So, I finally bit the bullet and picked up one of these. I figured that it couldn't hurt with the diagnostic end so for me the price is really sort of not so bad. Also, I managed a few small discounts by choosing carefully the website and credit card I used for the purchase. The thing is built like a tank, so no complaints there, either. But, to be honest, I bought it because I had someone complain that a retipped HOMC cartridge had too high right channel output relative to the left channel on a moving coil cartridge; in other words: uneven balance. He mentioned that his moving magnet (really moving iron--really VMS) Ortofon Black was much more balanced--perfectly so. While I'm still shopping for an O-scope, which is a pain because I don't know anything about them and it seems like I might not be able to use one for low output moving coil cartridges anyway because the outputs of moving coil cartridges, LOMCs anyway, are too low. In any case, I have the Fozgometer hooked up to the RCA's on my SL-1200, not passing through my phono stage. I checked about twenty cartridges yesterday and here's the odd thing: Every single moving coil cartridge I tested resulted in a high right signal relative to the left, so no nice green middle "centered" light on any of them except for one. Didn't matter whether they were retipped or not. Adjusting azimuth and/or AS didn't really make much of a difference at all. So just when I'm thinking that either my cables could be bad or something like that having to do with my turntable, I try a bunch of moving magnet and moving iron cartridges, and they all read as perfectly centered right off the bat. Also, didn't matter if they were retipped or not. Some showed glowing in the red left and right LED's while the green light in the middle was illuminated, which I took to mean that maybe on some cartridges, crosstalk was an issue, or poor separation--not sure if there's a difference there or not. So, any insights? Again, there was only one LOMC that read as perfectly centered. All the rest read strong on the right side. None read strong on the left side. All moving magnet cartridges read as centered, though some showed possible crosstalk issues. Does anyone have any insights? I'm brand new to this Fozgometer so I'm still learning whether it has foibles or not or if maybe I've got one that either has a problem or if I just need to calibrate it. But the difference in how it reads moving magnet and moving iron cartridges vs. moving coil cartridges is really what's throwing me. I suppose given the much higher resistance generally of MM/MI vs. MC perhaps that could explain things and maybe I should just double check that it is calibrated correctly. BTW, the way it's read a Micro Acoustics cartridge is really whacko. I'm going to have to try a few other MAs to see if that's going to be a consistent thing or not.
