Default capacitors need to be replaced?

hello, I have a PPI 2075M amp working since 1990, my question is about the capacitors inside, generally, they need to be replaced after many years?

Only if they fail or go bad. Good quality electrolytics can last for a long time if they're used well within their voltage and current ratings.

thanks for your answer, it was very clear, actually the amps go fine and I did not note any problem.
