Talking about reliability.
Last year I went to a concert where PA was done with one of those "can 
run two decades unattended" console. After a few songs they had to 
literally tell the people so stand still for 5 minutes as they need to 
"reset the audio system". Some channels were muted and the sound 
engineers had no idea why. Seing their faces was priceless.
They switched to backup console and the concert continued.
