Depending on when it was made, the place it was made may not matter, as counterfeit or low quality parts were ubiquitous in the supply chain world-wide (depends on the age though).
Caps can go bad, but also realize that there are many pieces of older audio equipment that work very well even after many years. This stuff *should* last pretty well, and caps are replaceable (at least if done right).
I would test the system in as simple a way as you can before assuming the caps are bad. They could be bad, but it is not a given. It could have also been a bad production unit... how did it end up on the bay? was it ever previously opened?
