    Ansuz Cables & Accessories

    Greetings all,

    Thought I'd start up a new thread on Ansuz, to share experiences with their products.

    Cables


    Ansuz will doubtlessly be a new name for many readers.

    To anchor this it might be helpful to know that the company is Danish and is fronted by luminaries from Raidho Acoustics / Dantax Group; Michael Børresen and Lars Kristensen. There is a behind the scenes Managing Partner in the form of Frits Dalmose.

    Lars and Michael barely need any introduction.

    For 20+ years Lars was the frontman for Nordost Corporation and beyond being a sales guy he is also a designer of resonance control devices.

    Michael is the Chief Designer at Raidho and a leading expert in mechanical engineering.


    It turns out that this innovative pair have turned their hand to design and productize advanced electrical / mechanical grounding solutions which we are now seeing in the Ansuz product range.


    Is the stuff good?

    Well, I am about to try. Anyone else out their experimenting?

    My dealer just received his Ansuz cables and told me he was pretty impressed, but wanted to get them more broken in.

    Thanks Wizard.

    Word is that later this year we can expect to see an active version of the SparkZ, possibly named SparkZ TC (Tesla Coil) and an equipment rack (RackZ?) - the later being a resonance control design to mechanically ground components.

    Interesting!

    Gents,


    Photos of Ansuz Diamond SignalZ from my local forum.

    Early reports on testing of Ansuz vs. Nordost give Ansuz the clear victory. Seems (according to others) that even entry level Ansuz outperforms Nordost Odin.

    Ansuz also taken on and defeated the very expensive Crystal Absolute Dream.

    My own tests are on-going.

    Further photo below of the entry level SpeakZ and MainZ products called POM.

    According to reports posted at another forum, the Ansuz products perform to a very high standard.

    Re: Ansuz Cables & Accessories

    Early reports of what test Kiwi and what others gave a clear victory? I love Michael's products also but shouldn't comments like that be backed up with hard data or measurements?
