Over the last few weeks Part-Time Audiophile has published a few reviews about ethernet switches, including models from Silent Angel and Ansuz. The Ansuz PowerSwitch D2, reviewed by Marc Phillips, is actually a part of the new third generation of PowerSwitch ethernet switches–and we found it to make a huge difference when using both the Aavik S-280 network streamer and the Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition.

Here’s the press release from Audio Group Denmark:

The new generation of Ansuz PowerSwitch
Ansuz is proudly introducing the new PowerSwitch Generation 3 series. With the integration of
technological advancements, Ansuz have significantly strengthened the X-TC, A2 and D2 Ansuz
PowerSwitch models.

In Ansuz’ quest to unlock the full acoustic potential of music, their engineers constantly work on
technological development, with an open-minded innovative approach. The result of this, is a
generative and valuable development of unconventional audio technologies and designs that
revolutionize the quality standards of high-end music reproduction. This continuous technological
development means that now is the time for Ansuz to apply and integrate these groundbreaking
technological advances into the Ansuz PowerSwitch series. This integration sets a new standard
for supreme noise reduction and resonance control.

Clean signal – Unmatched musicality
The Ansuz PowerSwitch Generation 3 series has been designed with the aim of delivering a clean
streaming signal to your Hifi system. To achieve this, Ansuz has employed its most advanced and
truly groundbreaking audio technologies of noise reduction and resonance control. This means
that virtually no disturbing noise is transmitted from the PowerSwitch to the other audio
components in your HiFi setup. The incoming audio signal can unfold its full and unrestrained
acoustic potential against a pitch-black background. This will let you enjoy a larger and more
authentic soundstage with vibrant musicality and meticulous focus on subtle and delicate musical

3rd Generation analog dither technology
Analog dither technology has its origin in radar, where it provides a stronger signal and thus a
longer range. Active Tesla coils send pulsating signals with precisely defined frequencies. These
signals are sent in antiphase. Ansuz has adopted that principle into its audio technology. This
significantly amplifies the music signal and eliminates background noise. Ansuz has further
developed and refined this technology for high-end audio applications, and only recently ushered
in a third generation of analog dither technology. This third generation is also integrated in the top
of-the-line loudspeaker series, the Børresen M1, and in Aavik’s flagship 880 Amplifier model. It
goes without saying that the new Ansuz PowerSwitch generation also features the latest version of
Ansuz analog dither technology.

The Tesla coil technology
The main operating principle of the Ansuz Tesla coil is that two coils are wound in opposite
directions – one coil and one counter coil. In Ansuz’s 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 coil is activated to eliminate the noise. Since these noise spikes are pure voltage carrying
virtually no charge, the cancellation is quite good, but not perfect. Connecting more Tesla coils in
parallel will further enhance this noise cancelling effect. The perceived blackness in the music
becomes much more palpable, as does the purity and clarity of the sound. Different types of Tesla coils are used in the Ansuz Power Switch Generation 3, as their individual properties ideally
complement and reinforce each other.

Active zirconium Tesla coil
Ansuz equipped the new PowerSwitch Generation 3, with the latest, most advanced version of
Tesla coil technology – the Ansuz Active Zirconium Anti-Aerial Resonance Tesla Coil. An impressive
improvement of Ansuz anti-aerial resonance coil technology is based on the company’s
inexhaustible curiosity to learn more about the specific properties of different materials. This
explains why Ansuz has incorporated a zirconium rod into the design of the anti-aerial resonance
coil. The properties of this zirconium rod allow for an unprecedented high level of resonance
control, resulting in outstanding musical sophistication that creates a natural soundstage
unmatched in its purity, precision and attention to musical detail.

The Cabinet – Composite cabinet material
The cabinet of the Ansuz PowerSwitch Generation 3 has been designed to eliminate sonic distortion. The disturbing sound influence emanating from the material the cabinet is made of – usually aluminum – results from its mechanical resonances. To eliminate this sound distortion, Ansuz uses an innovative, natural-based composite material that reduces mechanical influence, particularly
hysteresis. The sonic result is clearly audible and reflects another distinctive cornerstone in Ansuz’s quest for the ultimate musical experience.

Built in Ansuz PowerBox
Ansuz PowerSwitch Generation 3 features the Line/Stage section from the Ansuz Powerbox. This
Powerbox section transfers and adds even more noise cancelled signal from the Ansuz PowerBox to the more advanced series of Ansuz cables.
