    Re: Ansuz Cables & Accessories

    That certainly sounds like a very good approach! "Unfortunately", I got caught out on several occasions, trying cables from a higher Ansuz range than I had at home, despite being reasonably content with the sound of my system. It was at those times that I heard clearly what was lacking and it was really hard to go back to the original set-up...... The audiophile rabbit hole is never ending it seems.

    Ansuz may have priced itself out of a large part of the market segment here at AudioShark. I certainly like my Ansuz loom, but the cost of upgrading has stopped me.

    Re: Ansuz Cables & Accessories

    It’s a significant cost but I was very pleased with the Mainz8 C2 distributor. The C2 power cables were worthwhile into my DAC but seemed to make no difference to my streamer. I’d love a D2 into the distributor at some point but I certainly don’t think anything is lacking and I’m more inclined to upgrade my DAC’s power supply or go higher put the range with my speakers before spending anything else on cables.

    In all honestly though, I’m perfectly happy with my system and haven’t thought about trying anything else for quite some time.

    Yes, climbing the Ansuz ladder becomes both expensive and obsessive with the added SQ. I put my efforts on Mainz cables as the give the most rewards in my system even if I also have signal cables D-level. I actually started making my own signal cables based on some ideas I had (grounding and geometry)and it worked out fine achieving same levels as D. However in comparison DTC has a blacker background.

    Interesting Mike. It has always stuck me as odd that power cables make such a big difference, but they do - at least to my ears. It seems more natural to assume that cables carrying the audio signal should be the focus of attention. Nonetheless, in the finish everything is important.

    That was a good effort to achieve same levels as Ansuz D with your own cables!

    Anyone who has got hold of the new Sparkz TC3, and compared it to the previous model, TC2?

    Thanks, I would say to my ears I beat the D2 cables and are at level with, albeit slightly different tone, the DTC, with exception of the DTC black background. As usual we all have different systems and ears. Anyway it took me 20 hours to finalize a stereo pair as all is built from raw materials with exception of buying Neotech naked wiring.

    Seems like I can answer my own post. Have purchased a couple of TC3 and compared to TC2. The TC3 is definately improving over an already excellent product. Same qualities, just more detail and even more musical in my ears.
