The Easiest & Most Accurate Way to Set Your Azimuth!

This is the Tool for Setting Your Cartridge Azimuth! 

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!

“I found the Fozgometer well made, really easy to use, and accurate. The Fozgometer gets my highest recommendation!”
– Michael Fremer, Stereophile

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  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!

"What used to be mildly annoying at best and a major struggle at the worst... is now one simple operation with the Fozgometer. Much like a good digital scale, the Fozgometer takes the guesswork out of one more aspect of turntable setup. Highly recommended!"
– 
Jeff Dorgay, Tone Audio

Fosgate Fozgometer Azimuth Range Meter is a very simple and easy-to-use small portable battery powered unit that is used in conjunction with a Test Record and perfectly aligns your cartridge's azimuth for optimum sound! It measures channel separation, channel balance, and signal direction quickly and accurately. "Correctly adjusting cartridge azimuth (axial tilt) is the bane of an audiophile's beleaguered eyeballs.

However, the Fozgometer, Jim Fosgate's ingenious and fairly priced Azimuth Range Meter, is designed for even the most astigmatic among us. Used in conjunction with the Ultimate Analog Test Disc LP Analogue Productions , it diagnoses azimuth irregularities by accurately reading channel separation and channel balance, as well as signal direction. Nicely finished with a large readable meter, it incorporates operating principles similar to Fosgate's own surround-processor logic-steering circuits.

Operation is a snap." - Chris Martens, The Absolute Sound, October 2010, Issue 206 Jim Fosgate's passion for analog led him to apply his extensive engineering knowledge, designing an affordable meter to adjust cartridge azimuth (Axial Tilt). The battery operated Fosgate Fozgometer ARM Azimuth Range Meter incorporates operating principals similar to surround processor logic steering circuits, is simple to use, and reads channel separation and channel balance, as well as signal direction.

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. Azimuth may be adjusted using an oscilloscope, AC voltmeter, or computer programme

These methods can be expensive and time consuming.

As many of you will already have discovered, getting the azimuth (or axial tilt) adjustment of your phono cartridge just right is one of the keys to achieving spectacular 3-D soundstages. But how do you know when the settings are right? In the past, you had two basic options: You could check settings by eye and hope for the best, or you could buy a good test record and expensive test gear and go to work. Now, Fosgate’s new Fozgometer provides an ingenious and not too expensive  solution, which is designed to be used in conjunction with The Ultimate Analogue Test Disc  [Analogue Productions, AAPT 1].
 
The Fozgometer is very simple to use. You first go through your normal cartridge set-up routines, making adjustment as needed for overhang and horizontal cartridge alignment, tracking force, vertical tracking angle, and anti-skating (if any). After giving the cartridge about 40 hours of initial run-in time, you are ready to bring the Fozgometer into play. HIFI Plus
