For a long time I have struggled with the deleterious effects from noise-laden mains, making costly high end equipment underperform, sounding lean, harsh and flat. I have tried filters, but found them to influence the sound, specially in reducing dynamic performance. A while ago I found a very good solution in combining Less Loss DFPC Signatures and References with a couple of QRT Qx4 power purifiers, pluss two QV2 line harmonisers inserted in the Qbase QB8 power distribution unit.
Then came the new Firewall Module on the scene. I wondered if it would be overkill, but I wanted to try. So for the last week now I have had four Firewall modules in the line - one for the QB8 power distribution, the other three connected to the DAC, the pre amp and the power amp. So was it overkill? Not at all! The enhancement in the overall sound quality and listening experience is in fact astonishing. The music is presented significant more dynamic, instruments and voices have got more natural body and timbre, and the soundstage appears deeper and wider. Most important for me: A stronger connection with the music emanating from my speakers, it is another step closer to live music, and I just have to listen into late hours.
For those concerned:
Digital sources: MacBook Pro with Amara software, streaming to a BelCanto REFLink usb-s/pdif adapter.
Dac: Hegel HD30
Preamp: Hegel P30
Power amp: Hegel H30 (one, in stereo mode)
Speakers: Audiovector SR6 Avantgarde Arretè
Digital cable: LessLoss DC, Signal cables: Nordost Tyr2, LessLoss Anchorwave, Speaker Cable: LessLoss Anchorwave

As the owner of four (4) DFPC Signature and Two DFPC original power cables I am familiar with LessLoss innovative Dynamic Skin Filtering Technology.
I have been following with interest for more than one year the development of the original firewall modules which is an enhancement to the technology.
Approximately one month ago LessLoss introduced an improved version of these modules with an IEC C13/14 power plug and an Oyaide C079 Connector which was easier to introduce into one's system by attaching same to the power cable and the component.
I seized the opportunity to purchase two (2) of these modules. When the modules were introduced to the system the effects were immediately noticeable. They created a more quiet background from which music now emerged. The sound-stage also widened instruments appeared to move further apart and the vocal performer(s) if any, seemed to move forward. Even at low levels the full spectrum and impact were there. All music can now be played and enjoyed at intimate levels.
For experiment I unplugged the modules and the system reverted to its original status. Did I hear correctly? Was this really happening? I was convinced that it was so since when I reconnected the modules the improved effects returned. Vocal music was now very clear and silky without introducing the exaggerated "S" sound associated with high treble and what emanated from the speakers had an
extra inner coherence and dynamism.
Previously the music reproduced by the system was great but with the introduction of the modules I am now absorbed completely in performances. I realized that the system which I thought was a good system has now been elevated because of the introduction of the modules.
If these modules can improve the performance of LessLoss' power cables they will obviously improve the performance of any cable immensely. My advice to all music lovers is to consider the acquisition of these modules. My intention is to purchase modules for all my power cables.

Installation of three FireWall modules into a headphones only system. The system consisted of a Mac Book Pro 15” retina (2014) feeding a Weiss Engineering D/A via a 1 meter Kimber 2436 USB cable, which, in turn fed my WOO AUDIO WES amplifier via1 meter balanced MIT interconnects. Jack Wu extensively modified the amplifier to an incredible performance level. The amplifier drove Stax SR 009 ear speakers.
All via DFPC Signatures, the first Firewall module was connected to a grounded wall outlet and then to a Furutech TP60 AC Power Distributor. Two Firewall modules were plugged-in to the TP60, one fed power to the D/A converter and the other fed power in to the amplifier.
It was a “bear” to get these 1.50” power cables into place. They haven’t been “dressed” yet as that will have to await the removal of the existing power cables.
Well? What did I hear? How do I describe this? Essentially I heard a lot of nothingness! It wasn’t greater clarity, sublime tone, a driving beat, etc., or any other terms reviewers like to use. I became aware of the space between musicians. Their 3D placement of instruments was more obvious and snuck up on me without focusing. Further, the collapse of the venue’s reverb following loud or percussive passages was very prominent, almost physical! Truly. The precision of instrument placement was almost visible. For the 1st Listen, that was impressive.

First impression is very often the good one. YESTERDAY I received 5 new Firewall modules with oakwood case and Oyaide connector. I installed them one on preamp Vitus, two on stereo separated elements preamp Einstein, two on mono amps Soulution. So simple to install...
I let a little burning time and ? the only word I find is MAGIC. I spent many, many years and a lot of money to assemble a system with one goal "approach": the sound of live music. With the new Firewall immediately I perceived a superb bettering of the whole system on every quality I am looking for. But it's only the beginning of a new pleasurable listening experience. Many thanks to those who have realized such a GREAT product.

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 would like to inform you about the evolution of the sound of my system since the addition of the Firewall distributor/conditioner you custom built for me.
You will remember that I was disappointed by the result, especially in the 'bass region' that took a step back while an increase of details and a better treble and midrange were obvious.
As explained below, I have connected 2 old cd-players with their stock cables to the Firewall and using a third cable to connect it to the wall while respecting the L&N instructions.
I let this ‘play’ for 5 days, non stop.
When I reconnected the Firewall to my system, I wasn’t exactly amazed by the sound but I understood that it had to somehow 'burn in again' for a few hours.
A day later and I am happy to say that the system, with the addition of this ‘made-to-mesasure’ distributor/conditioner, now sounds very good.
It sounds better than with the Oyaide distributor. Definitely better. Bass is now cleaner and more powerful.
Listening to a few well-known cd’s, I have the feeling that the sound now goes ‘deeper into the mix’, with a better separation of the instruments and voices while maintaining an overall very pleasant sound. I mean that it doesn’t artificially sounds ‘clinical’ or agressive but keeps a full and ‘whole’ sound.
Subjectively, I can say that the general level of improvement is almost comparable to the upgrade of Originals to Signatures.
As usual with your products (3 Originals and then 3 Signatures), burn in was long...and frustrating.
More so in this case as the sound took a step back for a while which wasn’t the case with the power cables. Their sound was good ‘out of the box’ but got so much better after a long burn in.
As you have mentioned before, for some customers, this can lead to frustration, fiddling with the cables and/or the system, changing a few things and ending up with even higher levels of frustration and, obviously, wrong conclusions.
I was wondering if a ‘cable cooker’ or some device of that type may not be an answer to these frustrations.
In my case, it was obvious that burning in the Firewall was the answer, especially when owning a full tube system which makes a 24/7 burn in impossible.
So, in a nutshell, thank you for this new piece of equipment.
LessLoss has never ceased to amaze me with clever solutions and, above all, products that improve the sound of a hifi system and increase the pleasure of listening to music.
You keep your promises.

I own this power cord since a few years, after having been given the opportunity to audition it alongside the other LL power cords models, in my own system, thanks to Louis Motek friendlly, professional and patient customer service. The DFPC Reference has been a pillar of my stereo system since then.
If you can afford it, it is by far the best sounding model in LL range, not just a slight improvement for many more $$$ like with a lot of other manufacturers.
Actually, as Louis advised me, when coupled to a high quality (but not that expensive) power strip like BPT products, you get a high quality and great value power distributor for your whole system, that beats a lot of far more expensive power conditioners (that often thicken or slow the sound IMHO).
Naturally, it works wonders to power directly a particular component, I use it on my Dartzeel amplifier to great results. I compared it to other very well known - and sometimes more expensive, power cords and the DFPC reference was the clear winner, much more open sounding, airy and "atmospheric".
In my experience the DFPC Reference is one of the bona fide best quality power cords in the market, and offers remarkable value for money. It does not hurt that the build quality is superb.

The 3 'Signature' that have replaced 3 'Original' are blooming nicely. Still. I don't really know if it has to do with my system or the amount of time the cables actually need to burn in.
The level of bass, quality of treble and detail is astonishing.
I am on holiday since about a week and listen to music all day long and the sound is almost improving on a daily base now.
I had a few friends/colleagues over last weekend and we tested very expensive (and I mean very expensive) Nordost cables on my system.
The LessLoss were definitely better. To such an extend that the owner of the Nordost loop is most probably going to place an order for Signature or Reference.
What was indeed ‘strange’ was the level of improvement that the 'Signature' cables brought when compared to the Nordost.
Considering the price of the Nordost, I was, at the most, expecting your cables to level the Nordost but they were, well, better.
[Update after several weeks of burn-in]
Just a few words to inform you that my 3 DFPC Signature are still improving. Quite amazing considering the level reached so far.
The improvement is obvious on cd's that regularly hit my system and, as mentioned previously, in a beautiful and 'even' way: detailed treble, wonderful middle and even more obviously, deeper but controlled bass.
If you allow me some form of amateurish analogy, it now sounds like a puzzle of which each piece is now perfectly, tightly and smoothly in place and of which even the physical separation of the pieces has disappeared in order to produce a perfectly clear and beautiful picture...
My comments start to look like some dodgy infomercial... I just hope that my genuine enthusiasm will not be perceived by some as a 'paid for' review, hence being counter productive.
But I mean every word.

First and foremost, I wanted to inform you that the recent upgrade from 3 Originals to 3 Signatures is bringing very, very, very nice results!
The difference between the two models within the LessLoss range is almost as high and obvious as the original upgrade from my Audioplan power cables to LessLoss DFPC Original cables.
The improvement is general and on the entire spectre of the music; there is no range that receives a ‘better treatment', the improvement is clear and audible, strong and subtle at the same time.

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!!

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.

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.
