Fredenstein Bento 6S 500-Series Rack

The Fredenstein Bento 6S 500-Series Rack is a compact carrying enclosure for six Fredenstein modules or other industry standard compatible 500-Series modules.

The Fredenstein Bento 6S is a high performance module carrier for Fredenstein Series 600 modules or API-500 compatible plug-in cards. The unit can accept a maximum of 6 modules. The Bento 6 features several important upgrades compared with third party products: Universal power supply: Mains voltages range from 90V AC to 240V AC, 50 to 60 Hz. Increased output currents: +/-16V DC 1.6A and +48V DC 0.15A, 533mA per slot which is about 3 times more than the standard calls for.

The Bento 6S power supply is also designed for extremely low noise largely due to state of the art switching regulators that operate above 200 kHz, which is typically higher in frequency than most conventional switching regulators. They also follow “green” guidelines that minimize power consumption to only what is needed.

Other features include the capability to drive very large capacitive loads. Most other switching supplies might oscillate if presented with large capacitors to charge. The Bento 6S ramps up in a controlled manner (typically 0.2 seconds). Also unlike most +/- switching regulators, both the +16V and -16V are regulated separately and provide separate current protection. Auxiliary Audio Inputs and Outputs Built-in Audio Routing: Modules can be daisy-chained by simply flipping switches on the back- panel. Compressor buss linking: Compressor modules can be linked by engaging switches on the back- panel as well. Multi-Layer Backplane: Increased signal integrity and lower noise floor. Ground-lift switch: In case of ground loops, the audio ground and the protective ground can be disconnected. Please use only if absolutely necessary.

Bento 6 500-Series Rack October 18, 2016
Reviewer: B Morris from Mid Western United States  
I just got another one of these. I like the portability, the cool look of them, (yes it matters). Being ever so slightly overpowered I never worry about pushing it too hard with 6 pres comps, EQs etc. The patching system on back was the deal maker for me and it works, it just works. No buyers remorse, just a workhorse

Nice rack March 8, 2016
Reviewer: A  
So far this rack has been working well with a pair of Neve 542's. It feels solid and well built. It gets pretty warm to the touch when in use, but nothing too unusual.
