I bought the power cord about 2 weeks ago. I can't say that I've noticed a tremendous break-in change over the time. It sounded very nice right out of the box. I've tried various dyi cords, the VH Audio 4 and the Black Sand Violet. The LessLoss is significantly different than these.
When I plugged it into my system (Shindo Aurieges, McIntosh MC225, Sony SCD777, Gallo 3.1) I was surprised by its lovely tone. From previous reviews I was afraid that the pc would be too analytical in its detail. Although the detail and resolution are definitely a strength, it doesn't achieve this by washing away the tonal warmth of the tube gear. If anything, in my system the balance tends to favor the mid to bass range. There is no leading edge to the sound; the instruments have a very nice attack (not blunt or rounded but not edgy either). There is some smearing of arpeggios. Overall the pc has great dimensionality and soundstage. The background is very quiet, so there is quite a bit of depth to the sound. It does a very nice job of presenting an organic (or non-compartmentalized) relationship to the instruments.
I'm quite happy with the LessLoss pc and am inaterested to hear if they'll continue to evolve. I'd buy another one at the price. I haven't heard any big hitter pcs so I don't know how it compares with higher-priced cords.
Hi Bob, The Lessloss PC's are very good power cords that have outperformed some highly regarded power cords. They will continually get better with time.Mine continued to improve over 500 hours.
Have you tried any new power cords since the Lessloss? How is the lessloss doing?
I am in the market for some new power chords, and am leaning towards the Flavor 4 because of how you described them when comparing them to the Violet, and given that many people say that it is equivalent to the Nite II.
Could you please give us some more impressions on how the Lessloss fairs against the Flavor 4, and which you would choose?
Thought there was a post from the manufacture, that I responded to, but now both are gone.
Born again music lover.
In particular they are precluded from volunteering info, unless to correct a mis-statement or to answer a direct question.
On the other hand you are free to ask a manufacturer a direct question and they are free to answer it in those circumstances...
I have two of them in my system. At the beginning I was in doubt but after 400 hours or so.....yes!!! Transparent, holografic, detailed as expected. Soundstage was wonderful from the very beginning. Very musical.
Only had my 2 Lessloss cords for a day thus I will postpone my full review for a few days. My initial impression is one of naturalness and it seems to make a bigger difference on my amp rather than on the cd player.
