The Fozgometer V2 is here!

The new model features a more sensitive meter for precise
measurements, an easier-to-read display, and the option to use an outboard

Phono cartridge azimuth is a key parameter for getting the
best stereo imaging and sound staging. For optimal stereo performance from a
modern phonograph system, the pickup cartridge azimuth must be properly
adjusted.  Prior to the Fozgometer, one had to use an oscilloscope, AC
voltmeter, or computer program, methods can be expensive and time-consuming.

The FOZGOMETER V2 is a small portable battery-powered or
wall-powered meter that is used in conjunction with a test record to measure
channel separation, channel balance, and signal direction quickly and
accurately. It incorporates a “Log Ratio Detector”, 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.

For best results, we recommend The Ultimate Analogue Test LP
by Analogue Productions:

The Ultimate Analogue Test LP features a comprehensive
selection of test tracks and is recommended for use with our Fozgometer. It was
produced by Clark Williams of Acoustic Sounds and cut at Sterling Sound on a
Neumann VMS-80 cutting lathe with a newly rebuilt SX-74 cutterhead.
