    MY TAKE: Designed by the innovative Jim Fosgate, the Jolida FOZ XT-R electronically corrects crosstalk errors caused by improper azimuth alignment. In the name, "FOZ" is a tip-of-the-hat to its designer, Jim Fosgate, "XT" stands for crosstalk and the "R" is for reduction. – Galen Carol


    What is azimuth? -

    Looking at the cartridge body from the front, it is the left to right tilt of the cartridge body. Proper azimuth, or axial tilt, is achieved when the stylus is correctly oriented in the groove with equal contact of both sides of the record groove. Improper azimuth results in excessive crosstalk, thus sacrificing center focus and soundstage.


    A Critical Adjustment -

    Optimizing cartridge azimuth (along with VTF, VTA, overhang, etc.) is key to realizing the performance potential of a phonograph. Unfortunately, the vast majority of styli are not mounted perpendicular to the bottom of the cartridge body, so the stylus is not perfectly aligned when mounted to the arm.


    Adjusting Azimuth -

    Many tonearms allow for azimuth adjustment. With those arms, dialing in an exact calibration (using test and measurement equipment, such as the Fozgometer) is straight forward. Unfortunately, there are a great number of tonearms that lack the ability to adjust azimuth. So, owners of these arms are unable to optimize performance… until now!


    Jolida FOX XT-R To The Rescue -

    The first product of its kind, the FOZ XT-R utilizes a novel electronic approach to reducing crosstalk when mechanical azimuth adjustment is not available. Innovative designer Jim Fosgate employs special signal cancelation technology originally developed for multi-channel surround sound. The circuit allows one to correct for significant axial tilt irregularities resulting from misalignment of the stylus or other component parts inside the cartridge. The amount of improvement can be dramatic, making the modest cost of  the FOZ XT-R a no-brainer!
