Due to the nature of the products we sell, we operate a strict fraud screening process and therefore we are only able to deliver to the billing address.

In the event of a delay, we will contact you either by email or telephone as soon as reasonably possible.

While 99% of UK locations are valid for next day/Saturday delivery, there are a few remote locations which are not covered.

Synthax Audio (UK) cannot deliver outside of the UK and Republic of Ireland*.

*RME products cannot be shipped to the Republic of Ireland.


Missed Deliveries

If you are not in to receive the order at the time delivery is attempted, a card will normally be left to notify you of the missed delivery attempt. This will allow you to either telephone the courier company to arrange a re-delivery at a more convenient time or collect it from your local courier depot or Royal Mail sorting office. For security reasons, all items require a signature.

If for any reason the item is returned to us (e.g. incorrect address specified, multiple failed delivery attempts), then we will inform you immediately by email as soon as we receive the item. From this point forth, you will be given a choice whether you wish us to re-dispatch the item or cancel the order. Please refer to our Cancellations & 14 Day Returns Procedure for more details. For items where delivery failed through no fault of Synthax Audio (UK), you will be liable for the original shipping charge, any courier surcharges and any subsequent delivery charges.


Late Deliveries or Dispatch

We are able to ship almost every order in the specified timescale. However, in very rare circumstances there can be an unforeseen delay. If this does happen, we will make it our priority to get your order dispatched from our warehouse as soon as reasonably possible.

There are also rare cases, beyond our control, when the delivery company itself has a problem which causes a delay in transit. In these situations we will do our utmost to liaise with the relevant delivery company to ensure delivery is completed as swiftly as possible.

Consequential Loss for Late Deliveries

If a delivery is late, then we will provide a refund of any delivery fee that we charged you. We do not provide financial compensation to cover consequential losses, e.g. for time taken off work to receive a delivery, or if the item is intended as a gift and you have to purchase the same item from a more expensive retailer.

Lauten Audio LA-120 V2
FET Condenser Microphones

  •  Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Pair
  •  Ultra-low-noise USA JFET for superior solid-state sound
  •  World-Class Configurability And Transient Response
  •  Interchangeable cardioid and omni-directional capsules
  •  50 and 150Hz low-cut & 10 and 15kHz high-cut filters
  • Optional: 10dB Pads
  • Designed and tested in California, USA


    Lauten Audio LA-120 V2 Microphones (Pair)

    The LA-120 is a transformerless condenser microphone with world-class transparency and sonic flexibility. This uniquely configurable design is equipped with analogue sound-shaping onboard and includes interchangeable Cardioid and Omni capsules for added flexibility.

    Unlike traditional microphone designs that utilize a transformer to introduce colour and saturation, the LA-120 is built around a US-made JFET to capture the vibrance and character of a sound with unprecedented realism and authenticity.

    Ideal For Use On:

    • Drum Overheads

    • Acoustic Guitar

    • Piano

    • Stringed Instruments

    • Choir

    More Than Meets The Eye

    The LA-120’s onboard sound-shaping eliminates the need for mic swaps and wasted time. Jump from crisp to smooth to ribbon-like sonics at the flip of a switch. Take the edge off harsh overheads, or warm up a bright piano. Add picking articulation to an acoustic guitar or perfectly capture a string quartet, all at the flip of a switch.

    Custom Capsules

    Lauten's hand-tuned 17mm capsules provide transparent, lifelike sound with a musical blend of transient response and natural compression. This makes the LA-120 an ideal choice for use on drum overheads, percussion, acoustic guitar, and piano. 

    Omni & Cardioid Polar Patterns

    Cardioid capsules will focus each microphone’s attention directly to where it is pointed, reducing the overall sound of a room in a recording. Omnidirectional capsules allow the sound of a room or other off-axis instrumentation to be captured naturally and with uncoloured authenticity.

    Transformerless Transparency

    The LA-120 signal path is hand-populated with high-resolution, low-distortion polypropylene capacitors and resistors, built around a US-made JFET for articulate, uncoloured, and high-impact performance.

    High SPL Assistance (Optional Extra)

    We designed the LA-120s to excel in numerous applications, but you may want to use them on something extra loud. The optional in-line pads allow the LA-120s dynamic range and depth to be fully utilized on high SPL sound sources like toms, snare drums, and more.

    Designed & Tested In Silicon Valley, California

    Each LA-120 is lovingly designed and built to last a lifetime by the Lauten Audio family.

    Optional: 10dB attenuator Pad adapters
    (sold separately)

    The LA-120's maximum SPL handling can be increased by installing the optional 10dB pad adapter (sold separately).

    Sold as a pair and offering an additional 10dB of attenuation, the pads bring the LA-120's current max SPL handling from 130dB to 140dB SPL.

    This makes Lauten's LA-120 microphones capable of handling just about any source a recording engineer can throw at them, and offers additional versatility when using the LA-120s on high SPL sources like drums or guitar amplifiers.
