While there will be loss when using an adapter, you probably won't see it unless you have a very marginal signal to begin with (and the adapter won't be the real solution to that problem).

Think of it this way, you have a bathtub filled with water. This represents what signal you're now getting. You get a glass and fill it up with water and dump it into the bathtub. This represents what signal you'll get after the effort of cutting off the existing connector and replacing it with one that doesn't require the adapter. In both cases, you'll have more (water or signal) without the adapter, but will most likely never notice the difference.
