BlackGround Power Base;  BlackGround 8x/10x Speaker Base

Date Added: 05/10/2023 by Mac Finney, Baltimore, Maryland
We'll, I must admit I wasn't prepared for how much the Blackground 8x Dual Channel Speaker Base would contribute to the already spectacular 10x Power Base. From the moment I heard the first track, I knew I was in for treat. It's as if you're able to reach out and hold each note & vocal in your hands. Never has the listening experience felt so tactile. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to pick up my jaw from off the floor!

Congratulations on the Speaker Base!! I feel it’s your most impactful product thus far! It’s uncanny!

This is the first 'tweak' that diminishes that subtle 'edge' and grain (that I thought was implicit in streaming/digital). While that sounds small, it is the first time I can hear the sweetness and tonal color of a violin and massed strings; also the noise floor has dropped (equivalent to QSA Silver levels - big!), allowing me to hear things I never heard before, and the subtle timing cues that communicate emotional intent. Last, space - the soundstage has expanded, and instruments are just 'there' (hearing the hall sound more explicitly - indeed the decays are magnificent!). Small sonic changes but huge musical gains. I hear NONE of the softness that 6 Moons heard from the mains Blackground (indeed, I don't hear that with mine) - to my ears, 'PRAT' and emotional involvement have improved! I get however that some might hear less 'edgy' transients - but to me, that is more natural and realistic.

BlackGround Speaker Base

Date Added: 07/10/2023 
After my initial experience with the BlackGround Power Base 10x in February and March, I had my doubts that another one of these beautiful wooden boxes would help. In fact, did I need any help? The answer turned out to be yes - indeed.

The areas the 8x Speaker Base has improved are darker background, focus and imaging. With the Speaker Base, I can now fully enjoy choral works. Individual voices are laid out in the soundstage. - plus - all of the reverberations are better heard. It sounds quite amazing!

In addition, when unpacking and installing, I enlisted the help of my wife, who commented: "wow that is a nice looking piece. It sure looks better than a black piece of metal."

BlackGround 10x Speaker Base - Single Channel version

What do you do when you have reached the point that your system seems perfect, and you think there is NO WAY there could have any more transparency, depth, decay, texture, grip, extension, tonal purity, liquidity, bass, micro/macro dynamics, or emotional impact?

After adding the BlackGround 10x Speaker Base - Single Channel version I found the answer. Some changes are just incremental, while others are transformational, or revelatory. The change that I experienced could only be described as TELEPORTATIONAL. All of the existing system attributes were magnified in such a way as to induce an altered state of total whole mind/body involvement. The sound has a new level of dimensionality which is absolutely mesmerizing. The Blackground for Speakers simply allows the entire system to breathe without restraint. Hearing such an expansive breadth in nuance and dynamic impact makes each song sound as though it was never completely appreciated before, while at the same time allowing for complete immersion not just in the sound; but in the music itself. My initial impression was that every component in the system had received a major upgrade. I am still in the infatuation stage, but make no mistake, this is a serious wholesale sonic upgrade. What more could be asked for? Oh yeah, there is always the Stellar power cord upgrade. How could it still get any better?

See review dated 2/23/23 By Joshua J. Wright for context.

Date Added: 01/09/2024 by KH
I have been a supporter and believer of LessLoss product since 2023.

I am currently using BlackGround 10x Power Base, BlackGround 8x Speaker Base, Firewall 640x and also 5 Stellar power cords….

I took the opportunity of the upgrade program to upgrade 5 pcs of Entropic Classic power cords to Stellar.

My setup is streaming based and I was using the Entropic Classic to connect to LessLoss power distributor, streamer, usb regenerator, network switch and 10x Power Base.

When I initially switched from my old power cords to Entropic Classic, the experience was a revelation..the feeling of “live” performance..the background is so quiet yet lively at the same time..the other improvement were increase in depth and width of music..and big reduction in digititis…please note that I am only streaming music through tidal and I am already getting this much of satisfaction.

Now, upgrading from Entropic Classic to Stellar power cord, what I experienced is a definite improvement over Entropic Classic..the improvement I experience in Entropic Classic applies here and are further amplified.. I also experienced increase in dynamics and increase in bass quality and bass output..the increase in bass feels like I have upgraded my amplifier or speaker. What really impress me is on vocal..vocal is much much improved over Entropic Classic..to the point there is really no listening fatigue. The glare that I normally experience in digital setup is gone. Previously there are certain artist which I find it hard to listen to, such as Celine Dion Immortality..i had to lower the volume when the songs reaches chorus/climaxes as its too piercing to my ear.. but with Stellar, I no longer need to lower the volume..in fact, I can increase the volume now and hear even more details than before.

All in all, the upgrade to Stellar was a worthwhile one and I greatly recommend this product.

I own a number of well know and expensive Powercords that I use throughout my system. The Lessloss is clearly on par with the best for less. Used on the preamp of a system that was never bass shy, I felt like I had discovered another octave of music

Re: Purchase of Lessloss AC power cable. Immediately apparent something is special, it changes the envelope of the delivery of the music. The tripath solid state AR Amp sounds more flowing and used with my Tube SET, more bass from my 2 way speakers

Positive by Buyer Williamredburry (45) on 09-26-07

This cable was the BEST purchase that I've ever made!! I’m not affiliated with this product in anyway, but feel sorry for Audiophiles who don’t purchase these cables. Once Audiophiles try this cable, they will wonder how this product can be sold at such a low price. I’m baffled… In an industry full of snake oil, unethical cable retailers, enormous profits and scams - this LessLoss "Filtering Power Cable" is a "breakthrough product" which blows away the ALL competition at ANY price!!! I honestly don’t know how LessLoss can make a profit while using Oyaide connectors, hand braiding and an incredible passive AC filter. LessLoss "Filtering Power Cable" are sold from a manufacturer /owner /designer who is trustworthy, ethical, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to deal with. Take a chance!!!!, PayPal your money to Lithuania - and you'll be rewarded with great Customer Service, and the finest power cord made. Hear for yourself what you are missing!!! Thanks Again!!!

First-rate all the way! The cables are sensational, and the price is a steal. The 1-2 week delivery from Lithuania is well worth the wait. Liudas and Vilmantas at LessLoss are perfectionists pursuing their love for the art of music reproduction.
