Default Electronics in the cold

I'm working on fixing up my garage into a workshop. It is free standing and uninsulated. Winter heating will be in the form of an electric workshop heater only used when working there, and would still be relatively cool.

If I put TV, amp, etc. in there, how large is the risk of it getting damaged when turned on in the cold? These would only be non-primo components of course. I'm referring to the case where the heating up of the circuits causes the moisture to condense and short out things. The manufacturers always print this warning on their literature. Is it a likely occurence?
