Technologies and Components

Delivering clean low voltage.
The Ansuz PowerBox is developed with the aim of delivering clean low voltage to the cables and speakers. This is overall solved by reducing the noise heavily and controlling the resonances. Various Ansuz technologies and principles are used in order to deliver a huge soundstage with openness musicality and details. The recurring technologies are securing that almost no noise is transferred from the PowerBox to the cables and speakers.

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.

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 square Tesla coil

Embedded efficiency.
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

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.

Passive cable Tesla coils

Airborne noise elimination.
The passive cable Tesla coil is wound around the outer part of the cable and protects the cable from absorbing disturbing airborne RF noise. This noise is absorbed in the Tesla coil and eliminated in the counter coil. When voltage flows through the cable’s conductor, which is wound in the opposite direction, it operates as this counter coil, which eliminates the RF noise.

Ansuz Active Square Tesla Coil technology

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.

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 Analog Dither Technology

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.
