Received the Fozgometer for Christmas from my wife but she did not know which test LP to order which was fine by me so I ordered the Ultimate Analog Test LP since that seemed the be the one recommended with the Fozgometer.
First off I have the Marantz TS15 TT which is made by ClearAudio. I have the Wright WPP100C phono preamp.
I have always thought the sound stage was more centered to the left and my phonopre has separate gain controls for each channel. I have tried increasing the gain on the right channel but then would think I over did it and it was driving me nuts.
Yesterday the test LP arrived so I set out to try the fozgometer.
First thing was to calibrate per instructions but downloading 3 test tracks and play through CDP with Fozgometer connected to the analog output of my DAC. Only minor anal tweaking was required.
Connected TT output cables directly to meter. Played track 2 to check left channel and compared to track 3 for right channel azimuth adjustment. They both were spot on.
Next played track one for channel balance, perfect.
So TT is setup correct with respects to Azimuth.
Repeat test coming out of Phono preamp.
L&R reading fine.
Mono lateral channel balance showed the left channel had more gain so adjusted right channel gain on phono preamp.
Connected everything back up and played a few albums.
Sound stage is now centered like it should and have a much fuller sound stage.
All and all easy to use and was worth the cost to know my Azimuth and channel balance is right.
I still have stuff using the test LP i want to check but I will get to that later today.
