[sdiy] Digital is more analog than analog... and it has 319 dB headroom...

Anybody care to name this brand ?

Whilst I'd trust most of the audio equipment I've designed to run for more than two decades, and indeed a lot of it is, I certainly wouldn't trust either the power supply or the software to run continuously for such a long time.

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.
