IME, Lessloss power cord has the effect of adding a good power conditioner to the system by itself without an actual power conditioner. If one uses Lessloss cord into power conditioner, one gets the predictable effect of too much filtering, e.g. "rolled off" top end. Lessloss is the only cord I have ever tried that sounds better straight from the wall (vs. my battery-backed pure sine-wave regenerator).

They sounded much better directly into the wall.

Interesting. After your comment I decided to plug my Lessloss PCs connected to a dac and cdp directly into wall socket. Results were spectacularly disappointing - much more crimped, flat, less dynamic, less bass and nowhere near the natural staging of instruments. I plugged the Lessloss PCs back into the Moldwire powerstrip that is connected to Adept Response which is connected to Variac which is connected to wall outlet and the magic returned. The power outlets are dedicated to stereo but even by separating analog and digital I didn't like the wall outlet. I don't know how much is AdeptResponse and how much variac, or how much is just my imagination.
I'm always fascinated by people's experiences with their systems and how different the results can be.
I use the Alan Maher PE products (not your traditional type of power conditioning) and these were in the system with the LessLoss cable. Funny, Liudas never advised me to take them out and he was standing in the same room I was. I would think if his cables were sensitive to power conditioning he would have mentioned that. Of course we used his cables with the LessLoss power conditioner in my system as well.
