Default Re: Longevity of modern passive components

Hi Andy,

Good to hear yours is going well. There must be many WAD and WD amps out there still going strong and we tend to only hear when folk have a problem or want to upgrade.

Time flies though and many are 20 years old now. WAD's various 300Bs and K5881s are well over 20 years - mid 90's - and many KEL84, KEL34, KIT88s etc are from the late 90's and early 00's.

Your amp is a mere spring chicken at 10 years but I'd be changing C12, C13 and C7, C8 in the next year or two rather than risk it
