Switzerland-based company will distribute full-line of Lauten Audio microphones

San Jose, CA, July, 16th, 2009 – Lauten Audio has announced a new distribution agreement with Switzerland-based Sound and Music, GmbH. Under the terms of the agreement, Sound and Music, GmbH will serve as the sole distributor in Switzerland and Lichtenstein for the San Jose, California-based company’s entire microphone line.

Founded by veteran musician Alfred Kamaun in 1995, Sound and Music, GmbH is a distributor and reseller of professional audio gear in Switzerland, Austria and Lichtenstein. “We’ve been seeking to distribute Lauten Audio for almost one year now,â€? says Mr. Kamaun. “We were very pleased to finalize our agreement at this year’s Musikmesse show in Frankfurt. The Lauten microphones are a perfect fit in our portfolio of high-end professional audio products and have absolutely accurate pricing.”

Lauten Audio added to its award-winning Horizon tube microphone when it began shipping three new studio microphones in October of 2008. The company continues to carve out a niche for recordists seeking an original sound; all their microphones have garnered exceptional reviews from both end-users and magazines around the world.

“This new partnership is another step in our strategic approach to grow carefully and successfully as a high-end microphone brand,� says Brian Loudenslager, Founder of Lauten Audio. “Adding Sound and Music, GmbH as our distributor in this region helps strengthen our brand image and message. Mr. Kamaun shows great enthusiasm and understands our brand essence. We’re very excited to begin this partnership.�

Mr. Kamaun has been both a live and studio musician in the region for 29 years. “Switzerland needs brands like Lauten Audio that offer amazing sound and high-quality boutique production standards at exceptional prices,â€? adds Mr. Kamaun.
