The Fredenstein Bento 6 is a 6-channel 500-series enclosure with advanced audio routing capabilities.
The Fredenstein Bento 6 allows for the daisy-chaining of modules by engaging the switches on the back panel making easy to create your perfect custom channel strip without resorting to complex cabling configurations. A link switch allows for the linking of two compressors for true stereo operation. A ground lift switch is also included in case of ground loops. In addition the Bento 6 features Aux inputs and outputs for all 10 channels which can be used with certain modules which use this extra port for additional functions such as parallel processing.
The Bento 6 provides a lot of power and will easily feed the most power hungry modules such as valve mic preamps or compressors and uses a universal power supply which means that you can travel anywhere in the world.

- A no-brainer at this price... Review by Scott Maple (Posted on 02/09/2015)
It's well constructed, doesn't feel cheap in any way and (so far) works as it should.
The link option* allows you to daisy chain modules without having to use patch cables, it has a ground lift, you can stereo-link two modules in any adjoining slots (if they have been designed with the option as per vpr standard), and if you have compatible Fredenstein 500 series modules (I don't) you can patch inserts via xlr send/return.
Far more than you can reasonably expect at this price point.
*My only complaint is minor. They choose to name the 'feed' function 'link', and what I would call the link option 'bus'. It's certainly not a deal breaker, but I did need to refer to the manual on that one.
