PowerSwitch D-TC Gold Signature Ethernet Distribution
PowerSwitch D-TC Gold Signature Ethernet Distribution
A golden generation in performance
The Ansuz PowerSwitch D-TC Gold Signature is Ansuz top-of-the-line ethernet distributor. It is equipped with Ansuz most sophisticated and most advanced noise reduction, resonance control and dither technologies, which has been further optimized by the implementation of gold and zirconium. The result is a refined authenticity and a lifelike musical experience.
The challenge was to find the optimal amount of gold in the composition with silver and copper. The result is the Ansuz Gold Signature series, which presents the music with an extremely clear, natural and sonic reproduction.
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 design to eliminates sonic distortion. The disturbing sonic influence, which emanates from the material the cabinet is made of – mostly aluminium – results from its mechanical resonance. To eliminate this sonic distortion, the challenge was to minimize the use of aluminium in the cabinet. Ansuz’s sister company Aavik began testing various materials and designed an innovative natural-based composite material, which reduces the mechanical influence, particularly the hysteresis. The sonic result is distinctly audible and reflects a further prominent cornerstone in Ansuz’s quest for the ultimate music experience.
Sandwich bottom plate
The aim is to reduce to an absolute minimum any vibrations that might be absorbed by the electronics and circuitry, and to ensure that audible resonances are perceived as a natural and organic part of the overall sound. The cabinet is connected to this base plate, which is constructed as a sandwich solution. The base material is a heavy, compact laminate panel with titanium layers on the top and bottom. The base plate is also equipped with Ansuz Feet to mount Ansuz Darkz and best support the elimination of interfering resonances. Note that Ansuz Darkz are optional and not
Carefully settled signal handling.
The conductors are made of shielded Gold and silver plated copper.
The Tesla coil principle
The key operating principle of the Ansuz Tesla coil is to have two coils wound in opposite directions – one coil and one counter coil. In Ansuz words, this is called “A double inverted coil”. The two coils both carry voltage, and when one of the Tesla coils encounters a voltage spike, a counter spike is activated to eliminate the noise. Since noise spikes are pure voltage carrying virtually no charge, the cancelation is quite good, but not perfect. Adding more Tesla coils in parallel, increases the noise cancellation and the perceived blackness in the music increases significantly along with the purity and clarity of the sound. Ansuz uses various types of Tesla coils, as their individual properties ideally complement and reinforce each other.
Active zirconium Tesla coil
Based on Ansuz general curiosity on the properties of different materials, Ansuz has implemented a zirconium bar in their anti aerial resonance coil design. This is another impressive upgrade to the Ansuz anti aerial resonance coil technology.
The properties of this zirconium bar allow for unprecedented resonance control resulting in outstanding musical refinement that creates a natural soundstage, unrivalled in its purity, precision and attention to musical detail.
Ansuz active Tesla coil
The active Tesla coils are current fed, which ensures a much lower impedance and thus, a much better ability to eliminate noise. The active version is about three to four times more efficient than passive Tesla coils.
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.
Active cable Tesla coil
Active anti aerial protection.
The active cable Tesla coil is wound directly on the outer part of the cable and protects the signal from absorbing the airborne RF noise. This noise is absorbed in the Tesla coil. The active version is about three to four times more efficient than the Passive cable Tesla coil.
Analog dither technology 3rd generation
A 3rd generation of the Ansuz analog dither technology has been developed. Analog dither technology originated in radar, where it ensured a stronger signal and thus greater range. The active Tesla coils send pulsating signals at precisely defined frequencies. These signals are sent in anti-phase. This significantly amplifies the musical signal and eliminates the background noise floor.
Analysis and studies have led to new options – and a lot of listening has resulted in this 3rd generation design which is a further optimization of the most effective frequencies which opens the soundscape even more and with the tiniest details when it comes to reproduction of the recordings.
Anti aerial resonance coil technology
Prevents airborne noise.
All cables and cable shields act as antennas for unwanted airborne sound waves (RF noise), which impairs the clarity of the authentic audio signal. The Anti Aerial Resonance coil protects the signal from absorbing the airborne RF Noise. This noise is absorbed in the coil and eliminated in the countercoil. The AARC splits the length of the cable into undefined lengths. As a result, the cable is less likely to absorb RF noise, which no longer can bleed into the audio system as annoying ‘white noise’.
Built in Ansuz PowerBox
Ansuz PowerSwitch also features a low voltage power supply, which is required for the Ansuz premium cable versions. The power supply activates their built-in noise reduction and resonance control technology.
