They are pretty daring in how they want you to test it:

"Of course. Here is but one test: the assistant holds a Blackbody up behind the tweeter of the audiophile’s left speaker. The audiophile then chooses which speaker draws his interest more. (He will report that the left speaker has cleaner highs and draws his attention more than the right speaker, which sounds uninteresting in comparison.) Then, the assistant moves to the right speaker, pretending that he is still holding the Blackbody, but in reality he has left it behind the tweeter of the other speaker, where it was before. The audiophile is asked once again to choose which speaker sounds more interesting, more believable. (He is still drawn to the sound of the left speaker, even though he believes that the Blackbody is now behind the right speaker.)"


Can someone for grins contact them and asked if they have run the above test on multiple people and can publish the results?

Hi The saddest thing to me is that some audiophiles DO buy products from these con artists ... At first I thought these were jokes ... Nooooo .. these guys sell DAC, preamp, and cables ... The mind boggles .. Out for now ..

As phoney as the device sounds, I for one try and not pass judgement on a product I have not tried. I know, one cannot try everything, but I have heard of weireder things for the electronics industry. But for $950 for one ?? Me thinks I will just google the reviews.

Looking at this so called tweak reminds me of a broken clock that is actually correct twice a day.



I think a nice watch for the same price would be a much better buy!

A $950 watch? You mean like a Nike watch?

Yep, but I made a mistake with the decimal point. $95.00 is the most I pay for a casual watch.


I did call the Lessloss co. but they refuse to sell me their magic box from planet X for $95.00.

No I haven't tried it and I don't plan to.

Maybe Curt?

I stopped calling everyone's new concept products nonsense when I used a Nordost Quantum in my system (to CB3).


At first I say yeah right. But stranger things have happened. Not like I want to spend more money.


Any takers to try one out using an AMEX for easy refund if it doesn't perform?


Hard to believe those are actual reviews giving it 5 stars. Some of the reviews sound like shills... but I have no proof.


Hey Bland... you wanna try it? Teehee



Looks like it came from the TV Show - Fringe.

I will pass judgment on any perpetual-motion machine I see offered without any qualms whatsoever, at any price, even if I haven't tried it myself. Am I missing something?

You beat me to it.



As they say, having an "open mind" does not mean letting your brains fall out.

I have 3 of them , they do everything as advertised. You should hear the difference in sound quality.

Mock all you want. But I happen to place my unit next to the speaker beside my bed. Well me and the misses went at it like 18 year old porn stars.


The next night we put the Blackbody back in the audio den.


Limp as a Nordost Vahalla cable.
