I've pulled small signal tubes out of 70 year old radios / equipment that were still working. really depends on like others said how hard they are run also the quality of the tube.  IMO, NOS tubes tend to last much longer then their new counterpar... 
A Night with three phono stages Allnic 1202, ANK and GoldNote PH10
you guys are killing me with how little you payed.  
Yamaha a-s2100 v Luxman L550AX v Accuphase E350
