DFPC Signature and Reference: Silent Cables with a Message

October, 2014, author: Werner Ero
As a matter of policy, Dutch audiophile print magazine Music Emotion only reviews gear distributed by official local Benelux distributors. On this occasion, they make an exception to their policy and feature a rare review of the DFPC Signature and Reference power cables, available directly from LessLoss.com.



"LessLoss products possess sonic characteristics that are clearly different and in some cases even better than most others."

"They are very balanced and smooth, without tiring fake accents or exaggerated highs."

"The first thing I was struck by was their unique nature compared to many others. Typically any such outstanding features would soon arouse my suspicion, but in this case it was an audible experience of positive technical characteristics."

"Largely neutral, smooth and highly resolving, coupled with a large and well layered sound stage."

"Both LessLoss cables featured a welcome black background and a structure of sound notably more stable than usual."

"The very high information density (DFPC Reference) is one of the first things you will experience with these cables. The beauty is that in this case it doesn't come at the expense of dynamics, expression or liveliness compared to many conventional filtering solutions."

"The Reference sounds more open, more refined in detail, somewhat more spacious and extremely well defined and delineated."

"In direct comparison, the Signature sounds somewhat more closed in and has a somewhat darker timbre. The advantage here is that where the Reference offers extremely high resolving power, where it may be just too much, the Signature can fit just perfectly."

"Considering their high performance, robust construction, tightly gripping plugs and very high standard of fit and finish, the pricing is relatively friendly. It's a healthy price / performance ratio."

"Their approach and their ideas are indeed refreshing, unusual and professional. Add to this their no-nonsense marketing, excellent workmanship, and product quality, we can rejoice in this valuable addition to the market. Their price tag is remarkably attractive, and delivery is notably smooth and hassle free."

"A must therefore for everyone who is in the market for really good power cables that not only offer high resolution, are 'honest,' tonally balanced and musical, but also provide an excellent means of protection from the effects of dirty power."

High End News says DFPC Signature sets new standard

I did not believe that one could get that kind of sound just by using one measly power cable."

"Ordering the Signature power cable turned out to be one of the best moves I made during my 25 years of audiophile experience."

"I think it is the only power cable at this price level that combines all of these virtues within one solution: speed (as fast as Nordost, but at the same time more relaxed), a beautiful midrange (better than my old Siltechs), excellent top end (better than any other power cable I have tested) and as quiet as the best power cables I have tested."

"With the DFPC Signature you really achieve this synergy of smoothness, relaxedness, and even more vividness into the sound. Actually, not a hint of aggressiveness was noticed."

"From all of the combinations, the Signature connected directly to the wall gave the best sonic results."

"The DFPC Signature [direct to component] did remove even more noise, and the result was overall better resolution. The mid-band became very relaxed and pretty, the highs were the most natural I have heard with any other power cables, and gone was the aggressiveness some of the other 'fast' sounding power cables introduced to my system earlier."

"...exceptional products that really help the serious audiophile achieve the best their systems are capable of."

HiFi Pig magazine recommends the DFPC Signature

January, 2014, author: Danny Worth
"The flexibility of the cable is fantastic."

"The upper registers had a quality of control that gripped me into the performance."

"Ambient harmonics and dynamics were great."

"The cable also seems to extract a certain magic from the ambiance of the recording, helping to give a natural nature and almost lifelike take on the music."

"The cleanliness, pace and kick of those upper bass registers were fantastic."

"Complexity of rhythm and structure is a key accomplishment of the LessLoss cables."

"The LessLoss DFPC Signature power cables have a sonic signature of ease and stability; they open a window to individual portions of the music yet still remain locked on to the performance as a whole. The midrange has a sense of liquidity, the upper frequencies are fleshed out and controlled, with good insight into a layered performance and there's good extension to the bass leaving me to conclude that these are indeed an extremely well accomplished cable."

"There is a wonderful sense of musicality as a whole and a great sense of connection to the music."

"The cables look and feel great, are very well made, and you do feel that pride of ownership when you have one in your hand."

"All in all I personally thoroughly enjoyed them and would recommend them for their natural ease of presentation, musical insight and build quality."

Audio Excursions tests DFPC Signature with extreme headphone system

"The LessLoss DFPC power cables aren't warm, meaty, or colored in any way, shape or form. Nor are they bright, sterile, or top-heavy. In fact, they are extremely neutral and transparent."

"The LessLoss DFPC's were able to extract more detail and show the tiniest nuances in a recording, even through both the HE-500's and the LCD-2's."

"The lower octaves were tighter, more accurate, and had an extremely fast transient response. The midrange wasn't forward or laid back, but sat right in line with the rest of the frequency band, and had extreme clarity and fantastic vocality presence, but wasn't edgy in anyway whatsoever."

"The DFPC's were able to image very, very well."

"I felt like instrumental separation was simply unparalleled, and imaging was spot on."
