prime azimuth sonic basics

assume perfect set up on your prime....you make
a significant azimuth adjustment on the 3d tonearm
on the right side....what are you supposed to hear in your speakers? stronger right channel? Stronger left channel?

How does azimuth adjustment translate to sonic playback?

proper azimuth can make/break the value of a system. With proper az, you will hear a wide soundstage going beyond the left and right speakers.....the soloist/singer will be centered with no bleed to the left or right. The soundstage will have a 3d aural perspective that puts all the players in relief. I use a Fozgometer - easy and accurate.

learned the hard way. Had a problem in one channel with female voices breaking up at high levels. Test record modulates each channel higher and higher, clearly one channel was awful at tracking. It was the azimuth for sure. After adjustment so both sides were equal, the tracking problem was gone and the stereo image was way better. Clearly the stylus was slightly rotated to one side
