For nonclassical state generation, we demonstrate the possibility to compensate effects of strong linear loss by engineered nonlinear dissipation. We show that it is always possible to construct such a dissipative gadget that, for a certain class of initial states, the desired nonclassical state can be attained within a particular time interval with an arbitrary precision. Further we demonstrate that an arbitrarily large linear loss can still be compensated by a sufficiently strong coherent or even thermal driving, thus obtaining strongly nonclassical (in particular, sub-Poissonian) stationary mixed states.
