Make your stream a dream come true!
The quality of musical streaming performance – either from a storage unit or from one of the streaming services not only depends on the quality of your individual network streamer integrated in your audio system but also on the upstream network technology. The Ansuz PowerSwitches are LAN/Ethernet switches which optimize a pioneering approach to both noise cancellation and signal distribution in high-end streaming networks.
If you consider yourself an audiophile and an enthusiastic music lover, and think that streaming might be of interest to you, please do not confuse the setup of a LAN-network with setting up a High-end audio network – these are worlds apart if you want your music to sound just right. So what is important when creating a network for High-end music? Make sure:
- that all units in the network are placed right.
- that connections are made with quality cables to distribute data without losing scope in network data.
- That storing your external music server (NAS) far from your music system is a no-go.
As it is Ansuz philosophy to use high quality materials only to create their products, they succeeded in finding the cable best suited to be the core for their different configurations and quality levels – and yes, you can do wonders with digital cables too!
So, when starting out with creating the best LAN cables for High-end purpose, Ansuz learned more of the significant role a switch plays in a High-end audio network, so of course they developed what they believe to be the best performing audio switch in the market.
The new Ansuz Power Switches are like a combination of a new upgraded version of a PowerBox and an Ethernet switch. So, a great power supply, best grounding in the market, efficient shielding, mechanical design with good grounding through Darkz Feet - naturally upgradeable with Darkz and titanium balls. Beside that, you get a built in Power Box to power your active Ethernet and Digital cables (D2, D-TC & D-TC Supreme).
Ansuz learned that their Noise Suppressing Coil Technology (NSC) has a two way impact to any setup; adding the Power Switch to your high-end music system and connecting it to your mains power distributor, not only will the streaming output benefit from the built in NSC technology, but in fact the entire setup will do so.
Soundwise you’ll get the significant Ansuz, black and quiet background to the music. The gray haze that normally covers streaming music has totally gone. That is of course when you use the PowerSwitch in combination with Ansuz Ethernet cables.
Ansuz Power Switches and Ethernet cables actually brings streaming music to the same level as CD's!
The Ansuz Power Switch Box is state of the art, fitted with the best Ansuz technologies. Ansuz PowerSwitch comes 4 models; X·TC, A2, D2 and D·TC Supreme.
The Ansuz X·TC Power Switch Box is a sophisticated Ethernet switch. It provides a great power supply, best grounding, efficient shielding, and a mechanical design with excellent mechanical grounding through Darkz Feet (upgradeable with Darkz and titanium balls). Additionally, the Ansuz Power Switch Box has an integrated Power Box to power the active Ethernet and Digital cables (D2, D-TC & D-TC Supreme).
The Ansuz D2 Power Switch Box look exactly like the X·TC model, but make no mistake, the step in performance from the X·TC to the D2 model is clear and easy to hear. This also applies if you compare the D2 to the A2 model. All Ansuz PowerSwitches represents each their quality level – there is a number of different noise reduction technologies at work depending on the type and extent of the intended noise cancellation – technologies that are hearable.
The Ansuz D·TC SUPREME Power Switch Box reflects another quantum leap in audio technology. The D·TC SUPREME Power Switch Box is heavily equipped with Ansuz technologies. Configuring your streaming network according to our guidelines, this top model will not only enormously improve the quality of the streaming output but also advance the audio potential of the entire music system.
