The Fosgate Fozgometer is a breakthrough for checking the adjustment of the cartridge's azimuth, axial tilt or perpendicularity of the cartridge's cantilever to the groove. With an incorrect azimuth setting, the electrical output from a stereo cartridge's two generators will be not be equal when reproducing a signal of equal strength in both channels, thus resulting in a channel imbalance and a shift of the soundstage to either the left or right.

The Fosgate 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. The meter reads channel separation in both directions and channel balance. The LEDs indicate left, center, and right signal (test tone) positions. Simple and easy to use, the Fosgate Fozgometer is a very accurate tool to help you optimize the sound quality and performance of your cartridge.

"I found the Fozgometer well made, really easy to use, and accurate. The Fozgometer gets my highest recommendation!" - Michael Fremer, Stereophile, "Analog Corner" (May 2010)

"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 APLPTEST ], 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
