ELECTRICAL GROUNDING

How to set up and optimize your Ansuz Mainz system.

SOUND INVESTMENTS
To get the full potential out of any audio/video system it is crucial that your supply of current is as good as possible. When your electronic components are demanding current from the grid, it is important that nothing is limiting or slowing down the delivery of instant power.
The Ansuz Mainz concept can be designed to match any Hi-Fi or High End system and are upgradable to satisfy even the highest demands.

CABLE LENGTHS MATTERS
Due to the construction of Ansuz cables, you will always get a more positive influence on the sound quality when using longer cables. Obviously, there are limitations to how long cables you want in your system. However, any Ansuz cable in two meter will clearly sound better than a one meter – a four-meter cable performs even better….

QUALITY LEVEL IS SUPERIOR TO CABLE LENGTHS
An Ansuz cable in a higher quality level will outperform any length of cable from a lower level. So, if you do not need the length a 4 meter Ansuz A2 you should rather go for a 2 meter Ansuz C2.

ELECTRICAL GROUNDING
All Ansuz Mainz cables feature DGC technology® (Direct Ground Connector). With all your components connected with Mainz cables to an Ansuz Mainz8 power distributor, you will minimize the ground potential between your devices and thus minimize ground current and signal induced fluctuations.
It can be an advantage to connect Ansuz Mainz cables to a grounded wall power socket. However, it is not crucial, if you use an Ansuz power distributor. The Ansuz Mainz8 features an extremely low impedance star-grounding configuration.

POWER HARMONIZATION

Beside efficient power and ground distribution noise suppression is one of the key features of the Ansuz Mainz8 power distributors. The Ansuz Sparkz noise cancellation system is very different from the technology used in power conditioners, as it works parallel to the current feed by adding countersignals to the detected noise signals. The effect is less smearing of the details, higher dynamic contrast on a darker background to the music - Without lowering the energy and musical liveliness that most power conductors has a tendency to do!

GET YOU PRIORITIES RIGHT

Not that many years ago, every audiophile would first focus on the speaker wires and then work his way backwards through the system. These days we know better. First you need to establish a solid basis – a good power structure with efficient electrical grounding. Then you can focus on speaker wires and interconnects. 

PRIORITIES FOR THE POWER STRUCTURE:

1. Priority the first power cord -from the wall outlet to the distributor.
2. Priority the heard of the system. The power- & ground-distributor.
3. Priority the power cord for the main component – integrated- or pre-amplifier.
4. Priority power cord(s) for the power amplifiers.
5. Priority power cords for the sources – analog before digital.
