play them for an hour every year or 2 will be more than enough.

1 hour of device use is enough to fully reform the electrolytic capacitors?

it takes very many years to depolarise a standard cap - your being fearmongered by assholes on other forums.

the type of equipment where we need to worry about such stuff is from the 1970's or older
