss "Filtering Power Cable" is a "breakthrough product" which blows away the ALL competition at ANY price!!! I honestly don’t know how LessLoss can make a profit while using Oyaide connectors, hand braiding and an incredible passive AC filter. LessLoss "Filtering Power Cable" are sold from a manufacturer /owner /designer who is trustworthy, ethical, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to deal with. Take a chance!!!!, PayPal your money to Lithuania - and you'll be rewarded with great Customer Service, and the finest power cord made. Hear for yourself what you are missing!!! Thanks Again!!!
Excellent service and communication. Fast shipping. Thanks, Liudas!
Excellent products! Delivery of the power cords and XLR digital interconnect cable,was received within 10days of shipping. Luidas kept me informed on the status of my order. Very good communication and feedback to my inquiries.
First-rate all the way! The cables are sensational, and the price is a steal. The 1-2 week delivery from Lithuania is well worth the wait. Liudas and Vilmantas at LessLoss are perfectionists pursuing their love for the art of music reproduction.
Before upgrading your gear, please try the Lessloss Blackbody. It works wonders with my equipment and adds a realism, a new quality to the sound that will leave you speechless. Absolutely wonderful piece of gear.
