Ansuz PowerSwitch Generation 3

The new generation of Ansuz PowerSwitch

Ansuz launches the new PowerSwitch Generation 3 series of network switches. Integrating technological advancements, Ansuz have once again significantly improved the X-TC, A2 and D2 Ansuz PowerSwitch models.

Ansuz PowerSwitch Generation 3

Ansuz is on a constant quest to unlock the full acoustic potential of music. Their engineers therefore work untiringly on technological development, with an open-minded innovative approach. As a result, their generative and valuable development of unconventional audio technologies and designs revolutionize the quality standards of high-end music reproduction. This continuous technological development means that now is the time for Ansuz to apply and integrate these groundbreaking technological advances into the new Ansuz PowerSwitch Generation 3 series. This integration sets a new standard for supreme noise reduction and resonance control.

Clean signal – Unmatched musicality

The Ansuz PowerSwitch Generation 3 series delivers a clean streaming signal to your Hifi system. To achieve this, Ansuz has employed its most advanced and truly groundbreaking audio technologies of noise reduction and resonance control. This means that virtually no disturbing noise transmits from the PowerSwitch to the other audio components in your HiFi setup. The incoming audio signal can unfold its full and unrestrained acoustic potential against a pitch-black background. This will let you enjoy a larger and more authentic soundstage with vibrant musicality and meticulous focus on subtle and delicate musical details.

3rd Generation analog dither technology

Analog dither technology has its origin in radar, where it provides a stronger signal and thus a longer range. Active Tesla coils send pulsating signals with precisely defined frequencies. These signals are sent in antiphase. Ansuz has adopted that principle into its audio technology. This significantly amplifies the music signal and eliminates background noise. Ansuz has further developed and refined this technology for high-end audio applications. It’s only recently that the manufacturer ushered in a third generation of analog dither technology. This third generation is also integrated in the top of-the-line loudspeaker series, the Børresen M1, and in Aavik’s flagship 880 Amplifier model. It goes without saying that the new Ansuz PowerSwitch generation also features the latest version of Ansuz analog dither technology.

The Tesla coil technology

The main operating principle of the Ansuz Tesla coil is based on two coils wound in opposite directions – one coil and one counter coil. In Ansuz’s words, this is called a “double inverted coil.” The two coils both carry voltage. Whenever one of the Tesla coils encounters a voltage spike, it triggers a counter coil, eliminating the noise. Since these noise spikes are pure voltage carrying virtually no charge, the cancellation is quite good, but not perfect. Connecting more Tesla coils in parallel will further enhance this noise cancelling effect. The perceived blackness in the music becomes much more palpable, as does the purity and clarity of the sound. Different types of Tesla coils are used in the Ansuz Power Switch Generation 3, as their individual properties ideally complement and reinforce each other.

Active zirconium Tesla coil

Ansuz equipped the new PowerSwitch Generation 3, with the latest, most advanced version of Tesla coil technology – the Ansuz Active Zirconium Anti-Aerial Resonance Tesla Coil. An impressive improvement of Ansuz anti-aerial resonance coil technology is based on the company’s inexhaustible curiosity to learn more about the specific properties of different materials. This explains why Ansuz has incorporated a zirconium rod into the design of the anti-aerial resonance coil. The properties of this zirconium rod allow for an unprecedented high level of resonance control, resulting in outstanding musical sophistication that creates a natural soundstage unmatched in its purity, precision and attention to musical detail.

The Cabinet – Composite cabinet material

The cabinet of the PowerSwitch Generation 3 has been designed to eliminate sonic distortion. The disturbing sound influence emanating from the material the cabinet is made of – usually aluminum – results from its mechanical resonances. To eliminate this sound distortion, Ansuz uses an innovative, natural-based composite material that reduces mechanical influence, particularly hysteresis. The sonic result is clearly audible and reflects another distinctive cornerstone in Ansuz’s quest for the ultimate musical experience.

Built in Ansuz PowerBox Components

Ansuz PowerSwitch Generation 3 features the Line/Stage section from the Ansuz Powerbox. This Powerbox section transfers and adds even more noise cancelled signal from the Ansuz PowerBox to the more advanced series of Ansuz cables.
