    Oooh I thought somebody linked to something else they had seen, not that the attachment was the OP's question.
    Yeah it's θ for me.

    Anaesthesia - /ænəsˈθi:zɪə/
    Anaesthetic - /ænəsˈθɛtɪk/

    I think I can understand why you might think it's voiced, but knowing what the actual voiced version would sound like, there's a clear difference.
    It's not the clearest example, and with the voiced version it would sound like the word "these" ad been inserted.

    Listen here to the "anaesthetic" version, given by 3 speakers.
