Vintage DACs. Do they hold up over time?

I'm talking about Dacs from the 90s that were well regarded like the Timbre tt-1, Sonic Frontiers SFD2-MkII, Threshold DAC 2,
Wadia 25, Altis Reference, Levinson 36, Meridian 566-20, EAD9000,
Kora Hermes tube dac etc.
The DAC's you list are very well made. They should continue to work for many years to come.
Hold up? Do you mean quality of sound compared to modern dacs or will they keep working?

If using them for Redbook cd (pcm) replay, then yes if they have true Multibit d/a converters inside.
As Multibit converters have "Bit Perfect" conversion for PCM (Redbook)
They will give better sound if good ones, than todays Delta Sigma based dacs can.

You can do searches to find if they have Mulitbit dacs or Delta Sigma
