Can I power up tube preamp that's been unused for 8 years?

Tube Audio | Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums - audiokarma.org
Got back from surprise vacation and my Acurus Preamp is messed up. Have a YS Audio tube preamp I have not used in about 8 years as an alternate. Can I setup and power that up or do I need to worry about it like with tube amps? I don't have a variac. It is tube rectified and also uses 12ax7s. It worked fine when I put in the closet to try some different directions, e.g. passive, solid state.
