I just replaced all my power cables with these.

Everything is better. My dishwasher washes dishes in half the time. Worth every penny.

Awesome! I'm going to use one on my DVD player whenever my wife wants to watch a chick flick so they'll be over in half the time!


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Chick flicks don't work through these cables.

Wow... I just roasted a turkey in the microwave in 4 minutes and it came out delicious. I'm about to hook up my fridge with one of these to see how cold I can get it to go.

Even better. Honestly, the best part of this site is the mumbo-jumbo quoted here:

These are all harmless to your audio quality, as they are effectively filtered out by the filters built into your audio gear's power input electronics, which is exactly what they are built for. But going from the top down, we have the real source of noisiness which intrudes upon the natural sound of music. This is the non-linear, non-predictable interaction of the audio signal or digital clock and data retrieval system with high frequency radio and even light waves. Not all light is visible, and most of it is in bandwidths which we cannot see, but when you add it all together, the spectrum and energy is enormous and has profound influence on the quality of the resulting audio signal. The reason: in an electromagnetically non-controlled environment, you will always have haphazard electromagnetic ambient fields at all frequencies going in all directions at all times.

Another school of thought exists in which it is the very absence of coloration that is deemed most desireable. This is the school of thought to which LessLoss adheres.

LessLoss has investigated metallurgical parameters of power cables and has come to the conclusion that these indeed have the capacity to color the sound brought forth from an audiophile sound system. Much time and effort has been spent investigating these parameters and drawing conclusions which are empirically repeatable. There is no known method of measuring these sound quality aspects and therefore it is impossible to publish quantitative data and to talk in numbers.


Fail! LOL

Sounds like their research department is really busy. They spent much time and effort investigating the metallurgical parameters which adversely affect sound quality in my devices. My microwave sounded better while roasting the turkey than it ever has before.

It's called research. Not mumbo-jumbo
