Firewall for Speakers: NEW PROTOTYPE PICTURES and EARLY BIRD SPECIAL starting NOW!

Dear esteemed Customers,

You already know that when LessLoss releases a new product, it causes quite a stir in the audiophile landscape. Those who closely follow these Newsletters also know that they always get insider information right here before it reaches the general public. Many ads found on various used gear marketplaces are actually made by people quietly upgrading to LessLoss.

You saw it here first

The latest example of revolutionary electrotechnical audio art created by LessLoss is soon to become available to the general public. You, as subscriber to our Newsletter, will now have access to our exclusive Early Bird discount deal. Initial response has been very good: enough so, that we can currently guarantee a 30% price reduction for this first batch of the new Firewall for Loudspeakers.

First images!

Here are yet unpublished, first time glimpses into late stage prototypes of the new Firewall for Loudspeakers product. Production units will differ only in some detail from these, but here you can already get a good idea of how exactly these breathtaking units will appear.

Pictured above, a Firewall for Loudspeakers for a single polarity of your loudspeaker terminal. Here you see a banana plug version. The banana is on the right, connected to a short ~12cm very flexible, cotton covered length of our high performance C-MARC™ loudspeaker cable, joined seamlessly to the rigid and 100% transparent Firewall assembly. To this assembly is directly connected a versatile bolt-type terminal to which you can connect any type or combination of loudspeaker cable: direct wire, spade, banana, or even spade and banana together, or even two spades at an angle between about 45 degrees to 90 degrees. So, your speaker cable's single polarity termination connects to the Firewall for Loudspeakers at the left side of the picture, and the banana at the right of the picture goes directly into the corresponding speaker terminal.

Four such Firewall assemblies make up one stereo set of Firewall for Loudspeakers. Two are for Left speaker, and the other two for Right speaker. Pictured below are three such assemblies.

The inner workings of the Firewall for Loudspeakers are extremely delicate and all stages of production are handled with the utmost care, going all the way down to such sublime details as what magnetic field orientation the units are exposed to during manufacture. This is our most advanced product to date, and one listen will undoubtedly be a most eye-opening and jaw-dropping experience! You'll love it. Even we, who know all the intricate details and past trial stages of these components, can sometimes not believe our ears as to the profound effectiveness achieved. Everything sounds so real, it can be uncanny. Enough said. We'll let the reviewers take it from here.

Over the years we have worked a lot exploring and discovering ties between enclosure solutions and resulting sound quality. One fascinating tie developed here is the diffraction characteristic of light as pertains to EM signals flowing through lensing conditions. The behavior of light and the behavior of electro-magnetic waves cannot be said to be unrelated. They are after all the exact same phenomenon, just different frequencies. May the scientifically minded beware: purely empirical decisions are prone to ridicule and we are well aware of this. However, we are also well aware of what we experience when measurements reveal little to nothing of import. So we choose to take empirical discoveries into account in all of our design decisions, including the choice for a fully transparent housing.

FAQs that have arisen

(1) How about bi-wiring applications? How will the Firewall connect in such cases?

If you are using bi-wiring, such that you have two sets of loudspeaker cables between amp and each speaker, it is still advisable to use one Firewall for each terminal input. You should not use this Firewall for Loadspeakers on the amp output between amp and cable. The direction of signal will in that case be wrong and it will sound quite horrible.

If your speakers have one pair of +/- terminals for 'High frequency' and one set of +/- for 'Low frequency,' you should be using a Firewall on each of these four terminals per speaker. In those instances, for a stereo setup involving two loudspeakers, the total needed is eight individual units. This means you will need two complete stereo pairs of the Firewall for Loudspeakers product. One stereo pair is made up of four units, and two stereo pairs are made up of eight units.

The positive terminal units differ both internally and externally from the negative terminal units. These differences are clearly marked so you will never inadvertently make the mistake of mixing up positive with negative. It makes a huge difference as it is fundamental to its operation.

(2) Is it advantageous, as is the case with the Firewall 64X for power, to daisy chain two in series?

It is. Definitely.

(3) Is the Firewall for Loudspeakers product merely an application of the existing Firewall 64X for power?

Absolutely not. We always strive our hardest to offer only the latest, most advanced art we are capable of. The Firewall for Loudspeakers is a different beast altogether and these two should not be confused.

(4) Are any lead times currently known?

It is too early to make accurate lead time predictions. Some weeks for sure. We have assessed your supplied answers to the public queries we posted in our previous Newsletter. In doing so, we are able to establish Early Bird pricing and a payment schedule which will enable everyone to participate, even those who are at this stage not yet fully ready to help fund the launch.

(5) What is the Early Bird pricing?

We have been busy gathering pricing info for all the parts and steps needed in order to produce this new product in quantity. Now that all the numbers are in, the price for the new Firewall for Loudspeakers, one stereo pair, is set at 1450 USD including shipping. This comes to 362.5 USD per unit.

As for the Early Bird pricing, we were able to raise it from 25% up to 30%.

To make this Early Bird offer accessible to all participants, we are offering you two payment options.

(Early Bird Option #1): You can pay in one go and be first to be served as we work on the production roster. Early Bird Price will be 1015 USD including shipping. This comes to only 253.75 USD per unit.

(Early Bird Option #2): You can pay in two installments, the first automatically guaranteeing you the same Early Bird price and securing you your place in our second batch production queue.

  • First payment will be only a 40% advance. That's 40% of Early Bird. It comes to only 406 USD.
  • The remaining 60% of the Early Bird price shall be due once we begin production on the second batch. A clear announcement shall be made when we know the date. If you need more time then, this will not be a problem. We will extend your second installment until you are ready to complete it. This will make it possible for everyone to participate.
