Ansuz / Power Distributor

Mainz8 A2

Spacious presentation of a pristine sound

The Ansuz Mainz8 A2 power distributor is equipped with Ansuz dither technology.
The dither circuit increases the volume and clarity of the music signal and adds more energy to the music, which is reflected in an expanded and holistic sound image.

Technologies and Components

Clean power supply.
The Ansuz Mainz8 power distributors have been designed with the goal of providing a very clean power supply to all Hi-Fi components of your audio system. This is mainly achieved by applying Ansuz’s groundbreaking advancements in noise reduction and resonance control. Equipped with Ansuz’s most advanced audio technologies, Mainz8 power distributors provide the lowest grounding impedance, which ensures that almost no noise is transferred from the power distributor to the individual power cables that feed the hi-fi components.

Technology

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.

Ansuz Star ground technology

Exemplary electrical grounding.
Voltage also carries disturbing noise, which has a negative impact on the electronics of audio components. Ansuz Star ground technology prevents this disturbing noise from ’bleeding’ into the electronics of all audio components connected to the power distributor. Ansuz Star Ground technology is built around a precisely defined area within the power distributor (star point) boasting the lowest possible grounding impedance. It ensures that no voltage is transferred from the power distributor to the power cables of the individual audio components. Since this star point has the best ground impedance, all sockets in the power distributor are grounded from here. The system can be further optimized by the use of Ansuz Mainz Power cables. They complement the power distributor with a strong grounding conductor as well as various shielding and noise suppressing technologies.

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.

Ansuz active Tesla coil

Minimized Impedance.
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.

Analog Dither technology

Musical information from the depth.
Analog dither technology originated in radar, where it ensured a stronger signal and thus greater range. Ansuz adopted this technology. Their 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.
