PowerSwitch D2

Ethernet Distribution

Breathtaking musical precision

The Ansuz PowerSwitch D2 is equipped with both Ansuz Tesla coil and dither technologies. This combination of audio technologies unlocks the full sonic potential of your audio system. The result is an even more refined, spacious and truly amazing sound.


Technologies and Components

Clean streaming signal.

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.




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 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.


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.





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.




Built in Ansuz PowerBox

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

"Ansuz D2 is not the kind of system you can dip your toe into; it’s for orgies or total abstinence... if you try it, try it as a complete system, and if you do, you may never go back. Ansuz’s D2 as a package is one of the most cogent system upgrades money can buy at this time." - Alan Sircom

"The D2 makes its very musical mark as a high-end streaming solution. Introducing their amazing line of network switches allows audiophiles to realize what is in your streaming setup and elevate its status to our other two favourite forms of listening. Very highly recommended. " - Anthony Kershaw

"When Peter put the PowerSwitch D2 with its Darkz C2T Resonance Control feet into place, however, we got our greatest single improvement of them all. It was like the D2 had pulled veils off our streaming music in both DSD and PCM formats, and had increased the transparency, detail, and resultant musicality of our reference set of recordings." - David W. Robinson
