Manufacturer's Description from Fredenstein

The Fredenstein Bento 6DS is the ultimate portable module carrier for Fredenstein  6XX, Artistic, and Magic series modules or API-500 compatible plug-in cards. The unit can accept a maximum of 6 modules.  Its internal power supply does not need any "wall-warts", just a standard IEC power cord. The Bento 6DS features several important upgrades compared with third party products:

 

Universal internal power-supply: Mains voltages range from 90 to 240 V, 50 to 60 Hz.

 

Output currents: +/-16V DC 1.5A and +48V DC 0.2A (500mA per slot). At Fredenstein, we take power supplies seriously and these are exceptionally reliable, solid and low noise (including rail voltages, magnetic radiation, and RF radiation). Our supplies are also designed to handle heavy capacitive loads that can cause other racks problems.

 

Color LCD Display: Monitors the power-supply status including voltages, currents and temperature. If certain Fredenstein modules are used, like F600A, F601A, F602, F603A/B, and the F607, all operating parameters of these modules are displayed on the screen as well.

 

Auxiliary Audio Inputs/Outputs and built-in Audio Routing: Modules can be daisy-chained by simply using the menu on the LCD display. Compressor buss linking: Compressor modules can be linked by using the menu as well. This is very handy because different compressors generally have different link standards.

 

Multi-Layer Backplane: Increased signal integrity and lower noise floor. Gold contact connectors. Solid mechanical construction and precision metalwork.

 

Ground-lift switch: In case of ground loops, the audio ground and the protective ground can be disconnected. Please use only if absolutely necessary .

About Manufacturer

Think about what is sonically missing in today's audio equipment and how you could achieve better results in recording and mastering? Now, many go back to well proven classic pieces of audio gear to fight the shortcomings of digital recording. Could that be the ultimate solution? Did the improvements in technology during the last 50 years really don't apply to recording? Using technologies from vacuum tubes to Digital Signal Processors, often in the same product, Fredenstein products combine the strength of each technology and avoiding their weaknesses. In addition we strongly believe in Zero-Negative-Feedback, negative feedback is a technique to make amplifiers more linear, but at the same time making them sounding harsh. This is one of the reasons modern equipment sounds so similar. Omitting negative feedback and using an internally and externally balanced designs which are very linear by design will yield a natural sound on a different level, warm, not dull or muffled, instead with a rich silky top-end and an impulse response will simply blow you away. Don't get us wrong, we are not talking about 「esoteric designs」, we believe very strongly in a scientific engineering approach.

 

We also provide pieces of long neglected equipment like precision analog meters. Even if you are working mostly inside the 「box」, metering your analog signal before it hits your converters is still very important and a great foundation for good recording. Fredenstein's state-of-the-art audio technology will help you throughout your chain to achieve truly outstanding results.

In addition, Fredenstein believes recording engineers deserve to have a more user friendly, more convenient and efficient pieces of equipment making the studio life easier and generate a more comfortable working environment. By minimizing the number of buttons and switches without sacrificing the functionality we deploy a clean user interface allowing you to get instantaneously familiar with the products.

Fredenstein Professional Audio Products are designed for audio professional in recording and broadcast studios as well as independent engineers and producers in their own facilities.

Fredenstein is focused to make a difference in Professional Audio. You can expect superior sound and high-end built quality from each of our products
