Default Classe DR-8 Maintenance

I just bought a pair of DR-8's and they are working fine at this time. These units have never been worked on and I know I need to get the Bias and DC offset checked. I will have to take these units to someone to have this done or most likely have to ship them to someone. I would like to get the units integrated into my system and know they are good to go for a few years. This brings me to my question, what components should I have replaced to ensure they operate trouble free for a few years? The previous owners warned me that the unit have a lot of hours on her and I should have some of the caps replaced due to age and usage. So what components would you guys go after? I look forward to your response.
If you anyone knows someone close to Knoxville, TN to take these units to, I would appreciate the info. I would even be open to a drive to Atlanta area. I talked to Terry Dewick and he does not do Classe products. If I have to ship them, who would you recommend?

Thanks
Rob
