Homage to Time

I'm astounded at how big a difference your jumper cables have made. I've been breaking them in over the past couple of days and they're still improving. But even from the beginning I heard a lot more detail, and also better dynamics and gradations of loudness. Some initial shrillness or brittleness went away after a steady day of break-in, and detail and sense of space around instruments has continued to increase, considerably. I knew improving jumpers could make a difference; I'd already discovered that when I replaced the crappy clip-ons that came with my speaker with modest upgrades from Mapleshade and AntiCable. But the LessLoss jumpers take matters to a different level entirely. As much as I've benefited from adding 5 Firewall Modules to my system, I doubt that adding more would have made as dramatic an improvement as this modest (and much less expensive) jumper upgrade. Of course, it's really a speaker upgrade, and a significant one at that. If any of your customers still have stock jumpers on their speakers, I'd urge them to make the change IMMEDIATELY. I'm embarrassed that it didn't occur to me to do this much sooner.

The case for the Echo’s End DAC is unbelievably sturdy and there will surely be not a single unit delivered damaged.
I placed the DAC on three Roller Block Jr., and it looks fine.
The look of the Echo’s End DAC will not appeal to every possible customer looking for a new DAC.
Well, I love it’s look immensely. Stripped to the bones, a design of total understatement. No shiny display that shows sampling rates, input selector, the time and date or whatever. Just signal in, processing, signal out.
My Echo’s End gets the input signal via AES/EBU from my CD Transport. Signal out via LessLoss RCA cable.
I listened to one or two CDs and the let it play silently for hours every day. Then it came to my attention that I didn’t check the polarity of the power connection, how could I forget that? Damn. And it turned out I had to switch the polarity. My advice to every customer, check it right from the start, as it is important. After several hours of silent burn in, I started listening.
Every comment LessLoss posted about the sound is absolutely right. It seems that the enclosure of the Echo’s End is equivalent to the sound it creates in my listening room. It is pure, natural, analog-like and wonderfully detailed.
As if it were made explicitly for music with acoustical instruments. Jazz Trios sound unbelievably realistic. You can also expect lots of details not heard before. But I can only compare it to the DAC that I used before, and that was not an ultra expensive megabuck item.
With the Echo’s End the sound, room placement of instruments somehow shifted in dimensionality, this is difficult to describe. The instruments are perceived to be at slightly different places, especially in depth. So, the music seems to be reproduced like it was intended by the musicians, producers and recording artists.
Even when this dimensionality / room was created artificially in a sound recording studio for your listening pleasure. Instruments are wonderfully separated and at the same time the music can be sensed as a complete whole. This differentiates this DAC from other DACs, which have a more technical or, haha.. "digital" sound.
I'll compare this to an analog example. Way back when, I purchased a used double LP of Dave Brubeck's Time Out at a record fair. It was an RCA pressing, nothing special. At a later date I got the first audiophile remastered 180gr. pressing. The re-mastered version couldn’t compare to the cheap RCA pressing. The audiophile one had this sort of ping pong stereo effect, a much better separation of instruments, but the music couldn’t be recognized as whole.
I only wanted to mention one CD, the OST of „the house of flying daggers“. This is a recording that gives you a feeling at first listen, that it can’t get any better than this. The third track really gets you drumming, like the Kodo drummer of Japan, you know what I mean. With the Echo’s End, this track gets an unbelievable complete new quality. The drums sound so real, that you sit there in awe and simply can’t believe it. The drummers are in your room, it feels as if you can smell the sweat pouring down their skin. Really absolutely outstanding.
Yet again, LessLoss has created a wonderful product.

Another DFPC Reference, this time feeding a Synergistic Research QLS-6 and ATC SCM25A Pro studio monitors. This replaces a JPS Labs Aluminata. Most interesting results were:
1. Better transient definition,especially in the bass.
2. I was able to actually angle my monitors out to get a wider field without sacrificing center image.
3. Natural frequency response.

After an impatient wait of 3 months, I have finally got the Echo's End DAC in my hands.I believe I'm one of the first to receive it.
Right out of the super space-age case the sound was compressed and heavy as would be expected but after only a few hours of play, it started to open up. Louis has indicated to me that it would take a good 3 to 4 weeks of continuous play for the DAC to be fully burnrd-in. Now, after only about 32 hours of play over a few days, I am already impressed with the uncluttered, clean, balanced and natural sound with little hint of colouring or noise. What I find most impressive is the marked reduction of excessive sibilance from certain "bright" recordings, the relaxed yet natural character of the bass , deep and wide sound field with a dark silent background despite the early days. However,there is still a detectable but minor degree of "heaviness" and a little brittleness in the the top end which, I am confident, will be resolved when fully burned-in. There is still a long way to go before the full potential is realised and I anticipate much more significant improvement in the weeks to come, like the other LessLoss products already in use in my system. Experience with products like the use of V-Caps in audio components suggests a full burn-in period of 400-600 hours is on the cards.
I was already very happy with my system before I had the LessLoss Firewall Modules and LessLoss DFPC Signature Power Cables installed on every component in both of my modest systems and was initially surprised how much they had contributed to the significant improvement to the sound. One of my audiophile friends was so impressed by them when we tested them on his system that he has since purchased them.
I'm no tech expert but fortunate to possess a musical background, having played the violin and piano, listening to classical music since early childhood and having enjoyed the fabulous concerts and operas during the many years living in London. This has helped in discerning between "true live natural sound" and "electronic sound". For me the ENJOYMENT and APPRECIATION of good music is the prime objective, not the hype of owning the most expensive audio equipment to brag about.
I could not be more impressed with the professional manner and prompt service in which Louis runs LessLoss - always ready to answer any queries in an honest manner without the air of aloof arrogance we sometimes encounter with some so-called "experts". Thank you Louis.

This is an absolutely wonderful product I ever come across with such price. I ordered four units, received two and the other two on it way. By using one for CD transport and the other on power amp, my system is like giving a new life, it sound totally different. With tight solid bass, sweet vocal, great dimensional sound stage and depth. Amazing, amazing.
Homage to Time

I am a real fan of LessLoss products. I made a decision three years ago to change the cables in my system as I was converting all signal cables from single ended to balanced. At the time, it would have costed me thousands of dollars to change the cables in my system. An AudigoN member recommended that I do some research on LessLoss products. He said there is no other company that can provide the value to performance ratio like LessLoss. I took a blind leap of faith and started purchasing power cords, speaker cables and balanced signal cables.
I was changing my cabling from Stealth Indra to LessLoss and your cables maintained the same high level of performance but at a fraction of the cost. LessLoss allowed me to get off of the "Cable Merry Go Round" and I never looked back.
Just recently, I reconfigured my system and it allowed me to use shorter speaker cables (2 pairs). I contacted Louis to order new Anchorwave cables; he informed me that the Anchorwaves were no longer being offered. Louis said the Homage to Time series is now being offered in place of Anchorwaves which are less expensive and have solid core conductors versus the Litz conductors. I reluctantly went forward and purchased the speaker cables. The cables were changed dramatically in appearance and construction. Homage to Time to me looked like a scrawny little cable in comparison to the Anchorwaves and I was very skeptical that I would like these new cables. I only installed one set on the right channel expecting the worst case scenario. Wow, I was so wrong about these cables; it was like a veil had been lifted through every frequency. The sound was even more detailed and the clarity was at a level never experienced in my system! Needless to say, it didn't take me long to install the other set on the left channel. I then purchased one of the Homage to Time balanced signal cables; again not expecting any major change. It was like repeating the speaker cable; very detailed with great clarity. I immediately ordered four more Homage to Time balanced signal cables and I am anxiously waiting for delivery. Once again, Louis has provided better performing cables at a lower price. LessLoss customer for life!

Just wanted to add to my January 9th review. Yes, the TV picture is wonderful! Finally got the "big rig" fully back up and running... all powered by the new Firewall modules. These replaced the original Firewall modules which I have used for more than a year and loved. And, just as everybody has said, the new version is definitely better... significantly better than the originals.
My recommendation... don't even hesitate... just order some and try in your system.

For video ------- ASTONISHINGLY GOOD!!!!!!!!
I haven't gotten the new Firewalls into "the good system" yet, but did manage to install a pair to feed the TV. Absolutely wonderful. REALLY REALLY AMAZING! A month of burn-in (and I had them cryogenically treated) these new generation Firewalls make a huge improvement. The colors on the TV are now exceptionally deep and saturated......... almost 3D. The Sony TV was very good before but now watching movies is almost a visceral experience. And yes, the audio is better so I can hardly wait to finish the upgrades to the big system and get it back up and running.
I am so glad I bought a pile of the Firewalls during the initial offering.
GOOD JOB Louis

I have been a LessLoss enthusiast since December 2008 having tried every product Louis has offered all with great success. I thought I was through "upgrading" my system (it sounds fabulous as it is) but was excited to try the NEW Firewall Module. Louis built me a custom power distribution box with 7 Firewall Modules and 6 Oyaide duplex outlets. After 250 hours of play time, I am astounded by the improvement in the sound!!!! My system is capable of ultra-high resolution so any changes are easy to hear. It is quite a rush to experience the 3D space and near perfect reproduction of both instrument and voice. I look forward to the listening experience as the Firewall Module's sound matures. Thanks you Louis!!!!!!
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 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.
