To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Ansuz, we have developed a limited edition of a special Ansuz Darkz. The Darkz is one of Ansuz’s absolute best-selling audio products and represents the essence of Ansuz’s product development philosophy in terms of resonance control.
Outstanding musical refinement
The Ansuz Darkz consists of 3 discs. Each of the top two discs floats on three balls for excellent handling and absorption of sound vibrations. Ansuz Darkz absorb vibrations that are not directly related to the signal path. The absorption results in audible vibration feedback that affects the sound quality. It is the natural and authentic sound that Ansuz Darkz resonance control devices are designed to preserve. There is no change to the authentic sound reproduction that often makes the sound seem unnaturally cold and harsh when conventional grounding materials are used.
This limited edition Anniversary Darkz includes both an exclusive selection of materials not yet used in our current Darkz variants, as well as a unique look that visually sets this Darkz apart from the other variants.
The Ansuz Darkz D2W anniversary limited edition features a range of exclusive materials to provide the listener with an enjoyable musical experience with the highest level of sonic precision. The three discs of the Darkz are acoustically optimized with a unique coating of zirconium and tungsten – followed by an exclusive layer of zirconium nitride. Finally, the interlayer balls are made of tungsten, a premium material in terms of stability and resonance control. These tungsten interlayer balls are normally only used in our top-of-the-line Darkz model, the Ansuz Darkz Z2 Signature, but have been added to this limited edition anniversary model to make it even more unique.
Design philosophy – Darkz
When defining the exact set-up and the dimensions of the Darkz, Ansuz Acoustics was exclusively guided by its core philosophy to always strive for the ultimate in sound quality. The Ansuz Darkz consists of 3 discs. Each of the upper two discs floats on 3 interlayer balls to ensure excellent handling and absorption of vibrations.
The surface is further acoustically optimized by applying the Ansuz Signature coating. This coating is applied to the surface in a Hi-PIMS (High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering) machine to create the finest and most uniform layer of Zirconium and tungsten followed by a layer consisting of aluminium titanium nitride. Finally, the discs are coated with a layer of zirconium.
Interlayer balls, Tungsten
Tungsten is a premium material in terms of stability and resonance control. It´s weight is 4 times higher than Titanium which enhances the mechanical grounding even further.
