Hi nice people at Diyaudio

I'am restoring a vintage SX-434 with a rather noisy phono stage.
Some say that the older Toshiba BJT's is getting noisy'er by the
time or maybe modern types are just better.
Would it help to replace the transistors with some modern type, say
BC550, or is this simple configuration just noisy by design.
