DFPC Series [Reference]
Date Added: 09/12/2013 by Alan Carruth
I recently received the New DFPC Reference cables and wanted to share my experience with them. I am a long term fan of Louis Motek and the LessLoss products. I have enjoyed continual improvement in listening pleasure as I have added and upgraded my system. I began with the DFPC Originals, the DAC 2004 Mkll and Digital Cable. I have gradually upgraded with DFPC Signatures, 12 Blackbody Conditioners, 2 Firewall Power Conditioners in series to a power distributer, a Tunnelbridge Interconnect system and finally 2 pairs of Anchorwave Speaker cables (speakers are biwired). I didn't think I could be happier with the sound, but I learned long ago to stop saying, "I don't think the sound can get any better." Well, I trust Louis and was excited to try the Reference power cords. I ordered 7 cables but decided to try just 2 for a start. I put them in front and in-between the Firewalls and started listening to all my familiar music. The improvement in the sound was immediately obvious! With NO burn-in, the Reference cables are amazing! I hurriedly put the rest of the Reference cables in place and was astounded by what I heard! These cables are a great improvement over the Signature cables. I'll spare you the descriptive adjectives. I've never heard anything closer to live music! I'm talking in the recording studio or concert hall listening quality. If you are wondering whether to buy these cables, the answer is YES!!!! You will not be sorry!
I want to add a time frame to describe my impression of the sound changes as the Reference DFPCs burn in.
*Initial impressions: Much improved clarity and definition over the Signature DFPCs, but the sound stage is a little forward and bright. There is a slight digital edge present.
*30-40 hours: Brightness and digital edge are fading. Sound stage is not as far forward and beginning to open up nicely.
*60-70 hours: Brightness and digital edge are almost gone. Sound stage is open and deep, more natural. Vocals and instruments sounding life like!
*100 hours: The sound is rich, lush and very accurate. No digital edge and no noticeable noise floor! Sound stage is hugh. Highs and lows seem to go forever. No listening fatigue!
*150 hours: The music is astounding!!!! You are there!!!!
*200 hours: The sound is hypnotic!!! Even the most complex symphonies and choral music are no longer a challenge to listen to. This is TRUE High Fidelity!
*400 hours: The listening experience continues to improve. Sound stage continues to become more realistic. Very relaxed and natural and yet very detailed and defined. It almost feels surreal. I am experiencing these old recordings as if for the first time. I just can't believe music can sound this good!
I've now had about 1700 hours of signal time on the DFPC References, and I think things are pretty stable now. Even at 800 to 900 hours there was a transition of a slightly harsher/digital sound which started to disappear at 1200 hours. My goodness! I'm sure I never would have appreciated this on a lesser system! The listening is now sublime! It is smooth, musical, and ultra defined with an enormous sound stage. I couldn't be happier!

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.
Anchorwave Speaker Cables
Date Added: 06/21/2013 by Tomas
After spending over three years upgrading components, cables, and furniture, constantly adjusting speaker position (and loosing quite a significant amount of cash) I finally dared to approach LessLoss for their products. Step by step, I got the full range of LessLoss basic level cables: DFPC Originals for power, Anchorwave XLR for interconnect between components and the same Anchorwave to connect the speakers to my solid state amplifier.
The result is obvious: I could have saved a lot of time and cash if I had gotten familiar with LessLoss in the beginning of my relationship with real hi-fi. The sonic experience I got installing the LessLoss cables brought me one simple realization: that’s the end, no more efforts for further upgrades, it is time for listening.
I’m happy now: my wife doesn't complain to me of a headache when I put DSD files on, my friends (who are quite skeptic towards hi-fi ideas) don’t consider my system of lacking deep low range anymore. But the most important thing is that I want to sit and to listen to my beloved records over and over again.
The LessLoss cables upgrade lets me listen at lower sound levels than before, I can spend hours listening and hearing everything, and afterwards I still feel fresh. I don’t want to talk about sound stage, instrument positioning, etc. because it’s not important any more. Now I have one simple criteria for hi-fi: the pleasure.
I could give one piece of advice for persons continuously seeking better sound and starting to forget just listening to the music: log onto the LessLoss web shop, give it a try and you won’t look back at other options.
For those who are curious for details: I use demanding Mordaunt-Short Performance 6 LE speakers with the last incarnation of Marantz NA/PM 11 set.
Anchorwave Speaker Cables
Date Added: 06/08/2013 by Barry Howard
After many years chasing the holy grail in cabling I tried 1 of the Lessloss dynamic filtering power cables and that led me to replacing every other one in my system with them and then 6 Blackbodies. For interconnects and speaker cables I went through Kimber, Straightwire, Nordost, Anti-Cables and then the gamut of Cardas wire finally feeling comfortable with Neutral Reference for phono and speaker cable and Golden Reference for everything else.
When I became aware of the Anchorwave line I contacted Louis and after consideration of my system he suggested that his product could improve on lowering the noise floor and increasing resolution without giving up the rich texture of the Golden Reference. I went all in based on my trust of him and I was not mislead. It was all of what he said with the addition of natural harmonics that are on the recording that I find very involving when listening to music. They are so quiet and engaging. I worked with him to build the phono interconnect with grounding wires that makes his cable dead quiet and eliminating the usual residual hum that I had become used to at high volume levels. So much for the theory that phono cables need only be minimal strands of wire; this huge amount of copper does the job well!!
I am writing this review because after 18 months of getting used to the Anchorwaves I got the upgrade bug again so ordered the full suite of Morrow Audio's top of the line cables, SP-7, PH-6, etc. and burned them in for 600 hours. I now have a deeper appreciation for the Lessloss products and confirmed for myself that they allow the harmonic structure to shine through so that the desperation in a vocalist's voice or the bowed string on a cello or a tenor sax that I treasure so much is clearly evident.
If the Anchorwave is this good how good is the Tunnelbridge?!

Hi: It's a funny thing. I purchased the DFPC Signature cables about 2 years ago, and put them in my system on the power block end. I could hear a difference straight away compared to my MIT cables. Some people say it takes 2 weeks to burn in, and this was happening, but I say it takes longer than that: 2 months or more. All the same I am very pleased with them, a kind of open clarity of sound.

When I read about the power conditioner in a review, I got more interested about this power conditioner and in general about power cables. The debates about cables, you can read them all over the internet. One side says it's a waste of money, and the other says it's worth the money and you can get a small, or even a big improvement.
On my system until now, all the big upgrades I have done with cables have brought good improvements. So I wanted to first try 2 DFPC cables and then, eventually, 4 more cables. Louis Motek in fact recommended me to take more DFPC cables instead of the Firewall.
*I have to point out, Louis was a great help; he took a lot of time to answer my questions.*
My system has 2 amps: one for Home Cinema (the NAD M15 HD2 / M25) and for Stereo, the T+A V10-2.
All speakers are from Piega, the big Front speakers are the C40.
The first impression was, I got more bass. My subwoofers, I had to readjust, they got too much bass. Minus 3 dB. Now they are perfect.
After 2 weeks of burning in the cables, the music got more clear and to me it sounds more analog. When I watch a movie, the sound is more around, deeper, and with better details than before.
I am glad I bought these DFPC cables and I recommend them to improve your system.

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).

A power cable that makes a huge difference; simply an excellent design. First-class sales and service - highest recommendation.

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.

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!

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.
