"will audibly improve every setup I can imagine"

October, 2022, author: Dawid Grzyb
"...deep background blackness upon which instrumental moisture, resolution and sensation of the aural space itself blossomed."

"...not only removes excess fuzz, bloom, grain and veil, but it also accelerates sonic MO"

"...makes them more open, vigorous and alive."

"...juicy, texturally generous, propulsive, informational and spatially unrestricted at the same time."

"There's no question that the LessLoss' inherently fetching dark round bloomy anchored sound makes a nice first focal point to stop at and appreciate. Once that early sensation settles in however, the product introduces itself as a resolution fiend capable of casting enormously large landscapes busy with easily served details and pinpoint accurate finely outlined sound sources."

"The Lithuanian's ability to behave this velvety, smooth, atmospheric, aurally gifted, elastic and keen on extracting tiniest dust particles is highly admirable in my book."

"... superbly balanced and free from any obvious trade-offs. As such the LessLoss won't steer a setup's general gestalt in any particular direction. Instead it'll gladly and gracefully elevate what's already there."

"The LessLoss renders music as substantially more flowing and digestible than before, which I see as its primary attractor and most critical task."

"This highly universal and accomplished product will audibly improve every setup I can imagine no matter its core flavor. I also think that it has what it takes to hold its ground even against similar opponents higher up in the pricing hierarchy."

"Considering the LessLoss' price, artisanal execution, usefulness, overall sonic performance and its sheer potency, I've found no evidence that'd work against it."

"It's up there with the very best power distributors I've sampled and the most affordable of them all by far."

"This is a fully mature, elegantly voiced effort built upon very advanced noise-rejecting tech that proved highly efficacious."

"Bravo!"

"This really is powerful stuff."

August, 2022, author: Srajan Ebaen
"An unusually tacit sensation of overall calming – a German video reviewer calls it peace – which for me presents foremost as musical relaxation."

"To many it suggests a more analog than digital gestalt. Particularly the higher frequencies show a removal of metallic grit. The low frequencies tend to become more intelligible and articulate which also affects the midband."

"Finally there's a keen sense of more extended reverb"

"US sockets showed proper sportsmanship by welcoming my AC plugs with the death grip of a professional arm wrestler."

"Sonically the noise-cancelling C-Marc hookup wiring, passive inline Firewall noise filter and the firm's accelerated aging process dubbed Entropic all working inside the same box had a definitive effect versus our usual Furutech GTP 2D NCF. In essence the sound got both faster and fuller."

"Here fuller meant deeper color saturation plus the elasticity a honey drop shows as it detaches from a spoon in a slow-motion video. That visualizes lengthier decays. Meanwhile faster meant upped transient brio. Percussive and staccato elements still peeled out sharply from legato passages."

"Incisive sounds seemed to crack and snap harder, indolent sounds definitely were lazier. The upshot was greater textural bandwidth. The end stops of hard and soft had moved farther apart. Along their axis I heard more variety and difference."

"LessLoss vs Furutech passive wasn't about split hairs or spilt milk. The difference was very easy to hear."

"In my mind there's no question. Despite being a passive device, this new LessLoss Power Distributor is a very active sonic influencer. It shaves off edge and grit like successively finer sandpaper. That installs smoothness and prettiness. It also tames down shine and brilliance with a new textural softness that's a bit darker. Ratcheted musical tension relaxes for greater calmness."

"This really is powerful stuff."

"A real eye-opener. Fantastic."

April, 2022, author: Claus Volke


"You can really hear the effect that it has on loudspeakers immediately."

"I have tried the firewalls with tube amps, and solid state amps. I tried them with full range speakers, high efficiency speakers, horn-based speakers, classical dynamical two and three way speakers and with my Rogers LS 3/5. The effect of the Firewalls is always perceptible."

"There's no question about whether this might be self-delusion or wishful thinking."

"You hear the effects immediately."

"The music gains a peacefulness without becoming damped."

"It's not as though you're sitting in a room and try to damp it out with curtains, damping material, that sort of thing."

"On the contrary, you gain clarity through peacefulness."

"Bass is for sure more precise and I'd say springy."

"It's extremely audible that acoustic bass becomes more differentiated, and extremely more colorful and impactful."

"This is not something that is added to the signal, but it really comes from the absence of distorting impulses. This is how I perceive it audibly, because it was immediately noticeable."

"This is also noticeable in the midrange. It sounds more analogue."

"It sounds more sonorous, without at the same time losing any differentiation between lows and highs."

"So really it's a focussing effect which allows you to hear more than you could hear before."

"So for instance listening to a soprano voice, I get the feeling that that's really a human voice I'm listening to."

"This is by no means wishful thinking. For certain it is not."

"Especially with acoustic instruments, the differentiation increases drastically."

"So let's say, in baroque music, with smaller ensembles, with, say, harpsichord accompaniment, one can really hear the differentiation very well."

"This is all to say that, according to however much noise casts its shadows on the sound, this noise is suddenly removed and it improves the overall resulting performance."

"When you can clearly make out bass and lower mids, this can also have a side-effect that it seems the high frequencies have been lessened, for real musical tones are never made up of just one frequency band. So if we make lower and low-mid frequencies finer, softer, but also more differentiated, this will also seem to influence the high frequencies, as it seems new frequency bands appear."

"Don't worry about the Firewall influencing existing speaker cable influence."

"The Firewall for Loudspeakers don't influence the sound's characteristics."

"And the speaker cables, like I said, their sound characteristic is not influenced, it is merely helped by the lack of negative influence in that the signal is cleaned."

"With speakers the effect is the same. With amps as well. I tried tube amps and transistor amps. The effect is exactly the same. You can still hear all the characteristics of each piece of gear."

"I switched back and forth several times between transistor and tube amps. The Firewall did not influence their individual characteristics."

"Instantly recognizable, obviously better, more colorful bass."

"The changes are definitely there and you can hear them."

"Certainly you should really test these."

"You hear it instantly."

"Is it always a positive change? Yes, I would say so."

"For many, this can be a real eye-opener, especially when you consider your system to already be well balanced and mature, these will take it to the next level. Fantastic."

"Obvious Sonic Benefits"

April, 2022, author: April, 2022, author: Adam LaBarge
"It really works, it does make a difference."

"It was immediately apparent and easy to pick out the sonic impact of the Firewall. The very top-end, as well as transients, were exceptionally clearer and with a slight bit more volume to them. This resulted in the sound stage being more apparent and everything at the cymbal frequency range, or other high frequencies, being exceptionally clearer and much easier to understand. The mid-range, as well as the bass, also sounded cleaner."

"It is as if yet another small layer of the obfuscating film had been removed from the recording."

"I also noted the tail-end of the drum strikes or last vocals on a track, whenever a sound was given time to completely decay, was clearer. The slope of the decaying sound was more sustained and natural sounding, and the lower level tail-end of the sound was easier to hear. Plus, when the decaying sound finally faded so low as to no longer hear it, it did so with just a bit more presence in that final transition from life to death."

"During the music, the high level of detail in the decay was also more noticeable, giving what seems like more "space" between the notes of the music or the vocalizations of the singer. For example, Lenard Cohen's lips smacks were a bit more discernible and his voice, on the whole, sounded less compressed and more fully dimensional."

"Easier picking out and understanding all that is going on."

"obvious sonic benefits"

"bass also sounded faster and more detailed"

"doesn't seem to compromise or obscure the effectiveness of good power cables"

"I have enjoyed the benefits of the Firewall, and like Ken, I think I am going to purchase the C-MARC version, as now that I've heard it, I don't want to take a step backward in performance."

...best I heard...

LessLoss products reviewed:

Entropic Process Firewall 640X
Entropic Process Firewall for Loudspeakers
Entropic Process C-MARC power cable
Bindbreaker equipment feet



"improvements were pretty much qualitatively consistent among the entire group of LessLoss products."

"definitely give the Entropic power cord consideration."

"Entropic Firewall 640X provided a more significant quantitative improvement"

"Firewall for Loudspeakers and Entropic Firewall 640X: the combination of the two was better than either one alone. Synergy."

"Firewall for Loudspeakers and Entropic Firewall 640X and the Entropic C-MARC power cord: better still."

"becomes obvious once you recognize that it's missing. And this is the key to these products."

"It wasn't until I removed them that I recognized the noise and distortion they had removed. Once I was tuned it at this level, I could then easily recognize their contributions on a relatively quick A/B comparison. In a way, it was just an extension of the process of becoming an audiophile - learning how to listen, but at a higher level than before."

"The removal of noise, more obvious in the treble, but effectively throughout, allowed more inner detail to emerge from the now blacker background."

"improved transparency"

"Without the LessLoss the music had a certain low level of what I'll call "wild behavior". These were micro flashes tone bleaching out, or amplifier clipping or ringing or notes smearing - tiny little distortions, similar to what many recognize as "grain" that reminded me that I was listening to electrically reproduced music, not the real thing."

"These micro distortions can be somewhat exciting at times, such as the striking of a cymbal, and somewhat distracting at other times as I "struggle" to interpret what a musical note or a syllable "should" have sounded like."

"this "struggle" takes mental energy and it tenses up the body."

"The LessLoss works against that "struggle" by removing a layer of haze, making the music and lyrics more obvious. Micro-dynamics and nuance of tonality appear that were unheard of before. My body relaxed and absorbed the music as it came to me, rather than forcing me to lean into the music. The difficult lyrics were more easily understood."

"On my compilation CD I have many signifiers; phrases of words or notes that are challenging for a system to reproduce and challenging for me to hear clearly or cognitively comprehend. With only these few pieces of LessLoss gear in the system, I sailed right through these rough spots, and in most cases, they were the best I had ever heard them."

"strips out noise without interfering with tonal quality or dynamics"

"noise-free listening experience"

"I can testify that it does not interfere with tonal quality as my rig continued to sound the same in that regard, and dynamics seemed unimpeded, too."

"it was very relaxing."

"The Bindbreaker footers outperformed the MiG SX and I expect the current version with the dimpled bottom plate will yield an even higher resolution."

"they [Bindbreakers] performed astonishingly well throughout the audible spectrum with my DAC."

"the Bindbreaker may work best with solid-state gear, but you have to try it with your gear. When it works, it works very well."

"my biggest gains were with the Entropic Firewall 640X and it worked best on the AC line directly feeding my DAC."

"The 640X also worked very well on my preamp where the improvement was experienced with each of my sources."

"keep in mind the forthcoming [LessLoss] power distributor with built-in Firewall 640X technology"

"the Firewall for Speakers made a relatively cost-effective contribution that benefited each of my sources."

"do not make the mistake of thinking power cords are less significant than the main components in your system."

"Sometimes we discover something we like that we didn't even know was an option or a benefit at the outset of our quest. This is what happened for me with the LessLoss gear reviewed here."

"The emotional seductress was replaced by the silky voice of a polished jazz singer. Firmly planted in the 'here and now' of my listening chair, I relaxed and enjoyed the music, unencumbered by any personal emotional drama, just experiencing the beauty of the music. That's the essential difference LessLoss brings to the game. Relax and enjoy. And they do it as well, if not better than anyone else."

"If that's your audiophile destination, I highly recommend you give LessLoss a listen. This Lithuanian company deserves a lot more recognition in the USA."

"a major win" "an arsenal of universally useful traits"

November, 2021, author: Dawid Grzyb
"The Lithuanians' goods aren't trophy-fi, but smart-fi, targeted to well-aware enthusiasts primarily focused on performance."

"voice rendered spot on, delicate and fleshy, yet distinct, precise and suspended in a breathing living space"

"supportive bass line didn't skip a beat and was fully controlled."

"evenly sorted across the entire audible range."

"perfectly composed, outlined and textured in a way that was fleshy and free from any hints of nervousness."

"more realistic"

"that instrument's every string pluck felt powerful, resonant, substantial and sustained"

"smoother, weightier and lingering in the air a bit longer."

"On dynamic range, smoothness, instrumental hydration and fine soft edges, the LessLoss clearly took the cake without second guesses."

"its in-built silencing action greatly contributed to rendering surrounding space as breathing, touchable and three-dimensional for a very pleasant "alive" feel."

"rendered the same image closer and partially bent around, to effectively surround me by it to a larger degree."

"had all outlines in check and didn't feel unclear at all."

"landed more pleasing, weightier sonics overall. That was a major win by my standards."

"more connected, coherent, heftier and nimble"

"substantial, vibrant and mighty without subtracting anything from its original character"

"scored higher on firm instrumental structures and humane artful vocal line."

"This fully-fledged C-MARC is geared for a particularly fetching silence and associated spatial blackness upon which all else blossoms."

"more than enough to elevate performance of a vast majority of setups I can think of, and keep any listening fatigue at the door."

"tonally even and safe, the risk of their counter-productive input is vanishingly low."

"In this context today's product wasn't designed to repair, but rather support a sonic outcome already achieved and to preserve and cherish its character."

"working extremely well in my main audio system."

"highly organic and resolving"

"did a splendid job."

"arsenal of universally useful traits"

"proved far less situational than most cables I've come across."

"Its wooden laser-engraved bullets turn it into one gorgeous looker"

"exceptionally slinky, so it's very easy to use."

"utmost obedient mechanical behavior."

"scored far more points on ease of delivery, detail retrieval, smoothness, color range, sensible ambience, tangibility, control and dynamic contrasts."

"superiority across pretty much the entire gamut"

"profound potency and subsequent impact"

"spatially extremely gifted, properly radiant, sensual, articulate and earthy at the same time"

"spectacular effects, simple as that."

"best I have experienced in my system."

November, 2021, author: Ken Redmond
"it succeeded in giving me that '3 am' listening experience"

"a layer of artificiality is removed to reveal a more truthful presentation of the music and the artist's intent"

"The colors were richer, the palette was more profound, and the background canvas was calmer. Everything results in an acoustic image that is less distracting"

"Upon initial listening, I was immediately struck by the change the Firewall 640x brought to my sound."

"The tension that I associate with electronic reproduction in general and digital reproduction specifically was significantly reduced"

"It was simply easier to listen to music and allow myself to be fooled by the illusion and bath in that illusion for long periods."

"It is as if my whole body relaxes and does not feel the need to "work" to listen to the music."

"The entire performance was raised to a level I had not previously heard in my listening room"

"The performers' individuality was more outlined, and the Wah-Wah sounds of the different horns were very distinct. I could tell if the horn was directly facing me or slightly off-angle."

"the Firewall 640X takes applause to a new level of reality in my system. The individuality of the clapping hands and the character of each clap is much better distinguished. Crowd noise and whistling in the background, along
with the applause, were all the best I have experienced in my system."

"quiet details are more fully revealed and subtle notes have a bit more dynamic quality standing out against the background in more significant relief."

"The decay of notes and the sense of space is magnified, pulling you into the music. As the piece progresses to its peak, instruments remain locked in place and maintain their individuality."

"I did not sense any dynamic compression with the Firewall in place."

"I was enamored by the impact of the Firewall 640x. Piano tone and body take on greater weight, and individual notes become more easily understood. The very subtle nuances of Ms. Horn's singing were more apparent. Sighs and breaths took on a more significant role in the emotion of the song."

"Brushes on the skin of a drumhead are more detailed, and I was able to understand better the drummer 'working' the brush on the drum."

"The impact of the Firewall 640x was not subtle, and it was quickly apparent in my system. Many types of information were more readily revealed, the space the recording was made in, the reverberation trail of the instruments, the individual components of harmony, subtle inflections of the artist on their instrument. Voices and instruments have a more truthful timbre and occupy a more believable space and yield more dynamic expression within that space. All of this led me to feel more connected with the music as it sounded less reproduced and more accurate. I will say this 'connection to the music' was more consistently present in my system throughout the day and night than has been in the past."

"I will tell you now that I will be adding the LessLoss Firewall 640x C-MARC to my list of 'waypoint' products that have reset my expectations in a product category."
