Fredenstein Bento 8 Analog 8-Slot 500 Series Chassis

8-slot 500 series rack with a complete linear power supply consisting of a mains transformer and linear regulators
MFR# Bento 8

Product Description

The Fredenstein Bento 8 is an 8-slot 500 series rack featuring a complete linear power supply consisting of a mains transformer and linear regulators. This topology yields the cleanest power to your modules. Usually linear power supplies can't deliver high output currents, but Bento 8 outputs ±16V DC 2A and +48V DC 0.25A, 500 mA per slot, that's ample power for the most demanding 500 series modules!

Another drawback of linear supplies is that they are prone to introduce hum magnetically from the mains transformer directly into input and output transformer inside modules, especially when plugged into the slot closest to the supply. Bento 8 incorporates extensive magnetic shielding of the mains transformer to eliminate induced hum.

The Bento 8 is constructed of the highest grade components including a 1.5mm (59 mil) steel chassis, Toroidal Mains Transformer with two built-in thermal fuses, all Nichicon electrolytic capacitors rated for 105°C (221°F), etc. It also features built-in audio routing, compressor buss linking and a ground-lift switch.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
