13 year old distressor pair safe to buy

How reliable would buying a 13 year old distressor pair be? do these things get a bit vunerable to older they get, and need repairs

Everything ages... but 13 years doesn't really count as old in electronics and I'd be fairly confident that the Distressors would be serviceable.

I've got an Aphex 109 eq that only decided to start working properly after 18 years :headbang:

Only another 5 years and those Distressors should really start to come into their own :lol:
