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-320 V2 Tube Microphone

The LA-320 is a twin-tone tube microphone that allows you to choose between the warmth and body of a vintage tube microphone and the clarity and presence of a modern tube microphone at the flip of a switch.

Classic tube microphones were made for a signal chain that you don’t have, so we designed the LA-320 to sound great without it.

Centered around a custom-made Lauten Audio capsule and hand-soldered tube circuit path, Lauten's unique microphone design gives you the musical colour and gentle compression associated with classic signal chains but straight into your audio interface. 

Ideal For Use On:

• Vocals

• Acoustic Guitar

• Piano

• Cello

• Drum Overheads


Lauten Audio LA-320 Wins Electronic Musician Editor's Choice Award 2017


Two Tube Mics In One

The LA-320’s onboard sound-shaping eliminates the need for mic swaps and wasted time. Choose between the warmth of a classic tube microphone and the clarity of a modern tube microphone at the flip of a switch. Capture the wood of a worn-out acoustic guitar and the air of a pop vocal with the same microphone at the flip of a switch.

Custom-Crafted Capsule

Unlike classic capsule designs, our hand-tuned 32mm transducer naturally imparts gentle compression and balance to any sound source, making it ideal for use on traditionally troublesome applications. This means getting a great recording in the real world is faster and easier.  

Finished Sound Without The Signal Chain

The LA-320 isn’t flat – it sounds like music. We believe every Lauten Audio microphone should stand on its own and make your life easier. Does the LA-320 sound great with a high-end signal chain? You bet! Does it need one to deliver powerful, present sound out of the box? Not at all.

Inside Story

The LA-320 is hand-soldered with high-resolution, low-distortion polypropylene capacitors and resistors, a dual triode vacuum tube, and a vintage-inspired output transformer.

The resulting sound is crisp, clear, and full without the high noise floor and delicacy of vintage microphones.

Designed & Tested In Silicon Valley, California

Each LA-320 is lovingly designed and built to last a lifetime by the Lauten Audio family.
