Jim Fosgate designed the most accurate tool to set your cartridge’s Azimuth. The Fozgometer is battery-operated and is simple to use, and reads channel separation and channel balance, as well as signal direction. Make sure your cartridge is set-up perfectly and it will last longer and sound better!
To obtain high performance from a modern phonograph system, the tonearm and pickup cartridge must be properly adjusted to within a few thousands of an inch. There are several alignment gauges available to adjust overhang and offset. To adjust cartridge azimuth (Axial Tilt), it has been necessary to use lab quality equipment and a test record. Current methods for Azimuth adjustment can be expensive and time consuming. Until now…
The Fozgometer represents a breakthrough for adjusting your azimuth. The Fozgometer is a small portable battery powered unit used in conjunction with a test record (Click here for many options). It measures channel separation, channel balance, and signal direction quickly and accurately.
Readings are taken without touching the meter, leaving your hands free to work with the tonearm. The meter reads channel separation in both directions, and channel balance. The LED’s indicate Left, Center, and Right signal (test tone) positions. Simple and easy; the Fozgometer is the first tool of its kind to help you maximize the performance of your cartridge!
Stereophile Reveiw of Fosgate Fozgometer by Michael Fremer, May 2010 "...When you've got the azimuth set correctly, you'll know it by listening to the improvement in stereo imaging. As you make minute adjustments that greatly affect the measured results, you'll realize how hopeless eyeballing it is. ...The Fozgometer gets my highest recommendation!"
