PowerSwitch X-TC

Ethernet Distribution

Activate a new dimension of music

The Ansuz PowerSwitch X-TC is equipped with the exclusive active square Tesla coils and dither technology, which greatly reduces the noise floor, opens up the sound space and presents more details in the music.


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 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.

"The notion that a network or data switch can make a real difference in a streaming system was radical a year or two back but anyone that’s heard what a good one can do in terms of removing hardness and background hash will be fully aware of their potential. Danish company Ansuz grasped that switches can be designed to block high frequency noise earlier than most and makes a range of four models of which the Powerswitch X-TC is the entry model. It allows streamed music to sound more open, relaxed and detailed, taking away any sense of the digital and revealing the beauty of the music in no uncertain terms. A good switch can transform a streaming system and this is certainly a good switch." - Jason Kennedy

"The network switch really is as important as the server, streamer and DAC in a streaming audio system, it’s the fourth element and the Ansuz X-TC makes this abundantly clear. You really don’t know what streaming audio is capable of until you hear it with a network switch of this calibre." - Jason Kennedy

"I contrasted it with a well regarded commercial switch, a Cisco 2960, and this got surprisingly close to the timing skills of the Ansuz but couldn’t approach the transparency that its low noise allows, the Cisco sounding crude by comparison. I made the mistake of leaving the Ansuz in the system for several weeks and got far too used to its relaxed yet totally engaging delivery. Even with the ethernet connection direct from server to streamer the fact that it keeps noise out of the network means it makes everything better, even when the signal is not passing through it. Going back to the alternatives on hand is going to take some getting used to and I might have to see what Ansuz can do in the way of a deal. That this is the base model in the range is something of a concern, it makes as much difference as any other key component in my streaming system, so what are the ‘bigger’ ones capable of?
