Activate a New Dimension of Music
The Ansuz PowerSwitch X-TC 3 is upgraded with the latest Ansuz technologies, the Zirconium Tesla coil which allows even better resonance control and the Dither technology in its 3rd generation, which is a further optimization to open the soundscape even more. The streaming signal is presented with a huge soundscape with more details in the music.
The Ansuz PowerSwitch has been designed with the aim of delivering a very clean streaming signal to the hi-fi system. To achieve this, Ansuz employs its most advanced and truly groundbreaking audio technologies of noise reduction and resonance control. Ansuz audio technologies ensure that virtually no noise is transmitted from the PowerSwitch to the audio components.
Natural-Based Composite Cabinet Material
The cabinet design is an important Ansuz characteristic and is designed to eliminates sonic distortion. The disturbing sonic influence, that emanates from cabinets made from aluminum are the result of aluminum's mechanical resonance.
To eliminate this sonic distortion, the challenge was to minimize the use of aluminum in the cabinet. Ansuz’s sister company Aavik tested various materials and designed an innovative natural-based composite material, which reduces mechanical influence, - particularly hysteresis.
The sonic result of our natural based composite is distinctly audible and is a cornerstone of Ansuz’s quest for the ultimate music experience.
Noise Control Technology by Ansuz
The Tesla Coil Principle
The key principle of the Tesla coil is two coils wound in opposite directions, one coil and one counter coil. When one coil encounters a voltage spike, a counter spike is simultaneously activated in the other to eliminate the noise. Adding more Tesla coils in parallel increases the noise cancellation. Ansuz uses various types of Tesla coils to complement and reinforce each other.
Analog dither originated in the field of radar, where it ensured a stronger signal and thus greater range. In Audio Group Denmark products, active Tesla coils receive pulsating dither signals at precisely defined frequencies. This dither process pushes back against the noise floor and amplifies the musical signal, delivering a cleaner, purer musical performance.
Active Zirconium Anti-Aerial Tesla Coils by Ansuz
All cables act as antennas for unwanted airborne RF noise. An active Tesla coil wound on the external part of a cable prevents the cable from absorbing the RF noise, which instead is canceled by the coil.
Ansuz has implemented a zirconium bar in their anti aerial coil design. The mechanical properties of the zirconium allow for unprecedented resonance control, resulting in outstanding musical refinement and creating a natural soundstage unrivalled in purity, precision and musical detail.
Active square Tesla coil
The active square Tesla coils are embedded in our printed circuit boards – a coil on the top and the counter coil on the back. The principle is exactly the same as the active Tesla coil and thus has a greater ability to eliminate noise than the passive Tesla coils.
3rd Generation Analog Dither Technology by Ansuz
Our new 3rd generation design incorporates more-effective dither frequencies, pushing back against the noise floor even more, opening up the sound stage and allowing the tiniest details of a recording to be heard.
Built in Ansuz PowerBox
Ansuz PowerSwitch features the Line/Digital section from the Ansuz Powerbox. This section transfers and adds even more noise cancelled signal from the Ansuz PowerBox to the more advanced series of Ansuz cables.
