ANSUZ NOISE SUPPRESSING TECHNOLOGIES
Since the launch of our first products in the audio market, Ansuz key endeavor has always been to effectively bring down the disturbing noise floor in any audio/video system without harming the spectrum of natural tones or manipulating the authentic uniqueness of the dynamics, energy or sound stage of the music.
Ansuz, early on, came to realize that the traditional approaches in power conditioner design have so far failed. This sparked Ansuz’s determination to embark on an absolutely new technological path using different types of sophisticated coil technologies to suppress the noise by specific countermeasures. All these technologies are scalable. So, the more of the different types of coils are integrated in an audio system, the lower will be the remaining noise floor. This will distinctly enhance the blackness and dynamics in the audio performance and guarantee an excellent and more authentic listening experience.
All the Ansuz Tesla coils build on Ansuz noise suppressing coil technology. Here, a double inverted coil is connected to the power conductors. So, when the dual coil encounters a voltage spike, a counter spike is developed in the counter wound section of the coil. Since noise spikes consist of pure voltage and carry virtually no charge, the resulting cancellation is extremely good, but still not a 100 percent. However, by adding more noise suppressing coils in parallel, their noise suppressing performance increases significantly and with that both the authenticity and the perceived blackness in the music will be even further enhanced. In the range of Ansuz PowerSwitches, there is a number of different noise reduction technologies at work depending on the type and extent of the intended noise cancellation:

Ansuz Active Tesla Coil technology (A-TC)
This is an active noise suppressing element that rely on Mains spike noise cancellation. The way they work is to have a double inverted coil connected to the power conductors, when the A-TC dual coil encounters a voltage spike a counter spike is developed in the counter wound section of the A-TC coil. As Noise spikes are pure voltage and carries virtually no charge, the cancelation is quite good but not a 100%. By adding more A-TC coils in parallel the performance increases. And with that the perceived Blackness in the music improves significantly. The active version is about three to four times more efficient then Passive Tesla Coils.
Ansuz Active Cable Tesla Coil technology (AC-TC)
This is an active noise suppressing element that rely on Mains spike noise cancellation. The way they work is to have a double inverted coil connected to the power conductors, when the AC-TC dual coil encounters a voltage spike a counter spike is developed in the counter wound section of the AC-TC coil. As Noise spikes are pure voltage and carries virtually no charge, the cancelation is quite good, but not 100%. By adding more AC-TC coils in parallel the performance increases. And with that the perceived Blackness in the music improves significantly. So, AC-TC is similar to A-TC. But where the A-TC technology is mounted on the circuitry boards the AC-TC coils are mounted directly around the mains conductors to increase the effect even further.
Ansuz Active Square Tesla Coil technology (AS-TC)
This is an active noise suppressing element that rely on spike noise cancellation. The way they work is to have a double inverted coil connected to the power conductors, when the AS-TC dual coil encounters a voltage spike a counter spike is developed in the counter wound section of the AS-TC coil. As Noise spikes are pure voltage and carries virtually no charge, the cancelation is quite good, but not 100%. By adding more AS-TC coils in parallel the performance increases. And with that the perceived Blackness in the music improves significantly So, AS-TC is similar to A-TC. But where the A-TC technology is mounted on the circuitry boards the AS-TC coils are imbedded in the circuitry board itself. They are not as efficient as the top mounted coils, but they are very compact and more cost efficient.
Ansuz Analog Dither Technology (AD)
The Ansuz AD technology is responsible for the analog dither we use in a wide range of our product, The technology origins in radars where results to most engineers astonishment was better in live situations (in planes, on boats) than in stationary land fixed systems, They concluded that the vibration of the planes and ships aided the aided the radar and sonar performance.. Thus, was the idea of analog dithering born. The dither is added a very low-level random noise, by modulating the noise floor it’s possible to see what’s below it, and thus get a clearer picture of the full content of the recording.

Ansuz Anti Arial Resonance Coil Technology (AARC)
All cables and cable screens act like antennas, by fitting AARC in our cable structures we reduce the cables ability to absorb Airborne RF/EMI. In the old generation of GSM telephones, we heard the effect of airborne RF being modulated the “dikke-dit dikke-dit” sounds just prior to receiving a phone call, today this noise is even more present. Today the noise is not modulated in the same way, instead it takes on the character of a white haze, reducing the blackness and dynamics in the presentation. The mechanism of the Ansuz AARC technology is to make sure that the cable has no definitive length, that way the cable or internal wire can’t act as an antenna, thus no standing waves can be absorbed in the cable and bleed into your system.
Star Grounding Technology
Most manufactures of High-End cables and accessories have now realized how important it is to have a strong ground network in your system. At Ansuz this is another thing that have hade our attention from the start. All your components need one -and only one, star grounding point in which all components can exchange their different ground potential. This is built into all our Mainz8 power/ground distributors. Naturally, we make sure that this work at its best when wired up with Ansuz power cords. So, all our power cords have heavy gage ground leads, actually up to 10 mm3 – the strongest conductor in any of our cables.
With Ansuz mains/ground distributors and power cords there are no reason or need for separate grounding boxes and network.
Internal Resonance Control
One of the most dept felt philosophies at Ansuz are about mechanical grounding. Every component in an audio/video system vibrates and are sensitive to resonances. Vibrations comes from even the smallest transistor on a circuitry board to the biggest bass drives in loudspeakers. Isolation with soft materials like rubber is a bad idea. The rubber will at first absorb the vibration, but instance later release the energy back into the component. Now out of phase and timing. The result is resonances in your component.
With our Resonance control we offer the vibration a way out of the component by mechanically grounding. We call the solution Ansuz Darkz. They can be placed under nearly any component. The optimal result can be achieved by replacing standard feet with Ansuz Darkz Feet and then connection the Darkz Feet to Ansuz Darkz with Titanium or Ceramic balls.
All Ansuz Mainz8’s, PowerBoxes and PowerSwitches are standard fitted with Ansuz Darkz Feet for easy upgrade. Our two best Mainz8 power/ground distributors – D-TC & D-TC Supreme, even have Darkz build into the chassis to separate the acoustically tuned High Pressure Fiber Boards from the cabinet.
