High End News says DFPC Signature sets new standard

February 2014, author: Ari-Martti Pohtola
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

January, 2014, author: Austin Morrow
"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."

Stereo-Head (Italy) reviews the DFPC Reference power cable

January, 2014, author: Matteo Turotti
"The improvement is immediately recognizable and very clear on both DACs used."

"The textured detail is increased without introducing listener fatigue. Even the general musicality, especially in the deepest bass articulation, is improved. The performance does not suffer despite the filtering effect, and remains perfectly intact."

"The music seems to come from outside the headphones. The result is very natural and pleasant, very similar to a power conditioner while being much less cumbersome."

"The most worrying thing is that usually when power supplies are filtered, dynamics is cut, but with the LessLoss DFPC Reference, this does not happen, and the dynamics come though at their best."

"Their construction is really good, and, in spite of their thickness, are flexible and easy to handle."

"These cables will significantly improve the performance of your digital source in the first place, but they also work really well on the amp, without sacrificing dynamics."

"The LessLoss DFPC Reference power cables are the best we've ever tried."

Mono and Stereo published performance results with DFPC Reference

October, 2013, author: Matej Isak
"The LessLoss DFPC Signature power cord already thoroughly established itself among cables several times its price. Because of its real world performance."

"The DFPC Signature is the cable with which I can demonstrate real and instant change in a most easy and direct demonstration. Even non-audiophiles can hear the obvious difference. There's no listener prepping or special training needed. An instant shift in performance change is perceived."

"At the risk of appearing pathetic, I felt that my review itself owes it to the performance level of the new DFPC Reference to at least represent an attempt at doing it some justice."

"...pure electrical power fluidity, transparency and stressless impact. Not many power cables are capable of being such a transparent medium."

"The LessLoss DFPC Reference power cord offers both transparency and dynamic potency impressively. We're talking here not about jumping one or two steps upwards, but a whole flight of stairs in one step."

"The actual possible illusion of certain recorded musical events being not envisioned but in fact materialised is what separates the countless shiny offerings found on the market today from the very special ones which do indeed deliver the 'magic'."

"The new LessLoss DFPC Reference builds upon the LessLoss DFPC Signature series with serious, undeniable impact. They inherited the basic advantages of the DFPC series while adding a new dimension of what I'd venture to call 'dynamic simplicity.'"

pf (Positive-Feedback) magazine reviews the Blackbody and DFPC

June, 2013, author: Jeremy Kipnis
"The following depicts my personal experience with the Blackbodies over the course of one year. I did not want to rush publishing my observations because of the novel nature of the matter, and my initial cautious skepticism."

"Virtually grain-free presentation."

"Expanded and explosive dynamics with intricate low level details."

"Much more spacious sound staging with more stable and seemingly larger presentation size."

"Increased focus and weight of imaging featuring correct tembral presentation."

"Quieter background leading to a blacker black–perceivably longer reverb tails."

"More visceral and palpable (sound "freed from the confines" of the electronics)."

"The harmonic structure of instruments and the acoustic space itself all show a new (inter)related connection amongst themselves along with a wholeness of sonic presentation within the hall which was simply not audible before."

"The sense of strain that was present above a certain volume level during playback of known materials is no longer as present."

"Inner details of the recorded acoustic venue and the placement of individual instruments within that space has become vastly more solid and life-like, tangible and palpable."

"In spite of hearing this performance many hundreds of times, I now find myself hearing YET NEW things I have never heard, before."

"Inner harmonies are now clear during both the most massive and the most silent moments. And the degree to which the soundstage hangs free from the speakers is now palpable and visceral, very much the way the best analog discs and tapes sound!"

"There is a new level of detail present in the playback, which has been completely obscured until now."

"The tonal quality of the instruments (and even voices) became fuller in the bass registers, while the treble became both smoother and more open and extended."

"The presentation exhibited a much greater degree of bloom with much tighter dynamics."

"This made everything I played sound more realistic and less like listening to a recording."

"I hear much more space being delineated along with great textural information about the individual instruments and the people playing them."

"More explosive dynamics with wider soundstage dimensions and clearer anchoring of the individual acoustic elements within it. I would call the difference substantial!"

"If your audio system has teeth and nails, then the DFPC power cords will deliver all the power and music, but remove the artificial bite and scratch that affect most every playback system."

"Find some seriously hidden wonders that have been lurking behind the HF noise and distortion. It will wake up your entire system and make your music library sound new; they are that caliber of an investment."

"Together, the Blackbody and DFPC power cord provide a reliable method of absorbing and deflecting both wire-bound and airborne electronic garbage from getting into your sound (and video) system; much for the better, as you will soon hear."

"DFPCs and Blackbody units confer a progressively more focused, holographic, and dynamic sound."

"Makes almost any priced system sound more like listening past the recording technology and feeling like you are listening to the real thing!"

"The DFPC power cords strip away further grit, grain, hash, and haze from the sound, resulting in a far less electronic sounding stereophonic reproduction."

"These two different approaches to EM field management and containment offer one of the few scientifically based audio (and video) tweaks to have crossed my path in my four plus decades as a professional audio engineer."

"Highly recommended!"

pf (Positive-Feedback) magazine reviews the DFPC Signature

June, 2013, author: Danny Kaey
"DFPC Signature inserted a sense of calm to the system that was quite a bit more than just ordinary."

"Most of the times that I have heard a component do that, however, it achieved said results by taming just about everything else too, thus whilst offering a benefit on one end, it introduced a new set of problems elsewhere. Apparently the DFPC Signature cables don't have that effect."

"More dynamic, more palpable, more fantastic."

"A more quiet background produced a more relaxed, more open sound while at the same time not adversely affecting any other musical patterns."

"I was immediately struck by the newly discovered peace, calm, and calamity that I simply don't recall from previous listening sessions of this grand performance."

"The price of each DFPC cable is still what I consider to be a bargain, given the auditory results it produces."

"Ridiculously good performance that is absolutely a value add to your system."

"I think investing in these power cables is at least as recommended as some sort of power filtration system."

Mono and Stereo magazine reviews the LessLoss digital cable

May, 2013, author: Matej Isak
"Louis Motek and the LessLoss Audio team always seem to go a bit further, and in a direction that others might have missed, or didn't elaborate on properly."

"There was no need to push hard and rack my senses to recognize the clear distinction when I inserted the LessLoss digital cable into my system."

"I've used it in all the possible combinations of my digital rig and in each configuration I got a boost in performance."

"Consistency of performance is the hardest thing to keep across a whole product range, but LessLoss somehow pulls it off repeatedly with success. This says something about the seriousness of the development concept behind the LessLoss brand."

"Regardless of whether I was playing Red Book or high-resolution files, the LessLoss digital cable showed its strengths clearly. Fluidity, transparency and that recognizable LessLoss impact on the dynamics. The motif that LessLoss carries across the whole range is 'unconstricted energy.' "

"I would be so bold as to say that the LessLoss digital cable brings the same amount of effect that the LessLoss DFPC power cables do. Louis Motek and the LessLoss team are consistently doing something substantial in the realm of modern audio cable industry."

"When something substantial comes along my sensors go on red alert. This happened again with the LessLoss digital cable."

"Do not overlook the LessLoss digital cable if you're upgrading your digital cables or adding new ones. Your digital horizon will expand greatly."

"Highly recommended."

Audiocavi cables guidebook grants DFPC Original a 5-star award

May, 2013, author: Massimo Stella
"Soloists stand out delineated, accurate and alive, in front of the speakers. Frequency extension leaves nothing to be desired. The lows are very deep and are rock solid. The high range seems light, fluid, and on the highest peaks, shining and can be heard with authority, but they do not sting the ear, nor do they smear. For now, at first glance the key word is "air."

"The performers are present, and emit notes and phrases which would leave you listening for hours without feeling any fatigue."

"Macro and micro dynamics are superlative, and the information that this cable relays is very substantial. The reproduction is therefore extremely defined and very natural. The harmonic content revealed allows one to hear a remarkable wealth of information."

"After listening to these, the additional keyword is "Nirvana."

"LessLoss offers an excellent power cord which we can no longer do without. The music takes on a third dimension and leaves the listener in a state of Nirvana, from which there's no turning back."
