The effective Anti-Aerial noise reduction for your audio system
Ansuz Acoustics complements its series of effective noise reduction and resonance control devices by introducing the new Ansuz Sortz. As a termination plug for open input and output sockets, this innovative audio product has been designed to audibly reduce disturbing noise that infiltrates any audio component through the open input/output sockets or through the ground connection. The new Sortz are equipped with Ansuz’s spearheading technologies that ensure effective electrical grounding. Ansuz Sortz are available in RCA, BNC and XLR configurations. Versions in USB and LAN will follow.
Effective Noise reduction by employing Ansuz technologies
Unfortunately, the open input and output sockets in HIFI electronic equipment are an inexhaustible source of unwanted, interfering noise. These sockets act like antennas for airborne radio frequency noise. This noise is picked up from the ground connection of any audio component (amplifier, etc.). Thus, the ground connection is one of the most critical sources for disturbing noise. Since all audio components are interconnected via their ground connection – this noise is bleeding into all the other audio components. Ansuz Sortz have integrated two critical technologies – The Tesla coil technology which reduces the ability of any audio component to pick up disturbing noise, and the Anti Aerial resonance coil technology which significantly reduces the actual noise level.
Ansuz Anti Aerial Resonance Coil technology – AARC
The open sockets act like an antenna that picks up noise. Ansuz Sortz are equipped with the Anti-Aerial technology to drastically reduce exactly this sound interference. The principle of this technology is to ensure that the signal path has no final length, so that it can no longer act like an antenna. This prevents airborne RF/ EMI (radio frequency radiation /electromagnetic interference) noise from being absorbed in the circuitry and then bleeding into the audio system as annoying ‘white noise‘.
Ansuz Tesla Coil technology – TC
Ansuz Tesla coils are constructed as double inverted coils. So, when these dual coils encounter a voltage spike, a counter-spike is developed in the counter-wound section of these coils to eliminate the disturbing voltage spike.
Equipped with two distinctive Resonance control elements
The Ansuz Sortz are an amalgamation of two highly innovative and sophisticated resonance control elements that set a new standard for absorbing any vibrations that are not directly related to the signal path. It is the natural and authentic sound that these resonance control elements in the new Ansuz Sortz aim to preserve. They avoid any alteration in the authentic sound reproduction that often comes along with the use of traditional grounding materials, which distort the sound by making it unnaturally cold and harsh.
Ansuz Zirconium Bar
The material properties of this zirconium bar allow for unprecedented resonance control resulting in outstanding musical refinement that creates a natural soundstage, unrivalled in its purity, precision and attention to musical detail.
Ansuz Signature Resonance Coatings
The Sortz housings come in three finishes. The Sortz Signature model is the premium quality version. Its housing features an acoustically optimized supreme coating and has an additional layer of zirconium as top coating to ensure the best sonic performance.
The coatings are applied to the housings in a particle accelerator to create the finest and most uniform layer and consists of zirconium and tungsten, followed by a layer of aluminum titanium nitride. Finally the discs are applied with a layer of Zirconium.
All three versions of Ansuz Sortz undergo a Cryogenic treatment to increase their conductivity. When metal components undergo a cryogenic processing, they are subjected to extreme cooling temperatures of about -321°F (-196° C ). In the course of this process, the crystal structure of the metal contracts more and more. Alloying elements are displaced from the grain structure of the metal, which now becomes very similar to a monocrystal. These structural changes in the metal have profound effects on its audio properties, resulting in a 6-8% increase in conductivity.
