    Re: Ansuz Cables & Accessories

    It has tighter better defined bass, a little more holographic mids. Which is strange in that when I put the Ansuz diamond interconnects in I get the opposite from the Shunyata Anacondas.

    May be it's the shielding/non shielding & effects from surrounding things like carpet etc.

It just proves to me once again, you HAVE to listen and keep an open mind.
    Interesting observation. Relates with speakers, electronics and synergy I guess. A lot of my Raidho D-1's midbass warmth, and slight emphasis on bass have been resolved with the Mainz Distributor. Now the speakers respond more favorably and more accomodating with various other cable brands. Still thinking about going all Ansuz for power.

    Re: Ansuz Cables & Accessories

    After the dust settles on my gear and room, I'd be open to trying different SCs in my system, like Ansuz or TL. But the Shunyata PCs stay, as well as the 9m IC. Almost any other brand at that length would be cost prohibitive! I do think the mids were a tad richer with the Ansuz and TL PCs I had tried.

    Re: Ansuz Cables & Accessories

    I am still a believer in single loom theory, though where broad cable characteristics are similiar different brands can work together. This was certainly my observation with Nordost and Ansuz which seem to happily partner. In the finish though the single loom theory is helpful to the extent that it reduces variables.

    I agree

    That's why I'm still scratching my head a little.

    I sort of believe this as well (hence my Shunyata loom), but in the end, we tweak to get the sound we like and if it means mix and match, nothing wrong with that either.

    Ansuz news.. TAS Blog February 2014 by Jonathan Valin

    To put this plainly, the Ansuz produce the most enveloping, three-dimensional soundstage I've ever heard, short of an omnidirectional speaker. Listening to speakers wired with Ansuz is a bit like listening to earphones in that the soundstage doesn't just get wider and deeper from the plane of the speakers to the backwall; with Ansuz the soundstage seemingly wraps around your head, so that instruments are staged from the plane of your ears all the way to the rearmost boundaries of the listening room. As a result, the speakers not only disappear, so does the room.
    Whether this startling effect is "correct" or not (i.e., an accurate reflection of microphone and instrumental placements or the product of some kind of consistent and sonically attractive phase shift) I don't know yet. What I do know is that Ansuz products generate the most three-dimensional soundfield I've ever heard from “mere” wires, isolators, conditioners, and stands.
    For many, many more photos and comments on my visit to Raidho’s showroom, factory, the Tribology Center, and the Ansuz offices, go to: Jonathan Valin | Raidho Acoustics, Pandrup and Aarhus, Denmark, February 2014.

    Ansuz speaker cables absolutely sound incredible with the Raidho speakers.

    Ok, just sh*ts and giggles I replaced my Alpha Digital PC to my K03 with the Ansuz PC I said was up for sale. I have never A/B'd them before, just made the switch whole hog to Shunyata. Well, I'm eating crow now because I think I prefer the Ansuz on my K03 over the Alpha Digital, LOL! Like Jock says, holographic mids, weightier, making vocals oh so tangible and real. Night night/day difference, but certainly discernible. Wow.

    Time to revisit this thread...
