In a latest press review, music educator Mark Blackmore tried these out over the course of six months in many different settings.

Among the speakers used were Innersound Eros, a Lowther PM6A on an open baffle, Altec Valencia, and Magnepan LRS.

His overall result was:

"Improved the sound of every speaker I used during the review period."

Here are some details from his review, published in The Audio Beat review magazine.

“By removing a previously unnoticed noise intruding on the music, there was now a quietness, a focus, a relaxation to the sound that was instantly recognizable, even when heard from another room.”

“With the Firewalls installed, familiar recordings displayed newfound reverberation trails around instruments; treble notes were purer yet still exciting, and percussive attacks were quicker, with increased force. Instruments and voices that I had previously thought of as well reproduced by my system were now more truthful in timbre, their image placement on the soundstage was clearly drawn, and ambience was greatly enhanced.”

“Before installing the Firewalls, I had assumed that the treble range would be affected the most, but in my system the midrange also benefitted from the Firewall’s noise reduction.”

“better recognition of lyrics.”

“saxophone tone was also improved”

“I could now easily follow his clarinet”

“and have a newfound admiration for his performance.”

“When a product makes such an immediate and obvious difference in my system, I’m curious to hear if that is due simply to synergy with my gear or if the results can be duplicated in other systems. So I arranged to listen to the Firewalls in two friends' systems.”

“After the Firewalls were installed, the applause at the beginning of the track had more definition, with individual claps apparent instead of a wash of sounds.”

“The Firewalls eliminated the added harshness from his voice, but kept the treble true to the microphone’s sonic signature. The resulting sound was much closer to what I imagine is the recording’s true sound, more like listening to the feed from the mixing board and less like hearing it through the PA. This was a great improvement to an already fine system.”

“the Firewalls did a fine job of cleaning up the treble and improving the separation and clarity”

“After connecting the Firewalls, not only was the sound more clearly heard, but the improved clarity revealed that it also panned from left to right in a straight line.”

“the Firewalls improved the focus and clarity for a clearer picture of the performers.”

“The Firewalls delivered full frequency response without dulling or blunting the leading edge of treble attacks, and that held true with every speaker I heard.”

“this track now sounded like a well-engineered studio recording with lots of layering and spotlighting of solo instruments.”

“the Firewalls produced a more accurate representation of the recording”

“the treble was considerably cleaner.”

“there was greater differentiation between each singer, as a unique voice in the recording’s mix.”

“The LessLoss conditioners took this system up quite a few notches in that respect. Later that night, Chris texted that with the Firewalls removed, the tracks we had listened to had lost their ‘reference quality.’”

“In each case, the Firewalls improved resolution in the upper midrange and lower treble. I was able to follow complex musical lines more easily and have discovered new low-level information in material I thought knew very well.”

“the Firewalls can be daisy-chained in series for even better performance, and that proved to be true. The soundstage grew deeper and wider, with the treble becoming even smoother and sweeter.”

“it produces an addictive result.”

“It needs to be viewed as an important addition to an audio system, and it improved the sound of every speaker I used during the review period.”

“always musically significant, accompanied by greater resolution that extended well into the midrange. The LessLoss Firewalls ensured that I heard all the music my system was capable of.”
