ausuz D·TC2
2020年7・8月出荷開始

Ansuz tried to make the best out of the Corona-lockdown. We invested that time to focus our endeavors on searching for ways to further develop and improve our product range. In line with the Ansuz mantra: solid grounding, low capacitance and low inductance, we found that we could remarkably elevate the performance of our D·TC series if we applied and integrated our most recent advancements in Ansuz technologies.

What followed was a series of extensive trials and elaborate audio testings that helped us identify and filter out the entire potential of acoustical improvements that would advance our new D·TC series to an unprecedented new level of musicality – so outstanding and unique – that we had to celebrate this with the launch of the brand new D·TC2 series.

You may already be familiar with our Ansuz products and have experienced the enormous musical potential that is inherent in all of them. But the new Ansuz D·TC2 series has now pushed open the musical gateway to the ultimate performance in musicality. The new D·TC2 series advances audio quality and its authenticity from better to simply the best.

Here are the key Ansuz technologies that have been integrated into this new D·TC2 series:

Active Tesla Coil
This is an active noise suppressing element that relies on the mains spike noise cancellation.

Active Square Tesla Coil
This active type of coils is embedded on both sides of the double-sided circuitry board.

Active Cable Tesla Coil
An active coil type that is acting directly on the mains wires.

Analog Dither
The analog dither reflects a vital part of Ansuz technology that we use in a wide range of our products. The dither is adding a very low-level random noise pattern and modulating the noise floor. With this pioneering technology, it is possible to hear what is below the noise-floor. Thus, it provides more transparency and a deeper penetration into the full potential of the musical source.

Anti-Arial & Resonance Coil
All cables and cable screens act like antennas. By fitting AARC in our cable structures, we reduce the cables’ ability to absorb airborne RF/EMI. The mechanism of the Ansuz AARC technology is to make sure that the cable has no definitive length. That way, the cable or internal wire cannot act as an antenna. Thus, no standing waves can be absorbed in the cable and infiltrate your audio system.

Double Anti-Arial & Resonance Coil
By integrating two sets of our AARC in our cable structures, we further reduce the cables’ ability to absorb airborne RF/EMI.

The new D·TC2 series is expected to be available to lovers of high-end music some time between July and August 2020 at our premium dealers.

The twenty5i range consists of four two-way loudspeakers ranging from the compact shelf-mounting twenty5i.21 to the floorstanding twenty5i.24, plus the flagship three-way twenty5i.26. There’s also a Centre channel model and the proven subwoofer for use in surround systems.

Our core belief is that the same ultra-high resolution loudspeaker, if properly designed, can be used throughout the entire recording chain. That’s why our designs are employed at every stage of music-making, from film soundtrack composers’ music rooms to recording studios through to the home, preserving the essence of the original performance exactly as the artist intended. Because the characteristics and tonality of all our speakers, from large to small, are essentially the same, it’s a simple matter to mix and match different models to create your perfect i

OCTAVE からプリアンプ HP 700 SE 登場!!

OCTAVE HP 700 の SEバージョン。

HP 700 SE
The Octave HP 700 preamplifier looks back to a long and successful history, the origins of its basic circuitry are derived from the classic HP 500 model, first presented in 1986. This concept has been consistently developed over 30 years and attracted worldwide attention.

Refined tube technology and intelligent modular technology made the HP 700 future-proof right from the start – an innovation in the market. Now it was time to push the innovative HP 700 even further in terms of sound and technology. The new HP 700 SE is a tube preamplifier that features both new precision technology and tonal refinements of the output stage. Like its predecessor, its modular freedom meets the listener’s individual demand for truly customized high-end setup. Instead of being bound by the fixed audio and technical parameters of the equipment, listeners can adapt the technology of the HP 700 SE to their individual requirements and preferences.

In the new SE version, there are now two parallel XLR sockets next to the two RCA outputs on the back panel, allowing all types of bi-amping. But the modifications of the actual Class-A-output stage are even more important. The search for the even finer sound took place with the help of extremely time-consuming and complex measurements, along with accompanying listening sessions. These difficult adjustments are responsible for the tonal improvements, especially the mid-tone of the pre-amplifier. The tube configuration remains unchanged compared to the predecessor HP 700, as do all the other tried-and-tested technical refinements o this incomparable preamp:

PRECISION TECHNOLOGY IN THE LINE STAGE

The term “precision technology” stands for a circuit in tube technology that has an extreme bandwidth up to 1 MHz, an impressively low output resistance of 100 ohms and sensationally low distortion of 0.001%. Three amplification settings, combined with selectable output impedance, enable perfect fine-tuning of the HP 700 SE to the characteristics of the sound reproduction chain. The three-stage amplification settings allow optimal matching of the volume control to the efficiency of the speaker.

PSU TECHNOLOGY

In combination with the newly developed, high-precision, low-noise supply-voltage stabilizing circuitry, the separate, magnetically shielded, outboard power supply of the HP 700 SE (essential for the low-noise and low-hum function of the MC-input) ensures constancy of the audio output even when the mains voltage is subject to wide fluctuations and high interference levels. Added to this, the integrated control logic system guarantees maximum operational reliability and, backed by our exclusive soft-start technologies, ensures the tubes and the unit have a life of up to twenty years.

BYPASS

The multi-channel bypass function allows the HP 700 SE to be integrated into an existing home-theater system. The logic-controlled input selector circuitry enables activation of the bypass function for an XLR or RCA input on the preamp’s rear panel. The Home Cinema signal is present at all three outputs.

ADDITIONAL INDIVIDUALIZATION OPTIONS: MODULAR INPUTS

The connection possibilities of the generously configured standard HP 700 SE model are rounded off by two user-selectable, optional input modules. An optimized input module can be used for unique applications, for anything from an MC step-up transformer to a transformer-based XLR input module. The plug and play modules can be readily installed or upgraded at any time. PHONO Innovative technology has also been applied in the redesign of the Phono RIAA amplifier. The further development of the RIAA stage has improved the signal/noise ratio, while simultaneously reducing system-related distortion. The widening of the bandwidth enables accurate RIAA equalization and exploits the full potential of analog reproduction. The wide variety of optional input modules ensures that the optimal input can be installed for any cartridge.

TONE CONTROL

PRECISON TONE CONTROL

Another innovation, the optional tone control, rounds off the HP 700 SE modularity. The valve-based, precision tone control unit guarantees consistency of the sound, even at low volume. Precise adjustment of bass and treble, with a 0.3 dB channel separation, allows the tone to be adjusted without impairing the spatial reproduction.

BALANCE CONTROL

The frequency-compensated balance control allows channel-separated volume adjustment in 1 dB steps. This technology eliminates any controller-related sound shifts. Using 12-position stepped switches, the setting is long-time stable, with 100% repeatability.

OUTPUT SELECTOR SWITCH

The HP 700 SE output can be switched to multiple zones by manual activation of the outputs. Whether the output is through XLR, RCA or all three outputs simultaneously, a total of three output stages can be utilized for separate rooms, different speakers or bi and tri-amping.

STEPPED VOLUME CONTROL

The optional, frequency-compensated, 47-position stepped switch ends the debate about the influence of the controller on the quality of the music signal. At 0.1 dB, the channel deviation is supreme. Our own in-house development, the volume control design constantly maintains the frequency bandwidth throughout the entire control range, reducing controller-related distortion to a barely measurable level. However, as a result of the mechanical design of the stepped attenuator, the switch positions cannot be controlled via the remote control.
