I just replaced the capacitor on the Sine output on my Paia 4720 VCO. In 
thinking about this I was wondering how long components last and when they 
should be replaced. Any of you guys have a any ideas on this? Resistors are 
pretty hearty and normally don't break down. But what is the lifespan ( in 
years) of Caps ( all types), Diodes, Opamps, Pots, etc. ?

Any ideas?
