Introducing our Fozgometer V2 azimuth range meter, the unique tool to optimize your phono cartridge azimuth for the best sound from your HiFi system.

The new V2 model features higher sensitivity, greater accuracy, a new Analog meter, and the option to use an outboard power supply, as well as a 9v battery.

Phono cartridge azimuth is a key parameter for getting the best stereo imaging and sound staging. To achieve the best performance, your phono cartridge’s azimuth must be calibrated. Today’s Line Contact and Micro Line styli have a very small groove contact area as compared to elliptical styli, thus requiring finer adjustment. Correct azimuth alignment assures the highest channel separation and best channel balance, providing outstanding sound and imaging from your stereo record collection.

Prior to the Fozgometer, one had to “eyeball” or use an oscilloscope, AC voltmeter, or computer program, methods that can be complex and time-consuming. The original Fozgometer was introduced in 2010 with almost 5,000 sold worldwide. The new V2 continues the tradition of Musical Surroundings providing the best of everything analog since 1991.

 

The FOZGOMETER V2 is a small portable battery-powered or wall-powered meter. It is used in conjunction with The Ultimate Analogue Test LP by Analogue Productions to measure channel separation, channel balance, and signal direction quickly and accurately. It incorporates a sensitive “Log Ratio Detector”, originally developed by Jim “Foz” Fosgate for surround processor steering logic circuits, to measure cartridge azimuth. The readings can be made with a wide range of input signals; directly from the tonearm cables, from the output of a phono stage, or from a tape output, without affecting accuracy. Readings are taken without touching the meter, leaving your hands free to adjust the tonearm. The meter reads channel separation in both directions, and channel balance. The LEDs indicate Left, Center, and Right signal (test tone) positions.
