The 1RU F200 from Fredenstein is a two channel microphone preamplifier and FET compressor with stereo link capability. The mic-pre and compressor are connected in series. The output mixer allows you to select either the mic-pre or the compressor. In addition, a compressed/ uncompressed mix can be performed.

The mic-pre section features a switchable 20 dB pad, a low-cut filter, phase reversal and P48 phantom power. The maximum gain of the mic-pre is +60 dB, the minimum gain with pad activated is 0 dB. In case the unit is used as a compressor only, the input is able to handle +20 dB signals and is fully compatible with line level signals. At a mic-pre output level of greater than + 24 dBu, a clip indicator will light up. The high impedance direct input is compatible with balanced and unbalanced signals.

The compressor section features rotary controls for Attack Time, Release Time, and Compression Ratio, as well as a Stereo Link switch. Either the compressor gain reduction or the output level can be displayed through the VU-Meter. All switches have dedicated LED indicators. For touring and recording around the world the F200 has a built-in universal power supply ranging from 90 to 240 VAC, 50 to 60 Hz.
