Items of that age generally require some replacement/upgrading of small parts, especially capacitors, if you want to get the sound it was intended to produce. Capacitors are known to degrade over time. Likely to need a good cleaning of all connections, inside ond out. They may need new tubes. They were all highly regarded pieces in their day, and are worth the effort to make them "just right". It can be fun to run a vintage system for enjoyment and as a conversation piece.
