Solid engineering and planning is key to performance and reliability, in audio as in architecture/construction, structures and implementations. ... maintenance, smart decision-making, all that safety jazz ...

No traffic disruption while working, testing, erecting, tensioning and collapsing.
That way, with the traffic going underneath less delays and lost of money...consequently.
Lives matter, right.

Methinks that when lives are lost because of negligence whoever are responsible should be accountable and punished proportionally in consequence. It's smart common sense and balance of justice in a democratic country with advanced technologies and intelligent and responsible citizens of any developed country above the third world countries.

This is only my opinion and it does not reflect the people's ignorance and lack of accountability and responsibility.

* The problem here was right there in front of our own very eyes for all to see.
No need for a rocket scientist to add one plus two plus three equals sick six.

While the super long HK-Zhuhai-Macau bridge built by evil deplorable communists survived Typhoon Mangkhut without a scratch.

Amazon announces new "Echo Companion" devices including a voice controlled streamer comparable to the CCA and two high end looking products, a network connected preamp and amp.

https://www.wired.com/story/amazon-echo-hardware-2018/

Also Schiit released a new DAC, the Modi 3.

http://www.schiit.com/about/news/99-modi-3-redefines-the-2-figure-dac

Schiit claims that "Modi 3 is the first product developed using new investments in Audio Precision and Avermetrics test equipment, which has helped it to be the best-performing DAC Schiit has ever offered, when using conventional metrics." I have attached their full APx555 report which is provided on the product page under specs.

The 2.1 Echo thing will be interesting to see how good it is, for normal people not us nutters. A sub with a 6" driver and 100W isn't really a sub, but should go much lower than most people are used to.
